Smudge is a 12 year old Springer Spaniel. He has had a cruciate ligament repair 2 years ago and has been getting slower and stiffer recently.
"He was relaxed and calm and seemed to enjoy the whole process. I was very impressed with how Helen massaged Smudge. After each session, Smudge was more sprightly and he seemed to have more spring in his step" – Julie, Worcestershire.
Scilo is a Border Collie and competes at agility. He had not been performing at his usual standard and his jumping style looked stilted.
"Scilo was very well behaved. Helen handled him very well. She has a natural ability to put the dog at ease. After 3 sessions he showed improved performance, better flexibility and range of motion within the joints and muscle. Much improved movement – less sore" – Chris, Herefordshire.
Mickey was a 13 year old Greyhound who had arthritis and was very stiff in his back legs. He didn’t want to go out for walks. (Sadly, Mickey has since passed away. Thank you Christine for allowing me to use your testimony).
"Mickey completely relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the treatment and attention. Helen handled him perfectly, with gentleness and confidence. There was an improvement in Mickey’s condition after the first treatment. He is now keen to go for 2 gentle walks a day" – Christine, Worcestershire.
Ziggy is a 7 year old working Springer Spaniel with intermittent lameness on his left foreleg and occasional ‘bunnyhopping’ on his hind legs.
"Helen handled Ziggy extremely well. She was very professional, put the dog at ease and explained all treatment and her thought process for this. Generally better movement. Improved muscle tone. Dog very relaxed and obviously enjoys massage" – Julie, Gloucestershire
Ash is a 12 year old Greyhound with arthritis and has a poor appetite. His balance is quite wobbly.
"Ash responded well to the treatment, he was very relaxed on the first session but was keen to let Helen know when she was approaching a tender area. Helen was very patient with him and listened to what he was telling her. Right from the first session Ash seemed to have an improved appetite and following all sessions he showed more interest in food. He appears less stiff when trotting around and hasn’t fallen over, something he was doing on a regular basis. Overall I feel Helen had great empathy with Ash, she took time to introduce herself to him and he was very happy to see her each time she visited" – Jenny, Worcestershire.
