I was first introduced to canine massage when my eldest dog was diagnosed with arthritis in both her stifle joints, she was prescribed a NSAID (anti-inflammatory) for the rest of her life. As she was only 5 years old and in her prime, I was so upset. It was at the White Orchid Canine Hydro Pool, that I was introduced to the Galen Canine Therapy.
After Rafiki’s first treatment she showed great improvement and by the 3rd treatment she was off of the painkillers and had returned to a normal life. Soon after I took a workshop on the Introductions to Canine Therapy so that I could understand why canine therapy had helped Rafiki and to be able to maintain her condition. It was at this workshop that I got to learn of the so many benefits of massage. This workshop gave me an appetite to complete the diploma so I could treat other dogs and improve their lives.
I completed the Canine Anatomy and Physiology course, then onto the immensely intensive diploma course. Having gained my Galen Diploma I am now developing my new career and treating a vast array of different dogs with different conditions from the family dog that is looking for a better quality of life due to a lack of mobility, or competition dogs that are looking for enhanced performance, including the work I did on pre and post event Canicross Trailrunner huskies.
Every case is different and also wonderfully challenging but always immensely rewarding seeing the positive results!
I also support Galen Myotherapy in my role as an assessor for our diploma students, and work alongside the rest of the team with all things administrative too, ensuring Julia gets to wherever in the world she needs to be.
