My name is Sally and I’m based in a small rural village South Newington, near Banbury, Oxfordshire. I am within easy access of the M40 and the Cotswolds - Chipping Norton. I also hold regular clinics in Daventry, Northamptonshire.
I am a fully qualified Clinical Canine Massage Practitioner, now working professionally after completing a 2 year in-depth course with the renowned Canine Massage Therapy Centre, accredited by Lantra.
Also a registered RGN, SEN and ENP I have worked for many years as a Nursing Sister within the Emergency Department at the local General Hospital.
The Canine massage Practitioner course has given me the expertise to be able to see, treat and help any type or breed of dog. I have been trained in 4 disciplines of massage that covers very effective manipulative techniques in Swedish, deep tissue, sports and myofascial release, which produces great results in aiding a dog’s return to mobility, vitality and supporting Orthopaedic conditions. I have a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology as massage works on all the systems of the dog’s body, not just the muscular system. This allows me to give safe individual tailored care to all, ensuring they receive the best therapy / treatment just like us.
Ever since childhood I have been very passionate about dogs; at present I have four - Three Border collies and one Working Cocker Spaniel - Tan, Tinker, Tess & Tarn.
Dogs have always played a very big part of my life and I have trained and competed in Agility for the past 30 years with great success - being a member of a winning team at Crufts, as well as the Pedigree Chum team winners. I have also competed individually at Olympia and Discover Dogs.
Over the years I have taught many people and their dogs in Agility, basic obedience and handling. Through this great partnerships have been developed between the dogs and their owners. This in turn has led to much success when competing as well as greatly enjoying their dogs in general life.
