Kim Bauer teaches both our LAMP and SAMP programs and is based near Hood River, Oregon. She co-created our acupressure program and oversees the distance learning part of the program as well as teaches the hands on practicals.

Kim began studying animal acupressure and Traditional Chinese Medicine in the late 90’s. A few years later she discovered animal massage and found that the two modalities worked really well together. So, after 14 years of teaching elementary and middle school she chose to pursue certification in both animal acupressure and animal massage.

In 2005, she started her own business, Animal Ease Therapies and when not teaching classes for NWSAM she can be found offering integrative animal bodywork sessions throughout the Columbia River Gorge area.
