Pet massage class Feb. 25 in Nebraska City


If your four-legged friend is anxious, stressed, or old and achy, they may just need a massage. Massage therapist Jodie Kreifels will be teaching a Pet Massage class on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 9:30-11 a.m. at the Nebraska City Learning Center, 1406 Central Ave.

“Do you have an anxious dog? Stressed? Just getting old and maybe have a lot of pain? Want to increase your dog’s mobility? Help with their coat and skin to look better? Just plain want to treat your four-legged buddy because they are the best? If you answered yes to any of these, this is why you should take this class,” Kreifels said. “We want to give our four-legged friend, whether cat or dog, the best we can! Because they deserve it.”

According to the American Kennel Club, massage can benefit your pet’s mental and physical health. It can also reduce stress and anxiety, increase circulation, decrease pain, and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Also, it can help to identify new growths at an early stage.

In addition to being a licensed massage therapist, Kreifels has a seeing-eye dog she takes everywhere. She has several dogs that are spoiled with frequent massages. She hopes people who take her class can leave with plenty of useful information.

“Individuals will take away the knowledge of basic massage for their four-legged friends and learn different strokes and modalities to assist with their pet needs,” she said. “You will also learn different tips and tricks to help your furry friends!”

Kreifels lives in Nebraska City with her husband and three daughters. She’s been massaging pets since 2011.
