Animals respond really well to holistic 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 and you can see results!


Curly Tails Bowen and Animal Therapy would love your feedback if you are a client.


What Our Clients Are Saying …

Wow am i grateful from the minute I arrived I felt relaxed Helen was so inviting and asked lots of questions in such a beautiful manner. My dog Daisy got hit by a car 2 days ago and I can’t believe how amazing it was to watch Helen work on Daisy she knew exactly where she was sore with precise movements and her gentle manner I started to relax especially when I was seeing first hand Daisy respond to Helen’s touch . Daisy relaxed and took to treatment like a wee queen . I am ever so grateful to Helen thank you from the bottom of my heart you are amazing - Lesley, 2024

Helen is amazing, she took her time and listened about an incident that happened that cause me to bring Carter in, she found all his sore spots and was kind and gentle with him throughout the treatment, he walked out of there much happier and much less sore then when he came in. - Emily, 2024

My 13r yr old Addisonian pugalier has been seeing Helen for a few months now. Helen is amazing! Without the Bowen and laser sessions I'm not sure where we would be as Layla had declined so much in a short amount of time. Since the sessions began not only has our puggy got allot more movement in her legs / joints, she is now jumping up and running, we have seen a massive improvement of her overall health - reduced oily buildups on her skin/fur, digestive improvements, mood improvements, the list goes on... Highly recommend for anyone with an ageing doggy, injured or ill doggy, or looking for preventative treatments. Helen is extremely knowledgeable. Love our visits and so does Layla. - Jaimie - 2024

After one of my Pointers suffered an acute spinal injury which left her unable to use her hindquarters, a friend suggested Helen at Curly Tails. Within a couple of days a dog chiropractor had her able to walk but the soft tissue, ligaments, muscles and fascia were very tight and knotted. Helen was instrumental in relieving the tension and pain and regaining movement and control over her body. By the 3rd visit, she walked out like nothing had ever happened. I now use Curly Tails Bowen Therapy for both my 11yo Pointers as a preventative treatment to keep them in tip top shape. And the best thing is that they both love going to see Helen. They both sleep the rest of the day. Thank you so much for always finding the time to see us. - Sue 2023

Oh my goodness words cannot express just how grateful I am to Helen!! I’m here on holidays on the Peninsula and my little 12 yr old fur boy got injured last night. I rang Helen this morning and she went above and beyond and was so accommodating to fit us in today to help his pain. My boy loved Helen, loved his treatment with her and now is sound asleep on the couch healing. He barely slept last night and not at all today his pain had made him so uncomfortable.
Helen was so kind, caring, gentle and knowledgeable. I highly recommend anyone who has a dog or cat with aches and pains goes and sees Helen!! - Jenny 2024

Thank you for the excellent work you’re doing with my dogs Harold and Delilah. They get so excited when they arrive and follow Helen around for the whole session, and are exhausted in the car on the way home! Delilah’s confidence is slowly growing, and it’s so lovely to see her coming out of her shell - Jackie 2024

Helen is absolutely fantastic with our dogs. The skills & knowledge that she has is amazing. Helen has helped our dogs tremendously. She is so kind & our dogs absolutely adore her & are always so excited for their appointments. We are truly very grateful to you Helen. You are amazing.- Michelle 2024

Billie had been pulling up sore after running and wrestling play so I booked in with Helen on a bit of a whim and I’m super glad I did. Two sessions in and Helen’s gentle hands and good advice has my girl feeling noticeably better already! - Jess 2024

Helen has a calm and caring manner that settled Lotti who was a little nervous. By the end of treatment she was relaxed and showed improvement after a sleep Thanks Helen - Andrew 2024

Jackson 12 years old loved his session with Helen healing hands he now has a spring in his step as he trotts along on his walks - Narelle 2024

My Labs just love Helen, her gentle manner, experienced hands, they relax immediately. Roscoe comes home after treatment, more comfortable and less anxious. - Shirley 2024

Bacchus (8yr old American Staffy Cross) recently diagnosed with ‘a severe lumbo-sacral spondylitic lesion’ - our first treatment has gone well. Helen provided an expert helpful treatment - which I do think is helping Baccie come right. Thankyou.
Our Second Appt. Went Well and Bacchus is improving - it is a slow process but preferrable to an operation if it can be avoided - we will be back. Thank you Helen.- Sarah 2024

I was super skeptical about Bowen Therapy. I had never heard of it before and had no idea what to really expect. My little 3 year old Frenchie had been completely paralysed from a collapsed disc in his neck. We had nursed him back to what we thought was as good as he was going to be and then a friend suggested Helen to us and gave rave reviews. So, I had to give it a go.
What a difference it has made. Helen is amazing with my precious boy. He now seems so much happier and can move so much better. He is back to playing properly with our other frenchie and is back to his zoomy times. Full of life again and cheeky as ever. Thank you so much. - Tash 2023

Sometimes you need to think outside the box, Jake has had on and off again front leg and back soreness, been to the vet on numerous occasions and would get an anti inflammatory and put on rest which he would always bounce back from but the issue was never actually fixed, more of a bandaid solution.
After seeing Helen a couple of times he’s moving around much more freely and the issues have been tended to and healing well
Thank you Helen from not only Jake but Bear and myself too, you’ve helped them both so much. - Meagan, 2023

My Mini schnauzer Ebony who is 11.5 yo had extremely tense back muscle issues and had hurt her back leg but after treatment with Helen at Curly Tails therapy after 4 laser and Bowen therapy treatments and amended diet to slim her waistline she is now walking brilliantly no pain and is extremely energetic and playful with her favourite toys again - Thank you is not enough to say for the great results of your work on Ebony Helen and we look forward to continuing with maintenance support for my ageing girl to help keep her in top condition and enjoying her walks and life. - Thank you from Dianne and Ebony 2023

Helen you are ‘Magic Fingers’ !!
Thanks to your healing hands my bearded collies have never looked and shown so good.
Everyone comments on how good my boy moves in the show ring and a big part of that is how you help keep him feeling his best. All my dogs love you, such a kind, knowledgeable person.
I know my dogs are in safe hands with you and you help make them shine.
Since I’ve been coming to you Hugo is unbeaten at breed level and was shortlisted in Top 8 at The 2022 Royal Melbourne Show. I am so grateful you came into my dogs life xx - Renee, 2022

Pia, our 16 month old border collie, was hit by a car a month ago. After 2 sessions with Helen, she has bounced back & in playful form again. I was amused to see how delighted Pia was to have treatments with Helen, she loved it! Just like us when we get a treatment or a massage, we’re delighted! Thank you for your calm care Helen - Linda - 2023

Helen is an absolute gem who went above and beyond to help Fudge in his time of need.
From not being able to walk for three weeks to running around after two sessions. We couldn’t thank her enough. - Sarah, 2023

We are so grateful and extremely thankful for Helen and her caring therapy she is giving our our Piper who suffers Scottie cramp….we have seen a definite improvement in Piper….she really enjoys her visits to Helen….she is so relaxed and happy……and the special treats are a wonderful addition . . . many thanks Helen. - Susie and Mickey, 2023

Boris the Borzoi is so relaxed with Helen, I can almost see him lying back sipping a martini and smoking a sobraine. A true Russian Aristocrat. He adores Helen and is responding well to her treatment. Very happy. - Faye 2023

Helen is amazing! She goes above and beyond in her treatments on Marlie and very knowledgeable on advice for diet and supplements.
Marlie is accident prone and Helen has been a lifesaver for her! - Renae, 2023

Marley (our golden retriever) is so relaxed and obedient with Helen. The treatment works wonders for Marley's ongoing issues. I thoroughly recommend Helen' Bowen therapy. - Carmel, 2023

My dogs think the world of Helen and line up for their turn to be treated by her, constantly trying to push each other out the way to be next! Helen has a lovely calm way with the dogs and we all look forward to our monthly visits which keep them looking and moving the best they can be. Both the Beardies are BEST In SHOW winners and I attribute much of their success to Helen keeping them in tip top shape. I cannot recommend her enough. - Renee

We’ve had a lot of recommendations from other Samoyed owners and initially came to Helen as Butter played too rough and had a slight limp. With our appointment we realised he also had other issues, such as out of place hock and mid back soreness. Helen was knowledgeable, friendly and gentle and her treatments have been doing wonders for him. He loves going to see her and will continue to go for maintenance! Highly recommend! - Thuong - Dec 2023

The first time experience for owner and pet alike was of the highest standard. Calm, informative & friendly. Thanks Helen! See you again. - Liz - Dec 2023

Helen is wonderful at treating our dogs Maggie and Franky. The regular maintenance they have gives a peace of mind that they are in good health ready to live their best lives. - Hayley - 2023

Helen is amazing and caring. She truly loves her work and cares for all puppies under her care. Charlie jumps out of the car and straight into her treatment room without any problems. Helen is certainly his favourite. - Anne, 2023

As always Bart and Angus loved their treatments. Both soundly sleeping now. Even our rescue Benson was calm on his first visit to say hello to Helen. The therapy works,wonders for our boys, Helen is so good with all ailments. - Lesley, 2023

We took our old dog for a overhaul today, first time visit. Helen was fabulous, so kind and thoughtful throughout the whole consultation, Sarge loved the experience, and I can see benefits already! - Jenny, 2023

Awesome lady really knows her stuff, you know she is doing your dog good, when he wants to go there. Thanks so much Helen for looking after Nugget. - John, 2023

We love our monthly tuneups with Auntie Helen She keeps us in tip top shape and sorts out any sore spots with her loving gentle treatments Thank you. - Samoyeds Of The Peninsula, 2023

The dogs once again loved their session even young Duke who was unsure at the beginning after a rough start to his week being attacked twice. Queenie feels amazing after her surgery and Miss Molly says kisses - Kelly, 2023

Ollie’s health has improved in so many ways since having Bowen Therapy.
No more tummy upsets and has stopped chewing on his legs when he wakes up in the morning.
He’s not as stiff from his arthritis any more.
I highly recommend Curly Tails Bowen Therapy. - Kim, 2023

So glad to have booked in with Helen, she is amazing with dogs and Venus took no time at all in feeling comfortable in her presence, which is a huge plus for us as she can sometimes be nervous with new environments and people.
I now think she’d love to move in if she could haha.
Thanks for helping keep Venus in the best shape when she forgets she isn’t a young dog anymore! - Jessica, 2023

So happy we found Helen! She has treated my boy Cooper to help him with a ruptured ACL as he cannot have surgery due to other health problems. Cooper has responded so well to Helen which is amazing as he can be anxious meeting new people. He is so relaxed and sleepy after the treatment and gentle Bowen as well as cold laser is helping him.- Lisa, 2023

Helen has helped Mila through pre and post TPLO surgery. My dog is so relaxed and happy to see her. Can't recommend Helen enough. Look forward to continuing treatments. - Carolyn, 2023

I can’t recommend Helen and Curly Tails Bowen highly enough. Helen is incredibly caring and knowledgeable. Franklin is a better dog for his time spent at Curly Tails. Helen has personally taken time away from her much deserved holidays to treat Franklin whilst he was unwell. Franklin is always happy to arrive and visit Helen. Franklin would not be the dog he is today without Helen’s amazing care. - Kate & Franklin, 2023

I have been bringing my dogs to Helen for years now. She is currently treating my 3rd dog for a mishap at home which resulted in a limp and for Coopers ongoing anxiety. Helen is fantastic, I highly recommend! - Jo, 2023

Helen is simply amazing with our two fur babies and is able to pinpoint exactly where their issues are.
Her skill, knowledge and the way she interacts with our dogs is second to none.
We are so thankful we found Helen and grateful for the way she cares about our babies. - Andrea, 2023

It’s so easy to think we’re doing the right thing going to the vet, but when it’s a continuous issue like Jakes and Bears, you realise it’s just a bandaid and you need to explore further options.
What you have done for both of my boys is life changing for them and they get to live their senior lives comfortably without being on harsh medications.
We’ll see you next time they do something silly - Meagan, 2023

My now, 15 year old Kelpie, first came to Helen in 2019 when she could hardly walk & over the years Helen has treated her with all the tricks in her box, food supplements, laser therapy etc and Kelly is doing really well for an old girl, running & swimming at the beach and still chasing brooms, rakes, blowers etc like a young dog. She would not be with me today if not for Helen’s amazing care! Today I took my other 2 kelpies for a tune up as well, 12 year old Stormy & 3 year old Red. Helen performed her miracles on all of them, Red especially loved it as he hurt something and has been limping for a week or so but he will be fine now, thanks to Helen! You are the best Helen, we all love you xxx Jodie 2023

I can't recommend Helen highly enough. She is so knowledgable and helpful. Tito loves her and walks out a much happier dog. - Uta 2023

Bessie my 16 year old Staffy/JR cross has been seeing Helen over the last year and Bessie is still continuing to do little walks & manage her arthritis. Helen is very caring and compassionate and the ongoing support of the Bowen therapy has definitely helped. Thanks Helen ! From Andrea & Bessie 2023

Helen has been great with my 3 beardies and they are relaxed and happy during treatment. Helen keeps them in tip top shape! Kelly 2023

My dogs have been seeing Helen for over 3 years now, she’s amazing with them and keeps them fit & healthy.
My frenchies absolutely love seeing her. - Zoe, 2023

Sunnie was limping, yelping if we touched her back leg and vets had suggested xrays for what seemed to be a soft tissue injury.
Helen worked her magic and Sunnie is back to her usual, tearing around madly, self! - Sharon, 2023

Bart the boxer walks away from his sessions pain free, aches relieved and sleepy.
He loves Helen's gentle therapy.
Helen has treated a couple of our dogs and she is 11/10 - Lesley, 2023

Helen is amazing, She has helped my border collie who has had a broken rear leg to heal and also my great dane who had issues with his legs and back.
She is definitely worth visiting with your pooch to assist them with pain management. - Arnie, 2023

My 12yo staffy landed oddly when he jumped off the bed.
I booked him in straight away for the first available appointment. He walked out of there back to his normal self, Helen does an amazing job!! - Meagan, 2023

My toy poodle Eva was hit by a car which resulted in nerve damage to her front right leg and a left femoral head ostectomy. Eva's dog groomer recommended Helen's Bowen, red light and laser therapy would be helpful to Eva to regain some mobility.
I found Helen to be very professional, focussed, assured and reassuring.
After the initial appointment, I feel assured Helen will be able to help Eva's mobility with further treatment and well worth the 250km round trip.
I will update on progress after follow-up treatments. - Robert 2023

My Bailey, a beautiful Lab Retriever breed loves going for his Bowen & Laser treatment at Helen's. I am so grateful that I have found her.
She is a good listener, a compassionate and caring professional. And most importantly I am seeing improvements in Bailey's movements.
Helen has also recommended a few natural products for him for his Hip-dysplasia and Collapsing Trachea condition.
I highly recommend Helen and I thank her from the bottom of my heart as I know she is making Bailey's golden years easier living for him :) - Angela, 2023

So happy to find someone who knows what they are doing! Caesar and Austin are in love with Helen they told me they are looking forward to their next visit!! Thanks Helen really appreciate everything you have done so far xx - Karen, 2023

Thanks Helen for doing a great job once again with Kara and Indi.
This is the most relaxed Ive seen Kara, she has come a long way with letting you work on her.
Even allowing you to do cold laser and red light treatment for her arthritic back legs. They love their treatments with you and get excited when they know we are there!
Your treatment room is a place of calm and healing. - Val, 2023

This is the best thing we have done for our Boba!
He is much better with his arthritis , going for a walk again and enjoying his sessions with Helen.
Thank you very much - Kate, 2023

border collie x

Lily - Border Collie x Kelpie x Lab

“Hey Helen, thank you so much for the care and treatments you gave my beautiful girl Lily. She's my 15 (nearly 16) year old kelpie x lab fur baby. I was contemplating having to put her down due to her decreased ability to use her back legs and mobility issues, making her going to the toilet fraught with disaster because she couldn't hover on her own to finish the task. I had to scoop a towel under her waist and support her
so she wouldn't just fall over into her own mess. It was heartbreaking to see and I shed quite a few tears over it.
But after your 3 weekly then 2 fortnightly/three week treatments using red light therapy and cold laser therapy plus your talented massage and Bowen Techniques, I have my old girl back. She bounds around like a puppy full of strength. Even the vet when she had her nails trimmed was astounded at her comeback. You are brilliant at what you do, and I can't believe what you've achieved with my much loved Doggo. She's nearly 16 and I'm confident she'll get there and beyond now!! Thank you so much Helen.”

“Last week we took our 2 Mini Schnauzers to see Helen at Curly Tails Bowen Therapy, our little girl Abby hasn’t been sleeping well for over a month after having dental done, after 1 appointment with Helen she has slept 5 nights in a row and counting! She is up and about more and also playing more. Our little man Opie has a sore/stiff hind leg and is very wary of a lot of people, but he does enjoy his appointments with Helen, and his leg and general well-being have also improved. We couldn’t recommend Helen highly enough for her caring and gentle service with our dogs and look forward to seeing her again soon. ”

“ My older dogs love coming to Curly Tails for their Bowen Therapy treatments. Polly was reluctant to engage in her first couple of sessions but now sits and eyeballs Helen to say “Come on let's get going!”. Jasper almost falls asleep standing up while he is being worked on. The laser treatments have greatly increased Polly's mobility in her lower back too. I wish Helen could also work on me!!”

Crystal - Samoyed

“ I recently took my 8yo girl Crystal to see Helen about coping with grief as we had recently lost her brother and Crystal was so sad. Watching the way Helen works with the dogs is so inspiring. Helen is so patient and worked at Crystal's pace, never pushing or rushing her. What I wasn't expecting was Helen to identify an issue in her shoulder that I didn't know that she had. This gave me the information I needed to be more aware of Crystal's movements and to stop her from doing things that will aggravate her shoulder. It took a few days for the treatment to integrate but I soon noticed that she is moving more freely. We have scheduled another appointment to make sure everything is fine but I will be making regular appointments to keep Crystal in top condition. Helen is incredible at reading her dog clients and adjusting her methods to make them as comfortable as possible. Crystal totally loved the experience, especially the treats lol.
I highly recommend Curly Tails Bowen Therapy to all!!   ”

Lotte - Schnauzer x Border Collie

“️ We are so lucky to have Helen on the Mornington Peninsula Her love for animals and their well being is evident the minute you meet her. She is a practitioner in both Emmett and Bowen therapy and combines the best of both to treat your fur babies. Lotte is a schnauzer x border collie and suffering arthritis in her joints, but at 12.5 yo really doesn’t have any other problems. Helens treatment is calm, reassuring and aimed at giving her more movement and less pain and Lotte responds well to each movement although she is known to lie down with belly up and all 4 legs in the air on occasion...that’s Lotte, not Helen! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Helen to anyone with a fur baby that has any problems ❤️”

I would never trust anyone other than Helen to treat my girl. I would recommend her a million times over. Not only as a health practitioner for my girl but an amazing person ❤️”

Samoyed & Jack Russell

“A couple of days before a dog show about 2 years ago Tess suddenly started limping, I saw Curly Tails helping one of our groomers dogs, so I quickly made an appointment. Tess responded so well to the treatment that I then booked in my older dogs for a treatment. Tess was Helen's first Samoyed, now following our recommendations, she has quite a contingent of Samoyeds who enjoy regular tune ups, our girl Lily even gets involved assisting during the treatments, by leaning her head on the back of the dog being worked on. Helen is incredibly kind and caring, and has amazing rapport with all the dogs. My old Jack Russell gained incredible relief in his last few months, as did my neighbours Samoyed when she was getting old. We have a regular monthly booking and the dogs love their treatments, sleep for the rest of the day and have an amazing zest for life. Highly recommended for every dog.. young or old, its great to keep them in their peak...
Perfect for injury recovery, stress, and general well being”

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).

Phoebe, Kara & Indi - Jack Russell & Samoyeds

“”My elderly Jack Russell had a suspected cruciate ligament rupture and we decided not to have it operated on due to her age. A friend recommended Curly Tails Bowen Therapy and I took Phoebe for treatment. Phoebe now walks without limping and has regular treatments with Helen to keep her comfortable. Phoebe loves the attention and treats when she goes to see Helen. Kara and Indi, both Samoyeds, also have treatments with Helen. Kara's back seemed quite painful with the first couple of treatments and she was often grumpy, I've noticed since then Kara is easier going, moves around better and is less sensitive to being touched. It seems Kara may have been silently suffering in pain. I'm so glad I took her to Helen. Indi who recently came to live with us, and who was getting treatments with her other wolfpack, continues to enjoy her tune ups with Helen. Helen has a gift for working with dogs and is extremely talented. We trust her healing abilities to bring quality of life and ease of movement as our dogs age.

“ 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 ”

Not only were you able to win Abby’s trust, you had her walking and smiling within minutes. Here’s to treating our animals the way we treat ourselves. ”

Chewy - Parson Russell Terrier puppy

“ Our poor puppy got stood on badly whilst there were no breaks he had a bad limp and we wanted to support his recovery and ensure his soft tissues, ligaments were OK. Helen was able to assure us there was no permanent injury and after his session Chewy’s gait had improved was more fluid and not erratic. We are so relieved after our visit and really recommend Helen as a great caring therapist that gave us confidence and some good tips to suppport his recovery. So grateful...thanks again Helen!!”

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 (car). 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!”

She has now been clean and dry in the house for weeks after being incontinent for a couple of years and her limp has disappeared.
