The animal welfare charity received 1.3 million calls in 2011, a 13% rise on the previous year.
However, fortunately, there are people out there who give their pets the love and care they deserve.
There has been a strong increase in the number of animals being brought to Bowen therapists across the country.
That’s right, the Bowen technique doesn’t only work on us humans!
Dogs and horses respond particularly well to the treatment, aiding any muscular or seasonal problems they may have.
It works wonderfully in helping animals relax and can just be a nice calming treat for them.
We’re finding that people who have never had a Bowen treatment themselves are bringing their pets to try the technique.
The practitioner makes small, rolling movements over muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue at precise points, using only the amount of pressure appropriate for the animal.
No hard-tissue manipulation or force is needed or used.
Between each set of moves, your pet can rest for a few minutes, to allow them to absorb the information they have received and initiate any healing processes.
