Galen Canine Myotherapist
Cornwall and West Devon
My background in Environmental Health has given me many years experience of advising animal businesses and enforcing animal welfare legislation. It also introduced me to the concept of holistic pracitise and a multi modal approach to human health. We often present with one complaint, which rapidly turns in to several, complex issues which need to be considered and treated together in order to get the best outcome. Dogs are no different, except they can’t speak to us to describe how they feel.
When I was looking at ways to support my dog’s health, after surgery and physiotherapy for elbow dysplasia, I discovered that Galen Myotherapy approaches canine health in a very similar way. That contribution to a multi modal approach, working with other canine professionals alongside the ethos that your dog’s choice is central to every treatment, ensures that together we achieve the best outcome for your dog.
As a training geek I am fascinated by how dogs learn. I use my knowledge of scent work, conditioning, positive reinforcement and shaping techniques in my canine therapy work with your dog. As well as using my skills to treat your dog using Galen Myotherapy, I will show you how to apply myotherapy techniques, teach your dog new strength exercises and introduce mentally enriching games to maximise their health and wellbeing.
To help your dog become healthier, see their joy as they move more freely and raise that waggy tail, hear your stories of how they are sleeping more soundly and getting back to their cheekiest best is the greatest reward I could wish for. It is a privilege to be part of your team.
