Animals respond really well to natural therapies, they have no preconceived ideas and they don't try to block the effects of treatment like people can sometimes do sub-consciously.
The beauty of animals is that they don't think about whether the therapy is going to help or not, there is no placebo effect with them!

What Our Clients Are Saying …


Roy Boy - Staffordshire Bull Terrier

“ We are very grateful for the care and relief Helen has given our Staffy Roy Boy. After his first session he was a much happier old man. It’s hard to describe but his energy lifted, he moved better and he is so much more comfortable within himself. Not just for the seniors. Great for alignment and injury prevention for our 10mth old Frenchie Theodore. Highly recommend ✔️ ”

staffordshire terrier

Squishy - Staffordshire Bull Terrier

“Can't recommend Helen enough!  Took my girl Squishy to her a couple of weeks ago Helen was amazing with her, very gentle and knowledgeable. My girl ended up having a dislocated hip due to bad hip dysplasia which we only found out yesterday after X-rays. But even after having only 1 session with Helen she has still continued to check in to see how Squish was doing and provided helpful ongoing information regarding natural treatments to help her before she is able to have surgery. Helen clearly has great love and devotion for all 4 legged furry friends ❤❤ ”

rotweiler cross

Tori - Rotweiler x

“ I can’t thank Helen enough for helping my 14 yr old Rottweiler x Tori. She was unable to stand upright without assistance and was severely struggling to walk (was not able to take more than a few steps with out falling over). Tori had been spending her days laying on her bed only getting up (with assistance) when needing to relieve herself. After just 1 session with Helen, Tori has been able to not only stand up on her own but has also been enjoying little walks around the yard (she has even gone out to greet the postman).
Cannot wait to see what results will be achieved with ongoing treatment from Helen!”

Ty - Ridgeback x

“My pup Ty has an inoperable growth on his head that was affecting his neck and jaw.

Regular treatments keeps him happy, and when he's with Helen we cease to exist as he laps up her care and attention.
Confident to say we'll be clients for life. Thank you for your expertise and skill Helen!”

Kelly - Australian Kelpie

“ This has been amazing for my Kelpie. When I first took her to Helen she could hardly walk, cried when she got up in the morning to hobble over to her food, I had to carry her up the stairs, lift her into the car etc, I was sure the Green Dream wasn’t too far away! The vet’s last resort was cortisone injections so I took her to Helen instead! However after 4 sessions of Bowen Therapy, golden paste, bone broth, hempseed oil and lots of swimming she is like a new dog! She is moving well, runs up the stairs now, chases my other Kelpie around again and is so much happier! Thank you Helen, you are a miracle worker xx ”

Laci - Domestic Shorthair Cat

“I can't speak highly enough of Helen! My cat was in quite a lot of leg pain after undergoing some veterinary treatment. I was unsure where to turn and when I came across Helen she was definitely the answer I was looking for. She was able to identify the issue and her calm manner kept my cat relaxed during treatment. I saw results within a few days and after a second treatment the results spoke for themselves.
Highly recommended!”

Rim - Afghan

“Can't thank Helen enough. I went to Curly Tails Bowen after my dogs were in an accident. My Dachshunds loved her but my Afghan gave himself totally over to her and that's saying something (he's very fussy on who he likes).
Helen thank you so much for helping my dogs.”

Benji - Basenji

“I cannot thank Helen from Curly Tails Bowen, enough for mending my 12 year old Basenji. Benji unfortunately had badly hurt his back and neck and was suffering for weeks and weeks. He struggled to get on the couch and winced in pain when he moved his neck. After a couple of Bowen therapy sessions with Helen, he’s a completely different dog. Frisky and acting like a puppy again, running around with the other dogs and being cheeky.
I can’t recommend Helen enough, thank you for bringing my dearly loved champion show dog back!”
