I love that I can help dogs lead healthier, happier lives.
I have a scientific, analytical mind and two science degrees; BSc (Hons) in Physiology and an MSc in Sustainable Development & Climate Change. It is this science focus that led me to train with the Canine Massage Therapy Centre and train directly under Natalie Lenton.
I completed the two year Clinical Canine Massage Therapist course; giving me a detailed understanding of structural canine anatomy (skeleton, muscles and nerves) and in depth training in massage techniques. I have been trained in Deep Tissue, Swedish, Manual Lymphatic Drainage and Myofascial release and all with a focus on their use specifically on the canine body.
Having been in practice for a couple of years I realised that many of my clients could benefit from some specific exercises to address the imbalances I was seeing in their bodies. So I completed the Canine Conditioning Academy's one year Instructor programme. This course focuses on canine anatomy in motion and allows me to develop scientifically robust fitness and core conditioning programmes for dogs.
I chose these courses because they are the best. They are both undertaking clinical research to prove the efficacy of their approaches. I am confident in my knowledge and skills and my results speak for themselves.
Being able to improve the quality of life of my canine clients and therefore indirectly my human clients too is a dream come true. I feel so privileged to meet so many amazing dogs and their owners.
