We are a canine massage therapy specialist, based in Maidenhead, Berkshire and we are really excited to announce the launch of our new website www.bigbrowndogtherapy.co.uk.
Our Journey of discovery
Our website signifies the launch of our business. The last 8 yrs have been a really exciting journey for me. I have a traditional corporate working background and in 2008 I first became a dog owner. I bought home a beautiful and energetic puppy, Tabasco. He in many ways has been the inspiration for my new business and has certainly played a big part in igniting my passion for dogs. As Tabasco started to grow I very quickly realised that I had a lot to learn about dogs and how to better care for him. It was this experience and a chance conversation with a friend that lead me to realise that there are opportunities out there to work with dogs. I started to undertake various courses and further research lead me to the Galen Therapy Centre whose intensive, high level and externally accredited qualification came highly recommended. In 2014 I gained my professional canine massage therapy qualification.
What is Canine Massage Therapy?
So, what is canine massage therapy? Well, simply it is dog massage, and it is a treatment that can help with a whole host of ailments. The treatment is primarily intended to alleviate symptoms for long term conditions such as osteoarthritis or hip dysplasia. Canine massage therapy has noticeable effects on the dog’s various organ systems, helping to keep the tissue healthy and promote healing.
We always work alongside your vet and you will see throughout the site that there is a downloadable vet consent form which needs to be completed in advance of any treatment.
What are the symptoms?
There are a number of different symptoms that a dog may exhibit which may be helped with canine massage therapy. How do they feel after work, rest or play? Have you noticed a recent change in their behaviour? Do they seem restless? Do they no longer enjoy going for a walk? These all suggest that something may not be ‘quite right’.
What does treatment look like?
Each treatment is tailored to each individual dog’s requirements. We use our simple ‘Question – Observe – Feel – Treat – Advise’ assessment process to work out the best form of treatment for your dog. Then working along side your vet we would come up with the best course of action. To find out more about our care packages CLICK HERE.
