About Me

Who Am I?

I am a certified animal caretaker with a specialization in dog massage. I trained for 2 years and graduated in 2013 from Koulutuskeskus Salpaus. Since then, I have worked as a dog masseuse. I attend lectures and training sessions frequently to keep my knowledge up to date. At the moment, I am studying at Koulutuskeskus Salpaus to further my dog physiology competency.

Most of the dogs I have owned were rescues and had a lot of problems, which is why I became a dog masseuse. My knowledge has helped me solve a variety of problems, such as structural defects, trauma, osteoarthritis, and psyche (e.g. shyness and aggression).

How massage has helped my dogs


Oliver first came to us from Greece for special home care and then for special adoption, as he had a deformed front leg. The leg was causing pain so it was amputated, and now Oliver is using his body asymmetrically which will cause muscle tightness. Luckily with massage I can take care of him.


Nasu suffered from severe hip dysplasia, and was given a prognosis of 6 months. With the help of massage, she lived an additional 5 years after her prognosis.


Mokka (German Shepherd) had osteoarthritis and spondylosis. Before we took her in, she was malnourished and abused, causing malformation in her bones. Massaging and stretching helped with the pain, but her problems were untreatable.


Skidi (Great Dane) had osteoarthritis. She lived to be 11 years old thanks to massaging, even though her prognosis was 3 years.


Sulo (Great Dane) was about to be euthanized five times due to his aggression before joining our family. With proper love and care, he became a conformation show dog and a Finnish Champion.
