Hello, my name is Rachael Reid and I live in Camborne Cornwall, with my partner Mike and our 3 collies Ollie, Tilly and Indy. I’ve owned dogs for 20 years, have competed in agility for 18 years and have tried my hand at Hoopers and Flyball.


Why Canine Massage?

I first came across Canine Massage in 2013 when Ollie had a free muscular health check from a guild member at an agility show, as he seemed uncomfortable when jumping and had knocked several jump poles. Ollie went on to have 3 full massage sessions and I was astounded by the improvements that I saw, so much so, that I signed up for a one day massage course run by the Canine Massage Therapy Centre. I didn’t need any further convincing that massage has huge benefits for dogs – I was hooked! Having seen first-hand with Ollie, the improvements I could make with this small amount of knowledge, I realised that I wanted to be able to help other dogs as well, and have since completed the 2 year Clinical Canine Massage Practitioners Course.


I feel very lucky to be able to work with dogs, helping to improve their flexibility, movement and overall quality of life.



I have trained for 2 years with Natalie Lenton of the Canine Massage Therapy Centre and passed the Clinical Canine Massage Practitioners course, which is externally accredited by LANTRA. This course covered over 800 hours of learning including modules in Canine Anatomy & Physiology, Gait & Posture Analysis, Muscular Origins/Insertions/Actions, Soft Tissue Injuries, Orthopaedic Conditions, Joint Disease,  Skin Problems, Cardiovascular & Lymphatic Issues & Disease, Neurological Conditions, Advanced Palpation Skills, Client Care and Clinician Skills, as well as intensive residential hands on sessions and case studies.

I am a fully insured with Balens, and a member of the Canine Massage Guild which requires me to  complete 25 hours of Continual Professional Development (CPD) training each year.

Results you can see and your dog can feel
