Enhancing Canine Mobility & Wellbeing Through Myotherapy
For Mobility & Behavioural Issues
Myotherapy is a complementary therapy that uses massage techniques and rehabilitative exercises to alleviate discomfort and mobility issues that arise from a variety of musculoskeletal conditions.
Myotherapy can also help with certain behavioural or training issues. Sometimes these issues may be a result of undiagnosed chronic pain and by combining my knowledge of chronic pain indicators and canine behaviour, I will be able to advise whether a veterinary visit may be beneficial for your dog.
When Myotherapy Can Be Used
Myotherapy is largely used to treat the chronic effects of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, but can also be used to maintain performance of working and sporting dogs, as well to assist with some behavioural issues.

Changes in Behaviour
''Archie is less tight in his joints and specifically the lower back which is usually noticeably tight to anyone who treats him. This was the case after treatment number two so that is very effective!
