About Mell

My genuine passion is helping dogs to have a healthier, happier quality of life.
I qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in 1994 and have worked in practice as a Registered veterinary Nurse ever since. I have been around dogs all my life and currently have 2 Border Collies who compete at Agility.

I first learnt of Canine Massage when one of my dogs was having performance issues at agility and was amazed at the difference it made to her. I knew then that I wanted to learn more.

I trained for 2 years with Natalie Lenton, an expert in the field of Canine Massage Therapy and owner of the Canine Massage Therapy Centre. I am highly trained in advanced palpation and four disciplines of massage; Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release. 

Whilst gaining my Clinical Canine Massage Diploma I completed over 800 hours of learning and practical skills, including in-depth canine anatomy and physiology and the art of palpation to give the absolute best massage treatment possible for your dog. Every year I complete over 25 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and am proud to be a Member of the Canine Massage Guild
(www.K9-massageguild.co.uk), the UK’s national network of fully trained, insured and highly competent Canine Massage Therapists.

I have also studied for 4 years to gain a BSc (Hons) in Acupuncture at the College of Integrated Chinese Medicine and often incorporate the use of Acupressure Points during massage therapy to enhance the body’s response.
