Information for Owners

Our deep tissue mobilisation approach can be used to release physical and emotional tension, improve performance and aid in rehabilitation. 

We are accredited as a further education training centre with the fourth largest national awarding body in further education (Ofqual regulated); NCFE.  Our level 4 canine and equine massage courses are accredited with NCFE.

Horse Owners

Often riders will have to deal with various behavioural issues, such as leaning on one rein, incorrect canter lead, stiffness turning one way, bucking, refusing to jump or general reluctance to work. Where disease and lameness have been ruled out as the cause, there is commonly muscle spasm and tightness leading to restricted movement and lack of performance or the symptoms listed above. Massage can release this tightness, enabling your horse to move freely again and the symptoms will resolve.

Dogs Owners

Dogs have different behavioural patterns but these are no less important. Frequently, dogs will lie down on the same side every time, or sit to one side, they may consistently get up when told to “sit stay” or “down stay”, they may run with their hindend carried to one side or appear stiff and uncomfortable either after exercise or after rest. Once again, where disease and lameness have been ruled out as the cause, muscle spasm and soreness lead to restricted movement and these “behaviours” which do not resolve.
