East Lothian Clinical Canine Massage Centre
About the Therapist
Hi, my name is Hazel and I run East Lothian Clinical Canine Massage Centre. I live in Haddington, East Lothian with my partner Mike and 2 dogs, Bailey and Meg.
I grew up in North Berwick before moving to Dundee to study a BSc in Biotechnology. After working in a research laboratory, I travelled Europe as a specialist in high end products used in research laboratories. I have always had an interest in biology and how the body works and found the Clinical Canine Massage Therapy course fascinating.
I first came across massage as a therapy when Bailey developed Spondylosis in his lumbar spine and couldn’t handle pain medication due to his sensitive tummy. It made such a difference to him that I wanted to help others in this way too. I then started researching the various courses available and found The Canine Massage Therapy Centre. I haven’t looked back since!
I qualified In December 2017 and I am now fully insured ready to work with your dog on any issues he/she may have or support them in training and competing in competitions.
Dogs can come to me or I can come to their home if they are unable to travel. Please contact me to discuss this further.
In my free time, I love going walking in and around East Lothian and venturing further afield in our caravan.
Please give me a ring/email if you would like to find out how Canine Massage Therapy can help your dog.
I cannot recommend Hazel highly enough. Essence was one of Hazel's Case Studies when she was still a Student but is now fully qualified. Essence had never been to anything like this before, but had such a good rapport with Hazel from the start. We were instantly put at ease & with the soothing music gently playing in the background, Essence wasn’t the only one who benefited from the sessions There was a big difference in Essence after our 3 sessions with Hazel & we hope to go back on a more regular basis.

Kali started to play with other dog we have at home (which was on hold since her operation). I think she now trusts her leg a bit more so was a bit more boisterous at times. She sits more straight than previously (she would tend to sit on a bad leg as if to protect it before the treatment). She also seems to move beautifully when before she would often revert to bunny hops(both back legs working together). I was most impressed. You could see straight away a deep care and love that Hazel has for her patients. She always followed Kali’s clues and never made her feel uncomfortable in any way.

Sasha is no longer stiff in the mornings! We have not needed to give her any medicine since the second session, her posture has improved, and her appetite has increased! Which I think is due to her feeling much better. Hazel was very informative, and my dog took to her very quickly.
