Give your dog a new lease of life
Clinical canine massage therapy can help to rehabilitate soft tissue injuries and lameness. It helps to support orthopaedic issues such as arthritis and hip/elbow dysplasia. It helps improve the performance of sporting dogs including agility, canicross, flyball and obedience. It helps senior dogs with their mobility and pain management. Massage improves the dog's gait, posture, performance and behaviour.
What is Clinical Canine Massage?
My name is Lisa. I am a Canine Musculoskeletal therapist and run my practice at East Midlands Clinical Canine Massage & Therapies, where I provide a fully insured clinical therapy treatment & rehabilitation service for dogs.
I have always had a passion for dogs, I grew up with two wonderful rescue dogs and now I have a German Wirehaired pointer called Beefy, who takes up much of my spare time. We’ve participated together in agility, canicross and other activities including gundog training and scent work.
I decided I wanted to be a canine musculoskeletal therapist by witnessing first-hand the benefits that clinical canine massage and other similar therapies had on my own dog after she sustained a muscular injury whilst agility training. This led me to complete a two-year Clinical Canine Massage Practitioner course at the Canine Massage Therapy Centre. I am extremely proud to be a part of the Canine Massage Guild, a professional body of highly skilled therapists specialising in the rehabilitation of dogs, promoting safe practices, high standards and continued professional development.
Following this, my passion for keeping dogs fit and healthy, led me to qualify as a Canine Conditioning Coach with the Canine Conditioning Academy. I am a licenced coach and continue to update my knowledge, learning advanced techniques in the field of canine conditioning and fitness.
I am currently in the final year of the Canine Functional Osteopathic Practitioner Course run by Animal Osteopathy International (AOI) and in addition am also completing a Small Animal Rehabilitation Practitioner course.
By combining these skills, I can offer clinical canine treatments and safe and effective fitness and rehabilitation and conditioning programmes tailored for your dog.
My clinic is based in Nottingham and I have clients from across the East Midlands. The Clinic is designed specifically to cater for your dog’s treatment sessions, utilising equipment for canine postural and gait analysis, laser equipment (3b), and tailored canine conditioning and rehabilitation programmes for your dog.
