Christine Robotham has been practising the Canine Bowen Technique since 2005 after completing her training and qualifying with the European Guild of Canine Bowen Therapists. Before relocating to Northumberland in 2017 she ran a busy practise covering both the Midlands and the North West.
She prefers to treat dogs in their own home believing that in their own familiar surroundings they are more relaxed and receptive to treatment.
She is happy to discuss any details or questions that you may have.
The Canine Bowen Technique is a holistic, light touch, gentle, non invasive remedial therapy, which may promote pain relief, healing and body/energy rebalancing.
The Canine Bowen Technique is not forced on the dog, an important aspect of the treatment is recognising and respecting when the dog indicates it has received what it needs, and if it wishes to walk away at any time, it is allowed to do so, allowing it to return for further treatment when it feels ready.
What Happens in a Canine Bowen Technique Treatment?
The session begins with an introductory period, allowing both the dog and the Therapist to develop a trusting relationship. Treatment is then given by the Therapist using fingers or thumbs on precise points on the dogs body, applying very gentle rolling movements over muscle and soft tissue. Short breaks are given during the treatment to allow the dogs’ body to start the process of rebalancing/realigning.
At the end of the treatment it is often found that dogs (like human Bowen recipients) are very relaxed.
Conditions which may benefit from Canine Bowen Technique include but are not limited to:
- Chronic illness and degenerative disease
- Pre and Post Surgery (assisting recovery times)
- Acute injury/Sprains and Strains/Arthritis
- Mobility problems
- Stress and anxiety
- Lameness/gait problems
- Rescue/Rehomed dogs
- Dogs working in agility/sports
- Improving the quality of dogs life
Regular maintenance treatments may be of particular benefit for some dogs eg elderly dogs, dogs with chronic conditions, working dogs.
