Yahoo Discussion Group Started
Click to join COAAMB
We have formed a Yahoo Group called COAAMB for members to communicate with each other. Meeting information will also be available on the group calendar. Please join our group if you are a professional, student or teacher practicing animal massage, bodywork or energywork. The Yahoo Group is COAAMB because the "CAAMB" name was already taken on Yahoo.
Past meetings & events

alternatives (and our right to practice on animals whether a vet is in the room
or not). To learn more about CAAOR, please visit the website at:
