Animal Ally of Arizona grew from Nancy McDonald's passion for helping animals and their human companions to live richer, fuller, healthier lives together. Nancy is certified by the Rocky Mountain School of Animal Acupressure and Massage in three levels of Canine massage; Therapeutic Massage, Sports Massage and Massage for the Senior Dog. She is an Attuned Reiki Master in Usui Reiki and has attended trainings in essential oil for animals, animal acupressure and animal communication.

Nancy’s volunteer commitments include canine massage for sheltered dogs at the Pima Paws for Life rescue organization, volunteer at The Animal League of Green Valley and assisting with Special Olympics. She also serves as Treasurer on the board of the Arizona Integrative Wellness Coalition.

Nancy has facilitated healing in dogs, cats, horses and humans, and is comfortable working with other species, as well.  Some of the changes she has observed in her clients include: Jacque O., “limping less”, Cate, “displaying more energy”, Leona, “having fewer seizures”, Cody, “barking less”, Theo, “showing increased range of motion”, Calvin, “recovering faster”, and Baby Girl, “experiencing less pain”.
