CANINE BOWEN THERAPY

Caring for a dog who is potentially in pain can be a worrying & confusing time. Canine Bowen Therapy is suited to dogs whose owners wish to understand how their dog communicates their pains through behaviour & body language in order to make their life more comfortable. Through a combination of this non-invasive physical therapy & practical advice & education I aim to improve your dog's mobility while helping you gain the confidence to recognise signs of pain & take action to improve your dog's quality of life.

 

Canine Bowen Therapy is a popular choice for;

 

​chronic pain 

osteo arthritis & other joint issues

stiffness or muscular tension

recovery from injury

back problems

neck problems

digestive issues

stress & anxiety

emotional trauma

post surgery rehabilitation

physical maintenance for dogs in competitive /non-competitive sports /working trials

as a general boost to overall wellbeing

 

During a session the therapist makes gentle but firm rolling moves  over specific  points of the body which target the layers of 'fascia' (a type of connective soft tissue rich in nerve receptors). The session is interspersed with breaks which allow the brain & nervous system to process, recalibrate & effect changes within the body & to give the animal time to process what is happening.

 

Typical results reported by client carers after a series of 3 to 4 successive Canine Bowen Therapy sessions are ;

 

notable reductions in pain /discomfort

improved posture & reduced stiffness

increased range of functional movement

reduction in recovery time following high energy activity

improvement to their overall wellness & mood
