Hello, my name is Valarie Ladymon, massage practitioner and owner of Sound Animal Massage. I have always had a deep love for animals and they have been a constant in my life. I first became interested in animal massage when I saw first hand the amazing benefits my black labrador retriever received through both massage and hydrotherapy treatment following an orthopedic surgery. His rapid recovery to healthy mobility started me on the path to pursuing a career in animal massage.
I received my training through Northwest School of Animal Massage and am certified in both rehabilitation and maintenance massage. I also use Reiki energy work to complement care during massage sessions. I am certified in both cat and dog first aid and CPR. I am nationally certified through NBCAAM as well as licensed by the Department of Health for the State of Washington.
