Pat with Jess

I am a qualified, experienced educationalist and therapist now specialising in equine therapies. These therapies are complementary not alternative. I have been riding since 1949, teaching since 1959 and practising complementary therapies professionally since 1991 .In 1994 I opened the Pat Ki School of Massage. I own two Dales , Olivia* and Jessica Sioux and numerous small animals - including ferrets! I have always been a very tactile person , learned massage in the 1980s and subsequently practised and taught body massage ,aromatherapy, infant massage, meridian massage ,Indian head massage, kinesiology and other therapies.

My passion for horses began when I was 10 years old and in 1997 I began to massage horses as well as humans . Since 1998 I have offered training in both equine massage and aromatherapy. All my courses have been validated by a professional body and my Equine Massage Diploma inspected and accredited by the president of the FHT ( Federation of Holistic Therapists). All my graduates and students are eligible for insurance.
