Therapies and Treatment
What is McTimoney-Corley Animal Spinal Therapy?

McTimoney-Corley Animal Spinal Therapy is a method of restoring health by gentle corrective manipulation of the bones of the head, spinal column, pelvis and limbs, thereby ensuring the proper functioning of the nerves and endocrine systems, which control the natural self-healing capability of the body.

It is important that McTimoney-Corley Animal Spinal Therapy does not just relieve pain, but it can, and often does remove the cause of other diseases. No cell or organ of the body can function properly without its correct supply of nerve impulses.

McTimoney-Corley Animal Spinal Therapy works with the body, not against it. The whole skeleton is treated each time, which means that any misaligned bones are not forced back into place, but are coaxed gently into re-alignment by manipulative adjustments. It is important to treat the whole body, because a problem in one part of the body can lead to problems in other area. Hence our motto ‘The Whole Body Whole’.


What is Canine Massage Therapy?

Massage therapy is a common treatment for humans and dogs can benefit in the same way too. Whether your dog has an injury, arthritis, or if you want to improve your dog’s fitness and performance massage therapy can help.

Canine Massage is a gentle, non-invasive treatment that can help reduce symptoms of ageing, increase flexibility, influence recovery from injury, ease pain and enhance rehabilitation.


What are the benefits of Canine Massage Therapy?

  • Increased and improved circulation and lymphatic drainage and general well-being
  • Relieves muscle spasm
  • Increases range of movement and suppleness
  • Removes toxins in muscles
  • Reduces chance of injury
  • Enhances injury recovery and can reduce swelling and scarring
  • Enhance performance
  • Induces relaxation by modulating the heart and respiratory rate
  • Anticipates potential problems


What to expect from a treatment

The therapist will ask the owner for a patient history before carrying out a whole body examination, including analysis of posture and gait. The therapist uses their hands to feel for asymmetries, muscle tone, tightness/muscle spasms, normal range of movement and heat or swellings.

The treatment will not hurt the animal; in fact most really enjoy it. The adjustments consist of a short, sharp thrust to the specific area, which releases muscle spasm, alleviates pain and returns the joint to its normal range of motion. This allows the body to restore its own natural balance and harmony. Massage therapy can be used alone on the dogs or combined into the session to provide an all round musculoskeletal treatment.

The client is advised on aftercare for their animal. A rehabilitation programme is also provided to try and ensure that the animal has the necessary level of fitness and musculature to cope with the demands made upon it, thereby reducing the risk of further injury.

Your animal may be relaxed and sleepy especially dogs after a massage. It is normally advised that the animal should be rested for 48 hours after treatment and then exercise can be reintroduced gradually.
