WHICH PROGRAMME IS BEST FOR MY DOG?
DISTANCE SUPPORT PROGRAMME
Helping you to improve your dog's muscular skeletal health through detailed postural analysis, assessment of their functional movement and comfort level.
You will learn to apply two targeted massage techniques along with practical information on how you can support their long term health.
Practically every lameness in a dog will be from a muscular problem and most of the conditions we see are as a result of underlying conditions, old injuries or repetitive strains.
SUPPORTING DOGS AND OWNERS
"I joined the distance programme when Alfie started to show signs of being uncomfortable after exercise. The difference in him through treatment has been amazing. He is back to his usual self now and to watch the improvement with the knowledge that I had helped make the difference to his well being was such a fantastic feeling. Julia is one of the most sincere people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. Dogs really are at the heart of everything she does. Highest of recommendations!
Alfie is an ex obedience dog and was showing signs of being uncomfortable particularly after exercise and rest. I found Galen after doing some research and I am so pleased that I did! The difference in Alfie over a short period of time is truly amazing. He is much more comfortable, happy and enjoying everything with the usual Alfie verve and enthusiasm!
When you know something isn’t right with your dog, it’s such a worry especially after they give us so much and I believe that we owe it to them to give back what we can. Julia has been amazing, guiding me and helping to improve Alfie’s well-being through the distance programme. I have learnt so much about him and to know that I have made a difference means the world to me.
I can’t thank Julia and Galen enough!"

"I used the Distance Support Programme for my elderly spaniel, who really doesn't like strangers getting too close, so the remote support was perfect. I was blown away by the report that I received; it was so insightful on his physical state, all from just a bunch of photos and videos. I really appreciated: the walk through each element assessed; the thoughts behind what caused his poor posture and gait; and the really practical, achievable solutions that were set out.""

"I'm so thankful to have found Galen Myotherapy and feel especially lucky getting to work with Emma on improving Rhuma's mobility issues (16+ yrs Jack Russell). From receiving the first report on Rhuma's comfort scale results and pictures, followed by video feedback and discussion on how the treatment was progressing Emma’s knowledge and support has been brilliant. The massage techniques (applied 3-4 times a week) shared with me were easy to use and I soon noticed a difference in Rhuma. In particular, her willingness and ability to run around has improved significantly. She quickly got used to (and really enjoys) her relaxing massages and these will continue to be a regular part of her routine. I'm looking forward to continuing to work with Emma and learning more about how Galen Myotherapy can help Rhuma."
