Finbarr
May 2022

Helen was recommended to me by my vet, who suggested she might be able to help my aging lurcher, Finbarr. He is 12 and has had made 'good use' of his body over the years chasing rabbits and all the things that lurchers do. In recent months he had become stiff in his gait and in particular uncomfortable along his back and neck. 

 

He is very nervous of the vets, and not keen on anyone handling him, so I was amazed just how well things went when Helen visited for his assessment and a trial session to see if he would accept her. Going at Finbarr's pace and always allowing him to move away if he wanted to, Helen managed to get him relaxing into the massage and letting her do just about whatever she wanted! 

 

She has a very calm and patient approach and is clearly totally committed to her work. Fin has had four treatments now, and is lifting and stretching his neck again, and much more comfortable in his gait. He runs to the gate wagging his tail when Helen arrives, and the fact that it is a home visit makes a big difference to his ability to relax. All the 'trigger points' along his neck and back have been released leaving him much freer in his range of movement and a much happier old chap. She has just started to treat my 13 year old whippet cross too, as I want her to feel the same benefits that Fin is enjoying. 

Loki
May 2022

Helen came to see us today, she already knew Loki from before. He was so utterly thrilled to see her and took a while to settle, she was so patient with him. She worked her magic on him and made him so much more comfortable, he was standing so much better at the end.

I can’t recommend Helen highly enough. She’s so thorough, kind and patient and we can’t wait to see her again.

 

Thank you so so much.

Kenzo 
Feb 2022

Helen has been coming to see my 9 year old Lab who has arthritis in both back and front joints. She is amazing talks you through everything she is doing and why. Kenzo loved Helen’s visits and is straight on the rug as soon as she puts it down. The difference in Kenzo since Helen has been coming is wonderful he is like a different dog. He was limping and struggling to walk and now he’s running round like a puppy. Thank you Helen

Lilly
Oct 2021

Helen recently visited my 16 year old Labrador to preform massage to aid with her arthritis pain. Helen was friendly, caring and towards my Lilly. Helen was very knowledgeable. She explained everything that she was doing and the reasons why.

Lilly thoroughly enjoyed her massage, and the same day seemed more playful.

We will definitely be booking Helen on a regular basis. Thank you
