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.

Join us for Greyhound Doga

We have partnered with the MoveWell massage and yoga studio to bring doga (yoga with dogs) to Christchurch. Our first class is for owners with greyhounds only but we intend on expanding to mixed breed classes early in 2020. Doga is an opportunity for you and your dog to enjoy quality time together; we will have the dogs off-lead in the yoga studio to interact with you and others in a stress-free and fun environment. Both you and your dog will benefit from the relaxation, stretching and bonding time in a fully air conditioned studio.

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.
