From my cats, to the horses of my local pony club or the cows and dogs from my uncles’ farm, I have always loved animals. Growing up, I was determined to get a job where I could help them. I had witnessed the wonderful things that osteopathy could accomplish on people from being a patient myself. Osteopathy is a holistic manual therapy that works with every system in the body and guides it towards homeostasis. By looking for the primary cause rather than only working on the symptoms, it ensures that the disorder doesn’t come back. After discovering that this therapy also exists for animals, I knew that it was what I wanted to do and it became my focus when I turned 15.
At the age of 19, I moved to England in order to complete a 5 years course at the European School of Animal Osteopathy. I received my diploma in July 2016 after presenting my dissertation on splaylegs in rabbits.
I am now working around Sussex, helping your animals in the comfort of your own home. I work closely with your vet, so we can complement each other to help your pet to get healthy and stay healthy. On the side, I also volunteer for a few rescues when an animal needs manual therapy.
