Karen Young MSc, BSc (Hons) - Helping dogs lead happier, healthier lives

In a previous life I led teams of professionals on international projects, developed and delivered training programmes and ran European wide schools’ programmes. My roles were many and varied, full of challenge and amazing people. But I was not fulfilled, my life lacked dogs!

So, when the opportunity arose to leave the corporate world behind and set up Safe Hands Clinical Canine Massage I jumped at the chance. It meant I could adopt my two lurchers; Eva (11) and Benji (5). I could also work from home and support other like-minded owners with their dog’s well-being.

I studied for 3 years with leading organisations in their respective fields - the Canine Massage Therapy Centre and Canine Conditioning Academy. I continue to undertake regular additional training with these amazing organisations as I strive to be the best and provide relevant, incredibly beneficial services to my clients.

I have been trained in

- Massage; Deep Tissue, Swedish, Manual Lymphatic Drainage

- Myofascial release; direct and indirect techniques

- Canine anatomy in motion

I only offer services that I know work. I use them regularly with my own dogs to keep them fit, mobile and healthy and have seen the very real benefits. Making a difference to my own dogs and those of my clients is extremely rewarding.

I look forward to working with you and your dog.
