Myotherapy is a form of therapy used to treat and prevent soft tissue pain and restricted joint movements caused by muscle or myofascia dysfunction. We mainly deal with chronic, ongoing compensatory issues due to conditions such as repetitive strain caused by jumping for example, injuries or surgical procedures. Pain could also be a trigger for behavioural issues.
We use a broad range of massage techniques, and can advise you on how to manage your dog's needs on a daily basis whether it is around the house, exercise (indoors or outdoors) and massage techniques.
Galen Myotherapy treatment can not be applied without your veterinary consent as per The Animal Welfare Act 1966 - The Veterinary Surgery (exemptions) Order 1962 (no 2557) no 4(a)

Changes can be very subtle, however you would be able to spot them: change in the posture (maybe the back end appears rounded), change in the behaviour (maybe becoming "aggressive" with other dogs), change in appearance (hair looks different in one area for example) and change in the mobility (walks are taking longer). If your dog shows two or more, he/she might be experiencing chronic muscular pain and could benefit from Galen Myotherapy.
We will not be able to treat a dog without their veterinary surgeon consent. If you feel your dog would benefit, please send us their full details and we will be very happy to contact them on your behalf.
This could be decided after the first session, no pressure at all. We usually recommend three sessions. At this point, we would be seeing improvement in the posture, behaviour and appearance.
