Animal therapist Cathy Sauer featured at the ‘Odd Burbs’ comedy event

Posted by SusanStokes on November 13, 2013

It was an evening if rip roaring comedy for guests to the debut of “Odd Burbs” hosted by comedian Anthony Locascio on Saturday, November 9, 2013.  A private event held at Grape Finale in Flemington, the format featured four local businesses in a rather humorous way in order to create awareness of some unique business activities going on in the “suburbs.”

The focus of the evening was “fun.” Guests enjoyed food, wine and learning about local businesses and what made them each stand out from the crowd.


Cathy Sauer, owner of Chasing Dreams Equine & Canine Massage & Photonic Therapy, was first up, and so the entertainment began.  The charm of the show was that none of the commentary was rehearsed and was a work in progress, which added to the hilarity of the show.

Anthony, in his dead pan comedic way, threw out the questions Johnny Carson style, and Cathy did not miss a beat with her own dead pan responses.  The steady banter took some unexpected twists and turns to the delight of the audience.


When asked if she could explain massage therapy, Cathy had a few tricks up her own sleeve.  She promptly pulled out a giant stuffed Tiger and proceeded to demonstrate.

The demonstration of Photonic therapy continued in a humorous way with Anthony getting down on all fours to mimic an animal while Cathy worked her magic with the light therapy wand.


Somewhere between the cackles and chuckles, Cathy was able to explain how the brain actually stops sending healing messages to an injury unless stimulated.  Photonic therapy, which is painless red light applied to acupuncture points on a animal’s body, help to stimulate the brain to once again respond and help the injury heal.


Cathy Sauer grew up with animals and was riding horses with her grandfather at six months of age.  She teaches basic animal obedience, holds many certifications in animal therapy, and has worked with many types of pets and farm animals throughout her career.

The evening was a lot a fun with lots of laughs, and I came away knowing a few more facts about animal massage and photonic therapy than I knew before I got there.  Cathy Sauer was a delight, and Anthony Locascio is a riot.
