“I am an animal lover, and passionate about dogs. 

I was looking for a way to use my passion to help dogs and I came across Galen Myotherapy – a light bulb moment!

Galen is unique – putting the dog first and allowing them choice.

My training was a journey of enlightenment, and one that doesn’t end.


Being a Canine Myotherapist is wonderful. Being a Galen Myotherapist is extraordinary!

I am able to help dogs lead healthier, happier and more comfortable lives and this is truly a priviledge.

Allow me to treat your dog and I promise I will do my utmost to earn their respect and trust in order to improve their quality of life.”

I cover most of East Sussex and parts of West Kent and can be easily contacted to discuss any areas outside of those shown on my home page.

About Galen Myotherapy

A type of massage aimed at prevention, management and treatment of movement and associated disorders.

Galen was the first therapy organisation to discuss the direct connection between muscle pain and specific behaviour patterns. We guide owners and handlers in understanding how muscle pain can be reflected in their dog’s behaviour. This information and knowledge is also invaluable when assessing and detecting changes.

Galen Myotherapy can be effective in many conditions and situations, including:

  • Lameness, muscular injury, and repetitive strain
  • Osteoarthritis – in addition to anti-inflammatory drugs and also for dogs who are intolerant to anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Patella subluxation
  • Compensatory issues
  • Behavioural issues
  • Performance, sporting and working dogs
  • Post-surgery
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • Spondylosis
  • Cruciate Issues
  • Hip or Elbow Dysplasia
  • Osteochondritis
  • Maintenance treatments for certain conditions

My treatments will be specific to your dog and I will work closely with you to give you the tools to help your dog live a healthier and happier life.

The first appointment will be spent getting to know you and your dog and finding out about their history, which includes injuries and health, activities, exercise routine and environment, in order to build a comprehensive picture. It will also include a postural assessment.

You may see a change in your dog’s movement or behaviour after the first treatment, but it usually takes four sessions to make an effective change to a dog’s muscular health.
