There are two people in my life who have been responsible for the shaping of my successes. I would like to bring attention to them.

My mother, Madolynne Whiting, gave me my financial start by helping me purchase my first ranch, which was to become the home of Geary Whiting’s Equine Massage School for Horse and Rider in 1998 and the start of a wonderful adventure in the horse world.


The second person is Dr. DoAnn T. Kaneko, who taught me the art of Shiatsu Anma Massage in 1985 and has followed my successes in the sports world of World Class Athletes. Like my mother, he has been a supporter of my successes.

This elegant person is responsible to a rather large degree for who I am. She cultivated my heart from a very early age. My mother has been my number one supporter throughout my whole life. As I look back, many of my accomplishments came about as a result of a burning desire to honor my mother and father and live up to the fine name given to me. One such desire has been to create an equine massage school that really is different. I wanted a school that changes lives. It is with pleasure that I dedicate this school to Madolynne Hilton Whiting, my friend, my mother. Without this lady, none of this would have been possible.

Dr. Kaneko is a man to whom I owe much. After graduating in 1985 from his school in Santa Monica, California, I felt that I had the tools to help many people with problems return to a happy pain-free life. I went well beyond both Dr. Kaneko’s and my expectations. Dr. Kaneko is a man of great honor, and his example of extraordinary qualities had a great influence on me. We all need role models, and I could not have had a better one. Two very important qualities we both share are a big heart and the love of helping others. It is with great pleasure that I dedicate this page to Dr. DoAnn T. Kaneko… the man… the friend.
