I have achieved incredible results using clinical massage on my clients dogs.
Elderly gentleman "Leo is less tense and gets up easier" Debbie, Aylesbury
Their owners have seen:
higher levels of energy
greater interest in life
faster and more stable mobility
ability to do things that they had previously stopped doing (such as going upstairs or jumping in the car)
more playful behaviours
But don't just take my word for it, read what my clients have to say!
"I’d like to thank Karen for helping me with my bad legs. I wasn’t sure what to expect or even if it would work, but I enjoyed my first massage so much that I’ve been for three more sessions and my humans are planning to bring me back for more. I’ve been given exercises to do between my visits to help build my muscles up and can see that they’re working. I don’t walk as oddly as I used to, my legs don’t collapse under me or get as tired and the twitchiness in my back is gone. I am looking forward to my next session and can highly recommend a visit to Karen if you need a bit of help too – she’s very nice and, if you’re a good dog, you’ll get a biscuit at the end too!" Murphy the Staffy
"My little dog Leah is due for her second massage. I can't believe the huge difference already after just one session. She is a happy dog again." Jo, Potten End
"Zoie says thank you for a great session again today. It's great to know that in your safe hands she is a fully fit K9 Flyball athlete - and she is raring to go !!" Terry, Uxbridge
"Razzy was in a considerable amount of pain when he met Karen, she gained his trust and has worked wonders and after two sessions he's so much better and back to his usual happy, tail wagging self. Thanks for everything Karen" Kirsty, Stanmore
"I can't thank Karen enough for all she does for my Golden Retriever,Watson. Although tbh he didn't have anything chronically wrong with him this time round, all I can say he so loves his treatment, she's done extra stretches for us this time round as we have a show on Sunday where the judge assesses movement amongst other things. So it's really important he's 'at one' so to speak! " Karen, Bushey
"We have two spaniels ..one of which is bomb proof... and one who thinks she is. Thankfully Karen is there a every step of the way when Rosie decides to jump, twist, mis-step, slip, slide or just be a completely insane spaniel ...and damage herself yet again! The work Karen has done to help maintain Rosie so that she can be a 100mph spaniel and enjoy life is amazing.. and then there is the added side.... problems with incontinence... an unbalanced gait ... and a dog that did not like touch particularly and would never really “rest”. Not any more .. all issues gone and a dog that is really happy having time out with you now in between zoomies... she has become a super balanced dog and simply LOVES her sessions with Karen ... to the point she almost dozes off! Brilliant service, exceptional dedication to her craft and to her patients .. cannot recommend Karen enough!" Jackie, Welwyn
"Our two Jack Russell terriers, Peanut & Tyson, are so massively improved in their ease of movement and just all round happiness. Karen was wonderful with them both...Thanks Karen!!" Cheryl, Luton
Coco has had surgery on both his knees, but after the second operation he was lame and in pain. After trying hydrotherapy without success his owner came to see me.
"Well after only two sessions I saw a huge improvement in coco’s walking I’ve been going every month since. Coco no longer has any problems with his knees and we only go back to Karen for maintenance...I’m so grateful to Karen for everything she had done for coco so he can live a happy and active life. Thank you so much Karen you are one in a million" Michelle, London Colney
"I have 4 show dogs, 3 adults and a 10 months pup. After meeting a therapist at a show decided that if it could improve my dogs lives especially as one has Hip Dysplasia (HD) it would be worth a try.
The three adults were treated by Karen. The dog with HD is now doing things that she was reluctant to do before. Massage has also improved the movement/gait of another so that she is being placed again in the show ring with critiques comments like "excellent on the move".
The difference of before and after treatment is unbelievable, and I recommend Canine Massage Therapy to anyone I meet if their dog has a problem. Especially if their dogs have got a bit grumpy, as dogs mask their pain and use other parts of their bodies to compensate, which in itself causes more pain. Just a few sessions of massage can give the dog a better life, even with ongoing problems allowing them to cope better." Tricia, Watford
