Certified Canine Massage Therapy
Broadway Animal Hospital is happy to offer canine massage therapy for our patients by Claire Martin and Marcy Allard of Peak Animal Wellness and Massage. This partnership with Broadway Animal Hospital allows patients to receive massage therapy sessions in our cozy consult room!
Claire Martin is a graduate of Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology and the Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage. Claire has years of hands-on working experience, including time at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley Veterinary Clinic, Longmont Humane Society, Alpine Hospital for Animals, and Boulder Holistic Vet.
Marcy is also a graduate of Bel Rea Institute of Animal Technology, completing the program in 2009. She is originally from upstate New York, and transitioned from working with humans to animals. Marcy strongly believes in full body health, and sees the body systems as a whole, instead of individual parts.
Claire and Marcy’s certifications in veterinary technology and canine massage therapy have dramatically broadened and enhanced their knowledge and connection to animals, allowing them to successfully excel and safely aid in the healing process of our companion animals. Claire and Marcy work closely with our veterinarians to gain a deeper understanding of the goals of each patient's treatment, and our clients to ensure that their expectations are being met.
Benefits of Massage Therapy Include:

Massage services are $1.50/min and are currently available by appointment only. Each session ranges between 20-50 minutes, depending on the animal’s mental, physical, and energetic state. We recommend increasing the time as your pet becomes more comfortable and experiences the benefits of regular bodywork. Massage services are also available to dogs attending doggie daycare, overnight boarding, or enjoying our grooming facilities.
