I began massaging our cat a couple of months back. This is an older cat (10+) who was somewhat shy, not aggressive or mean, but 'distant'.
Since that time, she's been totally hooked on deep bodywork; she loves it. She comes for her "session" at least twice per day; has had some amazing personality changes, and looks totally stoned after a treatment.
for fun, I'm thinking of doing a YouTube video on working with her. It's very cool how much she's opened up to touch; how her trust level has changed... etc. I think there's a lot of lessons to learn from animals ... once you work up the trust bit for them - takes patience - they respond amazingly.
I had never worked on animals before (well, once, did some cranial work on another cat, 15 years ago), but I have to say, I'm blown away by the openness and soul of these creatures.

When I'm doing CST work on my partner, the cat comes and sits on her tummy. Those cats have it so tough. Seems to me that they want to be part of the "scene" and seem to have very powerful empathetic connections to what is happening.
I see from your site that you're working on horses as well. Interesting! I've designed websites for two clients, one who does energy work for horses, the other who sells a line of nutritional supplements for equines as well (www.horsepowerherbs.com). Her focus is more for performance horses than hobby horses, but the supplements have worked miracles for the animals as well and are endorsed by Kentucky Derby winners.
I think working with animals can open people up to a whole other realm of the subtle communications at arise between sentient beings.
