Treatments & Pricing
Consultation and Initial Treatment - £40
The initial session will last approximately 90 minutes and starts with a consultation, followed by an assessment of your dog and the first treatment. I will also take photos of your dog that will be used alongside other information gained from this and further sessions to monitor your dog's progress, as well as to create a personalised treatment and management plan for your dog.
Follow-Up Treatments - £35
Each follow up treatment lasts approximately 45-60 minutes and will include a discussion of any issues/improvements seen between sessions, photographing your dog, assessing your dog's condition and the Myotherapy treatment.
Maintenance Treatments - £35
In some cases, a single treatment every 4-6 weeks may be beneficial in the management of your dog's condition. They are also recommended if you notice your dog's condition is getting worse. Contacting me as soon as you notice deterioration may help reduce the need for several follow-up treatments.
The first 30 miles of travel from Middleton on the Wolds are free. Thereafter, there will be a small per mileage fee, which will be discussed when booking your first appointment.
Distance Support - £125
This is an online support programme that is suitable for those located more than 50 miles away from Middleton on the Wolds or those who have extremely nervous dogs. Click here for more information.

This programme is suitable for those who live outside the treatment radius or for those whose dogs have extreme people phobias. It is designed to provide you with the necessary information and advice to enable you to treat your own dog. There are two programmes; Standard Support and Plus Support:
You will be required to complete and return a consultation form, including a Galen Comfort Scale© as well as provide a variety of photos and videos of your dog. This information will provide me with valuable background information and will be used to assess and monitor your dog’s condition.
Once this information is received, I will create and provide you with an individualised Assessment Report that will include:
A physical, postural and movement analysis, with explanations and pictorial diagrams that provide a clear insight into the evaluations
Information on implementation of Galen’s Positive P.A.C.T.® to provide your dog with choice in their treatment
Three massage techniques that are safe for you to use, with video instruction of their use
Environmental and lifestyle adaptations that will support the health and wellbeing of your dog
