Where you’re at…
You’re caring for your elderly or poorly dog. They may be in chronic/long-term pain and you are searching for gentle ways to support them alongside veterinary care as they get older or at a time when they are unwell.
You may be finding it hard to find approaches which support your dog as well as your dog enjoying it. You find yourself asking, how may their feeling fearful and unable to relax be affecting how they benefit from a hands-on session? You want your dog to be able to enjoy their time, relax and feel safe. You hope along with your dog’s understanding of what’s going on with their own bodies, your dog can make choices of how to guide the session, building a positive relationship of trust.
You want to look after your dog/your friend/your family member in the best possible way during their difficult time(s).
The problems your dog has right now…
Your dog is showing signs of being in pain and discomfort, perhaps they are wobbly on their feet and unable to do the things they used to do. They may be anxious and unable to relax or have lost their ‘Va, Va Boom’ and have a compromised quality of life. This often starts with a symptom, injury or painful condition many of which are presented at Canine Bowen Technique sessions, such as:
- Allergies and Skin conditions
- Arthritis and Muscular Sprains & Strains
- Back problems
- Lameness and other Gait problems
- Hip & Elbow Dysplasia
- Working or Competition dogs
- Aggression and other Behavioural problems
- Stress & Anxiety disorders
- Cystitis & Urinary disorders
- Recurrent Ear problems
What you need help with right now…
You are searching for gentle ways to support your dog alongside veterinary care as they get older and/or when they are unwell. You want a remedial technique that involves no hard or prolonged pressure, no cracking of joints. A soft-tissue, hands-on technique which is non-invasive yet effective that aims to promote healing, pain-relief and body/energy rebalancing.
You approach your dogs health holistically and want to work with someone who understands that. Canine Bowen Technique is a holistic technique, if you haven’t worked holistically before and would like to better understand the term, by “holistic” we mean that it “treats the body as a whole, without referral to named disease”. So (CBTA – www.cbta.org.uk) Canine Bowen Technique practitioners do not focus our sessions on the veterinary-diagnosed disease or condition per se, but support the dog, as they see it, on the day.
You would like the chance to explore the potential of Canine Bowen Technique for your dog. Find a way to explore working with a practitioner whilst allowing your dog to develop their own trusting, honest relationship with them and for your dog to learn the session is completely under their control. You want to find a technique which is not forced on your dog and to be involved in creating gentle, holistic support for your dog where they can make choices, be listened to and can relax.
You want to create the maximum potential for your dog to really enjoy their sessions, trust their time with your chosen practitioner and as such aims to further support healing. It’s important to understand Canine Bowen Technique as offered by CBTA practitioners (CBTA – www.cbta.org.uk), is never forced on a dog and if it wishes to walk away, then it is allowed to do so.
You can see it is important for your dog’s health that you work with a professional who works ethically and in collaboration with your vets. Carole (and all CBTA practitioners) will only offer Canine Bowen Technique in collaboration with the dog’s vet and only after receiving confirmation that the owner is working directly with their veterinary practice in matters concerning their dog’s current health, prior to commencing a session. Under no circumstances does she diagnose, treat conditions, prescribe or alter any medication.
You want to feel safe that you are working with a Canine Bowen Technique practitioner whom has the experience and knowledge worthy of your dog’s (and your), trust! Carole has been working as a human and Canine Bowen Technique Practitioner since 2009. There are only a few EGCBT approved training schools/providers in the world and Carole is lucky to be one of them. As one of their teachers she completed over 250 hours of postgraduate teacher training with Sally & Ron Askew (who developed the technique in the UK). Carole works and teaches to a strict code of conduct and professional ethics and exceeds all Human and Canine Bowen Technique CPD professional requirements annually, as well as maintain own liability Insurance.
How can the ‘Support my ageing/poorly dog’s well-being, which may improve their quality of life’. Canine Bowen Technique (CBT): Introduction Package, help you?
During the complementary 20 min telephone consultation I will have already explained how we all work together as a team (You, me, your dog, your vet, family and maybe even other canine professionals you are working with).
We will have talked through the best ways to approach setting up the sessions for YOUR dog. We will have created a plan to maximise the potential for Canine Bowen Technique sessions with your dog. Ways to help your dog start to feel relaxed and trust me during our sessions.
Canine Bowen Technique can be used with dogs of all ages and especially the elderly dog, aiming to promote relaxation and reduce the stresses of old age by supporting the body’s own powers of self-healing and has been offered for many years to support dogs with problems in the following areas:
- Acute injury e.g. sprains and strains.
- Chronic conditions and degenerative disease – helping to improve the dog’s quality of life.
- Rescue/re-homed dogs – relaxation of tension caused by earlier stress and trauma.
- Pre– and post-operative surgery – assisting recovery times.
- Fear-based anxiety – such as fireworks and thunderstorms.
The aim is to facilitate the channelling of the dog’s own resources so that it can determine how to heal itself. In this respect, therefore, Canine Bowen Technique can be almost all-embracing in its coverage. Although generally regarded as ‘remedial’, Canine Bowen Technique can also be used to good effect as a maintenance and a prevention technique, helping to keep the body in optimum balance. To this end, it may be very beneficial for active, hard-working dogs or dogs used for competitions in obedience, agility, or trialling.
Canine Bowen Technique does not ‘treat conditions’, through holistically working with the body and helping the dog’s own healing resources it aims to support dogs with such conditions through the rebalancing/optimising effects both locally and elsewhere in its body, which may help to improve its quality of life.
After these few sessions you will have gained a deeper understanding of the value of Canine Bowen Technique and our approach to working with dogs. We will have had the opportunity to consider many aspects of your dog’s life and how we can better support them holistically. We will have gained an understanding of how your dog feels about Canine Bowen Technique and working with me. Often only one or two treatments between 7 – 10 days apart may be all that’s required to achieve a noticeable change.
