Enhancing and Improving The Lives of Dogs

For the treatment of dogs with chronic muscular pain using postural and environmental assessments, massage techniques and rehabilitative management to enhance mobility and improve their health.

Welcome to Curley Canine Therapy

 

My name is Carole Curley

I use Galen Myotherapy, a type of massage aimed at prevention,

management and treatment of movement and associated disorders.

This is a “choice-led” treatment for your dog. They will never be restrained and can choose to walk away. The treatment physically manipulates the surrounding tissues which creates a positive bio/neurochemical and physiological change, thus improving the integrity of the tissue.

For the treatment to have a successful transformational change physical and emotional changes to the dog’s perception must occur. The way I will handle your dog will positively influence mood and emotions. Creating a safe environment and a positive relationship.

The effects are Direct – using the skin as a conduit for hands-on manual application and Reflexive through the neurological and hormonal effects.

 

Which Dogs Benefit From Myotherapy?

Rescue Dogs

Most often you will not have access to the dog’s history and can only guess why they do what they do, or do not like certain things.

Do you recognize any of these behaviours?

Elderly Dogs

It is hard to watch your dog getting older, particularly when they cannot do the things they used to love.

Do you see any of the following changes in your dog?

Overweight Dogs

It is difficult to say no to extra treats and food from your own plate when looking at their beseeching eyes. But being overweight can lead to some unpleasant diseases:

Can you feel your dog’s ribcage? Does he / she: • Waddle • Struggle up steps • Have no waist • Have a big neck • Seem lethargic • Pant heavily after exercise

Massage can ease discomfort and pain. It can reduce soreness and stiffness. It can improve circulation and soften tight muscles.

Working Dogs

Depending on whether your dog works as a Guide dog, a Police dog, Search & Rescue, a PAT dog or competes in sports such as Agility or Flyball it can be prone to repetitive strains from doing the same movements and / or myofascial issues or injuries.

NB: Reduced rates available for working/Service dogs

This is by no means an exhaustive list and other examples are dogs suffering from disease or degenerative conditions, disabled dogs, and those recovering from surgery.

Testimonials

  • Carole was very patient with Rainbow and explained everything as we went along – lovely lady

    Rainbow

    A beautiful retired flyballing Collie with osteoarthritis and muscular atrophy
  • Nellie absolutely loved her sessions with Carole. She would lay on the mat all ready and waiting. The massage most definitely helped Nellie to feel better. Carole was very professional and friendly throughout and gave me a lot of helpful advice. Carole has the magic touch

    Nellie

    A calm and affectionate Springer Spaniel with elbow dysplasia
  •  My Shih Tzu Harry aged 10 years developed severe arthritis, restricting movement, although he appeared very content. Carole spent several sessions helping Harry to find comfort, enough to regain the desire to play. That and his medication certainly gave benefit. Carole’s gentle and caring manner and guidance helped me, also, deal with the situation

    Harry

    A handsome and affectionate little lion
