I thoroughly researched all the canine massage training courses available, including those in the US, before deciding this course what I was looking for. I felt it had far better structure, content and professionalism and covered advanced techniques all others lacked.
With the theory part of the course work Natalie guides you through the dog from the inside outwards, anatomy, physiology, orthopaedic conditions, pathologies, everything that is essential before you even get your hands on a dog. She is always available if you need anything explained or expanded on, to make sure you pass your modules as you work through them. Continue reading Vreli Middleton, K9 Bodyworks, Devon & Cornwall

I have had dogs all my life and when I came to a crossroad in my career I decided it was time to follow my dream to work with dogs. I had met Nat at an agility show a few years before where she did a muscular health check for my old boy Bob. After watching her palpate my dog and listening to her talk about canine massage I began to realise how my dogs would benefit from massage never dreaming that I could do it myself.

Doing the Diploma in Canine Massage Therapy has completely turned my life around. Having looked at other courses on offer I felt this one was the most comprehensive and detailed. I was slightly apprehensive at the start as I dropped Biology before Oâ€™ level, hadnâ€™t studied for 20+ years. I wondered how I would get on with the Anatomy and Physiology. I really had nothing to be concerned about. Nat makes everything come alive and her â€˜can doâ€™ positive approach is infectious, as is her enthusiasm for Massage Therapy.

“Nat has made each of us feel special whilst we have been training with her – she has guided us every step of the way particularly when we were struggling with the volume and difficulty of some of the modules, helping with clarifications on all the questions that we could come up with, showing us as many times as we have needed how to carry out certain techniques, even down to making sure that we were fed and watered on the practical weekends, providing us with a wealth of practical tips and advice along the way to help us as therapists: its impossible to list all the ways she has helped us during the course.

I first tried canine massage when I purchased the DVD â€œCanine Massage Therapy in 3 easy stepsâ€ from Natalieâ€™s stand at Crufts.
The result of following the massage routine with my own dog was far more impressive than I thought it would be.I soon recognised the potential of therapeutic massage for all dogs and discovered the 2 year Canine Massage Diploma run by Natalie on her website. Continue reading Joanne Weston, Nottingham. Jasmine Canine Massage
The Canine Massage Diploma – not for the feint-hearted, but definitely for those with a passion to help dogs!
One of the reasons I chose this course over the others available, was the fact that I did not believe I could gain a sufficient understanding about Anatomy & Massage in a weekend. Having completed the Diploma, I now know this is definitely true.
