|Nikki Routledge PGD BSc (Hons) McTimoney Animal Therapist|
|Massage and mobilisation treatment for horses, ponies
and dogs with neck and/or back pain.
Neck/back pain can be caused by many factors, including ill fitting tack, falls or accidents, or hard workload.
Symptoms include changes of behaviour (such as napping, nipping when tacked up, bucking, reluctance to jump or go forward), or physical signs (such as holding the hindquarters and tail to one side, dipping the back when touched, jumping to one side or difficulty cantering on one rein, stiffness on one side or lameness.)
McTimoney is a highly recommended and thorough treatment which enables your horse, pony or dog to move freely and easily, without pain.
Nikki's geographical radius of action is all areas in the South West, from Wiltshire down to Cornwall and some parts of Wales.
