Traci Geremia, BPE, Athletic Therapy, ESpMT
Traci graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Kinesiology degree, and a minor in Athletic Therapy. Traci spent a couple years working with the University sport teams as a student athletic therapist and also spent many hours working in a clinic setting. Traci found that she loved the work, however grew tired of treating humans. A few years later, she discovered massage therapy for animals and she knew it was what exactly what she wanted to do – where her heart was. With her education and experiences with both people and animals, she attended courses in the U.S.A.
Traci has had dogs her entire life and for the past 7.5 years has been competing in working venues with her dogs. Traci finds most of her clients are working, show, obedience dogs, or house pets who are aging, tired or sore. Massage is invaluable to both. She feels taking the holistic approach to healing, healing from the inside is so very important and working at the Calgary Holistic Veterinary Clinic with Chiropractors and Holistic Veterinarians is a key to her success with her clients.
Traci lives with her husband, and two children. She also shares a big part of her life with her Rottweilers, her 14.5 year old Malamute and 2 cats. Her pets act as her teachers and demonstration models for her work.
