Physical therapy for pets with Liz Eddy
| Flatfield Pet Therapy centre is now based between Perth & Dundee for dogs But I still travel all over Scotland to work with horses. |
Using a combination of traditional and energetic bodywork, learnt over 20 years, I use Shiatsu, massage, craniosacral and myofascial techniques to release tightness and restrictions in skeletal and soft tisse function to relieve pain and promote well-being, both physically and mentally...
I trained with Pamela Hannay of the Ohashi Institute and qualified in 1999. Over the following years, I have taken CPD courses in equine and canine craniosacral techniques, advanced palpation and joint mobilisation.
Shiatsu literally means "finger pressure" and is based on the concepts of traditional oriental medicine. The basic techniques involve pressure with palms, fingers and thumbs, along with rotations and stretches of legs, neck and tail.
Shiatsu is a therapy that you do with an animal, rather than to them. It helps the body to relax, unwind and restore normal movement and function. This helps to relieve pain, aid recovery from injury and restore both physical and mental wellbeing.

Shiatsu For Dogs
|I have been working with horses and dogs for the last 20 years but usually I do home visits. While this is still possible for dogs and other pets, I can now offer sessions in our new therapy centre here between Perth and Dundee. My speciality is older pets to help aid free movement, which not only allows your pet to be more comfortable but can also reduce the amount of drugs needed. Shiatsu is a gentle therapy which works with your pet rather than pushing his body in ways that may be uncomfortable and cause more pain. If there is a long standing problem, then more than one session will probably be required and for a condition such as arthritis, which can not be cured but only managed, then a maintenance programme can be arranged. Dogs need bodywork too!|
