Pet Therapy

I have 2 cats (Zee & Chee) and 1 dog (Peanut) who I try my best to keep out of my studio. But if you are an animal lover and request, any of the animals can be let into the room to keep you company!

"Pet therapy can decrease:

  • stress levels

  • BP

  • pain

  • fatigue

  • anxiety

  • fear

  • isolation

  • loneliness.

Pet therapy has also been shown to

improve patient satisfaction, energy

levels, self-esteem, and mood, as well

as decrease depression. Additional

benefits include increased motor

skills and movement, improved social

skills and verbal communication,

decreased boredom, and a more positive outlook."
