Hermes, PhDog and Athena, PhDog – Therapeutic Support Specialist
The simple act of petting an animal can release a potent cocktail of relaxing hormones. It may also lower blood pressure and improve physical health. Inspired by emerging research pointing
to the many benefits of time with animals, our practice incorporates our 2 Therapeutic support specialist, Hermes (10yo Silky Terrier from Okinawa, Japan) and Athena (5 yo PBGV from Williamsburg, Virginia) upon request. Our two specialist maintain current immunization and health records. Grooming is upheld to the highest standards. In addition, their breeds have little to no hair loss and are consider “hypoallergenic”. A therapy animal is distinct from a service animal, which performs specific tasks for a person with a disability. It is also not the same as an emotional support animal, which provides companionship and support to a person with mental or physical health issues. Therapy animals undergo training to ensure they can safely and positively interact with people. Our specialists can be a catalyst for therapeutic breakthroughs. They may ease the minds of anxious children and adults and serve as an additional tool for connection in therapy. Research suggests that spending time with Therapeutic Support Animals may:
Decrease blood pressure
Improve pain management
Assist people with dementia in recalling memories
