Find your nearest Galen Myotherapist for 1:1 clinical massage treatment, rehabilitation programmes for chronic conditions or maintenance conditioning programmes so you can support your dog at home. Treatments are totally specific to your dog. We work very closely with you, giving clear information and instructions all the way through the process.

We are experts in pain and behaviour and will always treat your dog with respect. Your dog will always be given ‘choice’ using our Positive PACT® treatment protocol. We never use forced restraint and treatment will always take place on the floor or on a low level, where a dog is most comfortable.

All Galen Myotherapists are fully qualified and insured and only work with dogs that have a signed veterinary consent form that adheres to the 1966 UK Veterinary Act.

DISTANCE SUPPORT PROGRAMME

HELPING YOU TO SUPPORT YOUR DOG

Our Distance Support Programmes (DSP) provide 1:1 professional guidance for you as an owner, enabling you to help your dog at home. You will be supported remotely through the programme by your own dedicated and experienced Galen Myotherapist.

 

Using photos and videos of your dog we provide a detailed postural and movement analysis to highlight areas of weakness and compensation in your dog’s biomechanics. We then work with you to implement environmental and activity changes, and show you how to apply targeted massage techniques to improve your dog’s musculoskeletal health. 

 

Our Distance Support Plus Programme (DSP+) includes a bespoke 6 week rehabilitative and functional exercise programme to target weaker areas and improve their overall mobility, flexibility and strength. We’ll send you detailed instructions and work with you to ensure you're both performing the exercises correctly.

This unique online course is packed with information in a fun learning environment. You’ll learn about canine movement and develop key skills including two massage techniques which will help to improve your dog’s health using the principles of Galen Myotherapy. 

It’s ideal for anyone who is interested in gaining an understanding of their dog’s habits and behaviours, and how this relates to their dog’s comfort. You’ll also learn about basic canine anatomy, muscle pain from a dog’s perspective and how simple environmental and activity changes can make a positive impact on your own dog’s health.
