WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE SESSION
A typical therapy session will take upto 1 hour.* You will be required to complete a medical history & general health questionnaire about your dog at the start of the session. If your dog is on any medications please provide a list of these. There will be an initial consultation at the start of every session which will include observations of the dog moving & I may even take photos or video footage which can be compared from session to session. This ensures the therapy is tailored to your dogs' needs. There will be short breaks throughout to give the dog time to respond to the moves & their welfare is paramount at all times- If the dog is giving signals that they have had enough then the session will end. Some dogs can become unnerved by the process on their first session - it is vital that a relationship of trust is built up between the therapist & dog, which can take time. It's not unusual for a dog to only allow the first 1 or 2 moves. These moves should not be underestimated as "less is more". You will be advised to book in 2-4 sessions for your dog to feel the full benefit of the therapy.
*Some dogs may require a little extra time, so ensure your diary allows for this when booking a first appointment.
***All dogs require veterinary consent before Bowen Therapy sessions can begin. This is a legal requirement under the 1966 Veterinary Surgeons Act. This will be discussed at the time of arranging the first appointment***
