About Integrative Therapy
Really good animal therapy requires a knowledge of and empathy with the patient
it's all about the dog
At Canine Mind and Body Balance we believe the animals who come for therapy should be treated with respect. We nurture co-operation with our canine clients and work within their range of skills and abilities. If they really cant, or dont want to do something, we wont force them and will seek to find an alternative.
This means we have a very flexible approach to canine therapy and treat each dog as an individual with their own needs and abilities. Years of training and practical experience means we have a wide range of skills and techniques to choose from and this is what makes our therapies successful.
We prefer to try and start first with the treatment that will achieve most whilst doing no damage.
C.A.M. therapies are perfect for that.
There is also a strong emphasis on education here at the centre and we aim to take the mystery out of CAM therapies and help people to understand how they work and how they can benefit our dogs.
