Christchurch's only Fear Free
certified canine massage therapist

Whether recovering from injuries or surgery, managing old age, anxiety or other emotional conditions, or simply teaching a puppy the life skill of being touched, Fear Free is about managing fear, anxiety and stress throughout every session.  I use non-verbal communication and proven stress-free techniques to keep your dog comfortable and happy.   My Fear Free certification is in addition to my qualifications in dog massage and rehab – offering you and your dog a complete package of complementary care.

A mobile practice for dogs

Your dog is most comfortable at home – so the purpose of a mobile practice is to make life easy for both you and your dog.  I can see your dog’s normal living environment and suggest adjustments for their comfort and rehab.  I aim to make exercises easy to do with minimal equipment so you are more likely to do the exercises with your dog – win!

A passionate supporter of natural care options

My love of dogs and my experience as an environmental scientist have led me to creating this practice which focuses on natural care using acupressure massage, laser, trigger point and rehab therapies.  All clients must provide vet records for their dog as a starting point and then we can look at care options – things like lifestyle and exercise, flower essences, homeopathics, supplements or dietary changes.  The basic rule of complementary care is “do no harm” and my services are not a substitute for traditional veterinary care.
