We have two older labradors and Nicky has given them a new lease of life. The first time they received treatment, it felt like they had drank from the fountain of youth. It was absolutely amazing. The youngest of the two found his puppy streak back, and the oldest decided there was more to life than sleeping in front of the fire. He might not be back to springy puppy, but he is off having adventures around the house again, and causing all sorts of mayhem. Nicky has a natural rapport with our dogs which is delightful to see. From a human perspective, Nicky is a joy to work with, she has a great personality , is a strong communicator, and it’s obvious that the well-being of your dogs is her highest priority.

Nicky  has been treating Luke our labrador for several years. I honestly think Luke would leave us and happily live with Nicky. Even though she has to massage his aches and pains he has total trust in her, and with a bit of wriggling, allows her to treat him. Nicky’s expertise and skilful treatment of Luke has enabled him to have excellent mobility, less pain, and much better joint health. We highly recommend Nicky, but I don’t think Luke would, as he doesn’t like to share!

I was so upset to see my dog suffering so. Shaking with pain, unable to walk properly and not eating. The vets had finally diagnosed that he had a slipped disk in his back and prescribed drugs which completely knocked him out and still he would not eat. Their next step was to be surgery. I contacted Nicky who came to our house and gave Dino his first treatment. What a transformation! He was soon back on his feet and eating again. He came off all medication and hasn’t been on it since. With each session we saw more improvement and now he is back to his old self. Nicky is so personable and knowledgeable and the treatment is very gentle. Dino greets her like an old friend, lies down next to her and drifts into a wonderfully relaxed state. I cannot recommend Nicky highly enough.

Nicky instantly put my nervous dog at ease with her approach. He really isn’t a fan of going to the vets, so having Nicky come to our home to treat him made a world of difference. Nicky was extremely thorough with her questioning and observations, and was able to treat our dog on a weekly basis for a couple of months, which was a huge relief; as our vet had suggested surgery for his back! Our dog absolutely loved his treatments with Nicky and was putty in her hands! Thank You so much Nicky for your support and help with Bertie. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nicky, she has such a wonderful talent.

Charlie suffers with arthritis in  his spine and hips and has mobility issues now he is a dear old boy, Nicky has visited 3 times so far and after each time Charlie has some more movement for a while and seems happier. The benefits last longer following each treatment. Nicky is calm, friendly and at ease with Charlie. She obviously has a natural affinity with animals. He relaxes during the treatment session and afterwards. I also like the fact that it is not a big up front payment before you know whether it is going to work. It’s a reasonable rate for each session and they can be as often as you can afford. Nicky doesn’t apply pressure to rebook although I believe you would want to as the benefits are a joy to see. The fact that Nicky makes home visits is another bonus for us, as Charlie travels less well in the car now he is older. I would thoroughly recommend Nicky and her treatments. I’m so glad she was recommended to me.

Nicky has improved the lives of both our dogs significantly with her gentle treatment. This is particularly beneficial to our older dog who is otherwise in quite a lot of pain. Highly recommend.
