Pet Therapy- A Client’s Testimonial

For this blog, I’ve decided to let one of my clients speak to Bowen Therapy for dogs:

My golden retriever, Sundance, turned 9 in April. I noticed he was slowing down on our walks and I attributed it to his age. Soon I realized climbing stairs was challenging, almost impossible, and our home is elevated. Our veterinarian added a steroid and pain killer to his regimen but that made him sleep all day. We visited Penny Michaels and I brought his condition to her attention for advice. She diagnosed the problems which were related to tendons and ligaments in his hind legs. He was walking with his right hind foot turned out. Penny performed Bowen Therapy that day. His sleep was restless that night however, the next day he walked with feet straight, no limping. Over the next week I saw improvement to the point my golden is now getting up to greet me in the morning like his usual self; he is climbing to the second floor to sleep in my room at night, which he has not done in six months. He is happy and most important, he takes no medications. I witnessed the relaxing of these tendons immediately. I can testify how much better the quality of life my pet is experiencing. I am very impressed with Bowen Therapy and Penny’s skills. We aren’t finished and will be back for a few more treatments. I am confident he will be walking with pep for quite a while. Thanks Aunt Penny!!

Our Beloved Pets

Our Beloved pets sometimes have issues too. And they often cannot tell us what is wrong.

Many times the animal’s condition can be helped with Bowen Therapy without any drugs or traumatizing stimulation to the animal.  Bowen Therapy is a wonderful tool for correcting imbalances or dysfunctions in animals.  Musculoskeletal problems are often easily remedied with Bowen Treatment.  Even emotional distress can be alleviated and digestive issues corrected.  By the end of the session, the animal is relaxed and feeling better.

Bowen Therapy on your companion animals is a very gentle and relaxing therapy for you dog or cat.  Most times during treatment the animal is so relaxed it naps for a bit.  For animals that get regular treatment, they come running when they see me coming!

Bowen Therapy is not something that needs to be an ongoing thing for most pets- I do enough treatments to correct the dysfunction, recommend an occassional “tune up” and that’s it.  Often if the dysfunction is acute (meaning a recent occurrence) the condition is corrected in about 3 sessions or less!  Chronic issues take more time.

Animals LOVE Bowen Therapy!

Housecalls are available as are office visits.  Simply call 772-643-5199 to set up an appt. Your pet will love you for it!

*I always recommend conversing with your vet regarding your pet’s condition.
