Aimed at hydrotherapists, experienced or newly qualified, this course covers:
- Massage in the hydrotherapy setting
- Types of massage
- Massage for different joints, muscles and conditions (including FCE/ischemia, spondylosis and muscular backpain).
In the morning we will cover the theory of massage, different techniques that can be used and then practice on each other plus the team dogs.
After lunch we will transfer to the hydrotherapy pool to practice on dogs in water. We return to the classroom at the end of the afternoon to look at a case study and for questions/discussion.
This is a Continued Professional Development course showing you how to use massage in a canine hydrotherapy setting. This is not a qualification course and does not qualify participants to use massage in a land based setting.
