Louise is very gentle in her handling of Tess taking into account her age and the weakness in her back end. Tess seemed happier, more alert, had an improved appetite and improved mobility after her treatments. Thank you Lou.

After cruciate ligament surgery (TPLO) Oscar was still not weight bearing on his leg. Louise handled Oscar very well and was good with him. Oscar liked her very much. Afterwards he was walking much better on his leg instead of carrying it in the air. We are really pleased with Oscars progress and massage therapy has really helped with the rehabilitation following surgery. Would recommend to others.

Louise handled Teejay really well she was responsive to his needs and understood the fact that he really doesn't like being touched. She was patient and calm throughout. Excellent. Teejay is and agility dog who has had many different treatments through his life in order to keep him in peak condition for his job. He is nearly 9 years old and recently has been measuring his jumps. Since his treatment I am pleased he has more confidence to stretch out over jumps and his performance has improved significantly. Without a doubt he has truly benefited from the treatment provided by Louise.
