Dogs can injure themselves through accidents or play and Bowen offers a gentle release of restrictions and discomfort. Your dog can be seen at their home or they can come to me, depending on their condition and character. Consideration of your dog’s age and temperament is a significant element in determining how best to support them with Bowen Therapy, so they feel safe and comfortable when receiving it.

I trained with the Equine College of Learning and Research, based in Australia, who developed the human Bowen Technique for use on horses and dogs, referencing it as Muscle Release Therapy. My qualification is in Equine Muscle Release Therapy (EMRT) and Cat & Canine Muscle Release Therapy (CCMRT), however I generally refer to it simply as Bowen for Animals.
