Group CPD for Hydrotherapists

Group CPD for Hydrotherapists

Complement your services by integrating Galen Myotherapy programmes into your hydrotherapy practice to offer enhanced rehabilitation outcomes. 


We’ll bring a new perspective to your hydrotherapy practice and hone your team's observational skills to better support your clients.


By looking at the relationship between posture and myofascial tension your team will begin to understand how it impacts on a dog’s movement and gait from a functional perspective. 

We will teach you targeted functional exercises which you can give your clients to do at home to help maximise your hydrotherapy sessions. 


This CPD is for canine hydrotherapists who are looking for an in-depth course on how to assess a dog’s posture to identify muscle imbalances to implement an enhanced and targeted rehabilitation programme.


'Many thanks for delivering such a brilliant CPD! Galen’s passion for dogs and openness in sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience made for engaging lectures and rewarding practical sessions. Galen Myotherapy has shown me a new way to approach assessment and treatment, consider functional movement and fascia, and many of my patients are benefitting from it'.
