Galen Canine Myotherapist
Having been around dogs my whole life, and currently having the pleasure of
belonging to my own three, it was my working cocker spaniel Diesel who first got me started on my Galen journey that has brought me to where I am now, a qualified Galen Myotherapy Practitioner.
Diesel led me down a winding road of discovery and we explored every turn and
roundabout before finding that the treatment plan that worked for us was in the
hands of Julia Robertson, the founder of Galen Myotherapy.
Julia swiftly identified a possible iliopsoas strain and after several treatments and
following the Galen treatment plan we were literally back up and running, continuing our canicross adventures and I have never looked back.
Canicross is where my dog sport passion lies and I head up our local club;
Tailrunners SE Essex canicross running club.This position enables me to immerse
myself in the study of dogs both professionally, as a Galen Myotherapist, and personally when out and about with our members.
Through my position at the club I have also been given the opportunity to lecture the Canine Therapy students and Writtle University, and also present talks at local canicross events.
I further apply my knowledge by volunteering, alongside fellow Galen Myotherapist Hannah Capon, as a CAM Advisor for Canine Arthritis Management having also completed their CAM Advocate course, providing support for worried owners and contributing to their Big (and Little!) Charity Walks.
As a result of my journey with Diesel I have experienced both sides of dealing with
canine issues; the worried devoted owner and the qualified professional leading the therapy. This insight allows me to be an understanding, empathetic therapist who, trained to the highest level of knowledge, takes advantage of over 20 years of science driven treatment that has gone into building the Galen Myotherapy approach.
It is my belief that our ability to bridge the gap between daunting veterinary
diagnoses, confusing vet speak and the worried anxious owner allows Galen
Myotherapist to bring benefits for both canine and human family members alike.
With every dog, and every footstep they take, I strive to deliver successful Galen
Myotherapy to any dog in need, and will cherish every one along the way.
