I am a Clinical Canine Massage Therapist in Warwickshire. I have a clinic room just outside of Stratford upon Avon (Snitterfield) where I see clients evenings, Friday days and weekends. Contact  me for available appointment and we can find a time that suits us both.

As well as Clinical Canine Massage, I perform Manual Lymphatic Drainage and stretching sessions for dogs that require these specialist approaches.

I am a member of the Canine Massage Guild, Licenced Workshop Instructor teaching people to use massage with their own dog at home, instructor on the Clinical Canine Massage Practitioner Programme training new therapists and guest speaker on muscular health in dogs and the benefits of massage.

What is Clinical Canine Massage?

Clinical canine massage therapy helps with the rehabilitation of muscular injuries like strains, trigger points and myofascial pain which are commonly seen as lameness and slowing down. I also provide chronic pain management for orthopaedic conditions like arthritis and hip dysplasia resulting in improved comfort and mobility.

I can help sporting and showing dogs to maintain their performance, posture and gait or following an injury.

Results are usually seen in 1-3 sessions.

I use an integrative blend of techniques including Myofascial Release, both the Direct and Indirect approach, Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Swedish Massage as well as the trademarked MFR protocols from the Lenton Method™. I use Manual Lymphatic Drainage for specific issues such as reducing post operative swelling or oedema.

Clinical Canine Massage delivers results that you can see and your dog can feel.

Workshops

Do you want to learn to give your dog a 40 minute Swedish massage? or to warm up and cool down before and after exercise or competition?

Some dogs, and their people, prefer to learn massage in person and others prefer to learn in the comfort of their own home so there are sessions to suit everybody.
