As a devoted dog owner and renowned canine rehabilitation practitioner, Tim Norris works with both dogs and their owners, sharing his approach to health, wellbeing and happiness – at ‘both ends of the lead’. At Both Ends of the Lead, we help older dogs and dogs with Arthritis live a longer, healthier and happier life. FOR DOGS Areas Tim can help: CANINE MUSCLE FUNCTION THERAPY/BOWEN THERAPY We all know how much our dogs enjoy being touched and petted as a form of affection and communication between ourselves and them. With Canine Massage and Bowen Therapy, Tim uses refined palpatory skills and a range of techniques to help relax tired muscles and relieve pain. This assists to increase circulation to injured or inflamed muscles and assists in restoring optimal movement, quality and flexibility. Massage can help: Reduce pain and muscle tension Improve muscular and joint mobility Slow down the ageing process and reduce the effects of arthritis Improve movement quality, leading to enhanced performance levels for agility and show dogs Improve digestion Enhance the elimination of toxins Improve the assimilation of nutrients AND Help your dog live a longer, happier life! REHABILITATION EXERCISE THERAPY An exercise therapy program consisting of stretches, mobilisation techniques and strengthening exercises can be tailored to your dog if appropriate. LASER THERAPY AND LASER ACUPUNCTURE Laser Acupuncture is a way of treating traditional acupuncture points with a laser beam instead of a needle. By treating in this way, dogs also benefit from the wide range of positive effects that low level laser therapy brings about. This type of treatment significantly increases the range of conditions that can benefit from this approach. Laser therapy can be particularly beneficial for unhealthy cells within the muscle tissue, meaning it can help reduce pain levels, enhance the repair of damaged ligaments and the healing of wounds. Low level laser therapy can also be an effective tool for pre and post operative conditions. ONNETSU HEAT THERAPY Onnetsu heat therapy is a remarkable unique form of heat treatment from Japan, which has been proven to be very effective in degeneration conditions such as Arthritis. An important factor in maintaining good health is that our inner body temperature remains between 36.5-37 degrees. Any cells or tissues that are unhealthy or injured can become deprived of body heat. Therefore, they can become colder in that area. Often areas of illness and injury are colder than other parts of the body. Onnetsu heat therapy is applied to the cold or injured area to increase the inner body temperature and stimulate the diseased/injured cells to help the area recover health. Onnetsu heat therapy can help promote immune system function and balance the nervous system, as well as promote the flow of blood and lymph which can help lead to optimal health levels. Tim has achieved some sigificant positive outcomes using this form of treatment in a range of spinal and hip related issues. See Testimonials to read more about the benefits of Onnetsu heat therapy. Tim will happily tailor the most effective approach for your dog, and can combine different strategies and treatments to help your much loved pet achieve optimum health and wellbeing.
