Small Animal Division of the IEBWA
The IEBWA requires and upholds the same professional and educational standards for its small animal practitioners as it does for its equine practitioners.
Membership of the Small Animal Division of the IEBWA is open to students and graduates of an approved canine body worker/canine sports massage programmes that meet the same educational standards as the equine sports massage/equine body worker programmes.
Like the equine division, the small animal/canine division was established with the vision of promotion of high professional standards of Caninology Canine Body Worker® graduates and canine sports massage practitioners.
- To foster and support the training of student Caninology Canine Body Workers®, and to support, help and protect qualified Caninology Canine Body Workers®/canine sports massage practitioners
- To maintain a register of qualified Caninology Canine Body Workers®/canine sports massage practitioners, and to make canine body work by qualified practitioners available to the general public
- To be the coordinating and organising body as a central point of contact between all Caninology Canine Body Workers®/canine sports massage practitioners who are affiliated with the Association
- To provide a discipline and code of professional and ethical conduct for members of the Association, and to ensure that the required standards are maintained
Within each of the IEBWA’s International Divisions is also a Small Animal Division
As with our equine members, the IEBWA requires and upholds the same professional and educational standards for it’s Small Animal Practitioners, with a strong emphasis on anatomy and physical science. Some practitioners also utilize TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Accupressure, Craniosacral Therapy, and Nutrition.
Our members are well educated, professional, are required to maintain continuing education credits, accept a code of ethics, and are insured. Our schools are approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) and the IEBWA.
