How The Peaceful Paw Began

My name is Lori Gammon and I am a native of Charlotte, NC and the owner of  The Peaceful Paw.  I am also the proud dog mom of an adorable Morkie, Lily!

I have always been an animal lover . After 20 years of working in the healthcare field in Pediatrics  and after much soul searching I decided it was time for a career change.

 I became a Certified Animal Aromatherapy Practitioner in 2016 and received my certification as a Pet Massage Practitioner in 2017 through The PetMassage (TM) Research and Institute in Toledo, Ohio.  My love for animals was my driving force for The Peaceful Paw.  

The Peaceful Paw is an insured mobile canine massage service. Sessions are provided in the comfort and familiarity of your pet's home. I personalize and tailor each session based upon your pet's medical history, your concerns, and what I observe and feel during the initial visit.  

I service Charlotte, NC and the surrounding areas of Myers Park, Cotswold, Pineville  and Ballantyne. 

MISSION STATEMENT: My vision, as the owner of The Peaceful Paw, is to utilize my knowledge, experience and skills to be your ongoing partner in the health and well being of your best friend.  To act with integrity, professionalism and compassion toward each individual pet and their guardian. Foster ongoing coordination with my clients' other pet services to enhance total pet care.

SCOPE OF PRACTICE:  As a Certified  Pet  Massage Practitoner I am trained in the PetMassage ™ technique which aids in relaxation and initiates self healing of dogs through the use of knowledgeable, compassionate touch, compression, kneading and energy balancing.  The PetMassage ™ practice enhances the body-mind awareness of the dog. PetMassage ™ does NOT include deep-tissue work or extremes of joint movement.  PetMassage does NOT diagnose or treat specific disorders. PetMassage does not recommend specific dietary regimens.  As a PetMassage Practitioner, I can not diagnose, medically treat or prescribe any medications or give medical advice. Issues that I am not trained to address will be referred to your Veterinarian.
