The world-leader in Canine Myotherapy education, treatment, and research
// ONE DAY INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP
Introduction To Canine Massage
About This Workshop
This practical workshop includes both theory-based learning and hands-on demonstration and is intended to introduce you to the benefits of Galen Myotherapy and canine massage from an owner’s perspective – and most importantly how it will benefit your dog.
Galen Canine Myotherapy can be highly effective in supporting your dog’s performance, wellbeing and recovery throughout all of their life’s stages - from pre and post-event preparation to improve or maintain performance in sporting and working dogs, to post-op recuperation, musculoskeletal issues such as osteoarthritis and hip dysplasia, lameness and injury.
The treatment utilises advanced, clinical massage and functional exercise amongst other rehabilitation techniques to manage chronic pain, reduce inflammation and support a range of canine musculoskeletal issues. In addition to professional treatment, tremendous benefits can also be seen when owners become involved in the process of caring for their dog’s muscular health too.

I just wanted to write to let you know how much I enjoyed the one day workshop I attended last December on ‘Enhance the health & performance of your Canine Athlete’.
I found it a very good, interesting course and learnt a lot; the warm up exercise was particularly beneficial. My dog, Dodger competes in Simulated Coursing Events and canine massage is an important part of his preparation for these events. So far this year, he has had a very successful season, including winning the 32 dog stake championship at The Thame Country Show. This win has qualified him for a major final that is to be held later on in the year
