My dog Bosco has severe hip dysplasia and I was told by numerous vets he'd be in a wheel chair by age five. After numerous surgeries and trying physiotherapy and chiropractic work with no luck, it looked like the wheelchair would be his only option. He showed huge improvements after his first Bowen Therapy treatment, and weekly visits soon turned into fortnightly, monthly, and now I maintain him with treatments around every six weeks.
After seeing how much it improved him I became a passionate advocate for it, and have become a practitioner myself.
With ongoing management at eight he now runs, plays, and is more active with less limping. I also take both my dogs running every day so he has great muscle tone as well. I'm not saying it's a magic cure, I advocate for lifestyle changes to manage health in people and animals.
I am a registered nurse and work in rehabilitation, so it is really exciting for me to be able to transfer the skills I’ve honed with people over to animals – including having an idea of how they’ll react to certain parts of the treatment.
