At Bancroft School of Massage Therapy, we take great pride in being one of the oldest and most active schools in the training of professional massage practitioners. We took what we already knew how to do, teach massage, and brought it to the animal world. We will continue the tradition of providing first class massage therapy training to individuals that have a calling to work with animals. In our animal facility, Doggone U, we offer 200-hour Certification Programs in both Small Animal and Equine Massage, as well as continuing education for massage practitioners.
