Had the absolute pleasure of meeting and working with this little fellow today. Meet Percy, a young pig at the National Animal Welfare Trust. Such a character, he is a little star!

When I arrived within 2 minutes he managed to undo the clasps on my case! So very clever. He enjoyed selecting dried herbs and floral waters. His favourite was rosehip shells, plus barley grass and wheatgrass powders. He also enjoyed sniffing various floral waters sprayed onto a blanket.

Adorable little chap.

Dog owners please be aware of the UK laws for driving with dogs in the car.

I always use a dog seat belt clipped to Amber's harness on the back seat. I also keep it short enough to stop her falling off the seat in case of a sudden stop. Seating your dog on the back seat also avoids the risk of the dog hurtling forward into the windscreen in an emergency stop. Stay safe!

It was a pleasure giving Rosie her follow-up canine merishia massage today as one of my case studies.

She has a problem with her hind stifle (knee joint) causing compensatory muscle issues elsewhere. The Merishia massage complements her regular hydrotherapy and physio by easing tension and loosening up areas of tightness and muscle spasms.

Her owners tell me that she is more relaxed and sleeps well afterwards, and then has lots more energy. Such a sweet natured girl, a real delight to work with.

A happy new year to all our customers and followers!

The ANT blog has been rather quiet these last few months. This is partly due to my training in Canine Merishia Massage. Just one module to go before I am fully qualified and can start offering this service. Coming soon so watch this space!

January is a cold and quiet month after the festive season, and our energies can slump. This can also be true for our pets. Reiki healing can help recharge and rejuvenate your energy. So why not book a Reiki healing session both for yourself and your pets. I can include both in one appointment, so contact me for details.

Your animals can also benefit from an Animal Herbal choices session. There are nutritional herbal powders that are packed full of vitamins and minerals that can give your pet a boost. An Animal Herbal Choices session allows your pet to indicate which powders they prefer using their natural ability to self-select. I will explain how this wonderful method works during a consultation, so contact me to enquire.

I am also planning more talks and workshops later in the year and will announce these in due course.

Wishing you and your animals a happy and healthy 2019!

Learn about herbal remedies and self-selection for pets with animal therapist Rita Lymboura.

Rita will be explaining how animals self-select plants for their well-being by a process called applied zoopharmacognosy. This behaviour-led method can aid animals on both a physical and emotional level.

Using a variety of herbal extracts including powders, floral waters, infused and essential oils, Rita will explain how to offer them safely to benefit your pets at home.
