Somerset Canine Massage Therapy
About the Therapist
My name is Anna Willitt and I run Somerset Canine Massage Therapy. I’m based in Taunton, but also do home visits covering the surrounding towns and villages.
I worked as an animal rescue centre manager for four years, working with a wide variety of breeds of dog from different backgrounds. While I loved the job, I realised I wanted to work directly with dogs and their owners. Alongside canine massage, I also work as a dog trainer, teaching puppy and adult classes, hoopers and scentwork and assisting with agility classes. I have three dogs of my own, a Springer Spaniel and two rescue cross breeds, and compete in agility, rally obedience and scentwork.
I first discovered canine massage when my Springer Poppy had a free muscular health check from a guild member at an agility show, which found a number of issues. After three treatments she showed a huge improvement in her performance. She was later diagnosed with Spondylosis, and massage has helped to improve her mobility and manage her pain. After seeing how massage has benefitted her, and my youngest accident prone dog Finn, I knew I wanted to help other dogs in the same way, and have now completed the two year Clinical Canine Massage Practitioners course.
£35 per treatment.
Home visits further than 15 miles from Taunton may incur a small fuel charge, agreed at time of booking
Anna helped my old girl feel more comfortable in day to day life and my agility boy enjoy agility that bit more. I shall definitely be booking them in again for regular massage.

After his treatment Spud is no longer lame and is moving better than he has done in a year. I’m absolutely amazed!

Magic had been measuring jumps and knocking poles at agility, as well as looking stiff when getting up. After three treatments she is now moving more freely, and her jumping style has improved.
