Galen (Canine) Myotherapy is a branch of massage therapy which promotes health and treats chronic muscular pain in dogs through unique massage techniques and exercise management.

It’s concerned with the prevention, management and treatment of movement and allied disorders. It encompasses detailed assessments and effective treatment programs, including specialised massage techniques along with dynamic remedial and strengthening techniques, to manage the chronic muscular pain and inflammation that is caused by the many different conditions that are so common in a dog’s life.
Where did it start?
The therapy was first conceived when Julia’s own Labrador puppy, Huffo, who was recommended to be put to sleep at just 6 months old because he was suffering from an inability to lift his head from the ground after an accident. Through Julia adapting exercises for Huffo she was able to improve his condition and he lived happily until he was 17 years old! This led Julia to realise that that many dogs were being put to sleep due to a painful but manageable muscle problems. Huffo and the issues he faced with his neck were the foundations of Galen Myotherapy.

Julia established Galen Therapy Centre in 2002 and since then has worked tirelessly to improve dogs lives and their health. In this time she has treated over 8,000 dogs and trained hundreds of people in Galen Myotherapy techniques.
