Active Balance offers a unique combination of Veterinary Physiotherapy and Tellington TTouch techniques which enables us to offer a wide range of services to assess your canine or equine companions needs and create a program that is unique to them. Aiming to restore, improve or maintain physical and emotional balance. Using kind and effective treatments with the up most respect for your companions.
TTouch offers you a method of educating your animals in a unique way that incorporates the entire body not just the brain. Designed not only to enhance your relationship but also to support your working, athletic or companion animal through times of stress, trauma and problematic behaviours.
Specific observations of your animal's emotional and physical state are key to an effective assessment process. Selective application of Telington TTouch techniques are then used to address and maintain behaviour and good health.
Fear and pain or the memories of these are the two greatest inhibitors to learning. Addressing and removing fear and trauma leaves the animal more trusting, balanced and confident. Enabling the animal to process new information and create a base of self-control to promote thinking beyond mere instinct.
Veterinary Physiotherapy can be used to support animals through times of postoperative care, musculoskeletal impairment and neurological dysfunction, as well as providing maintenance, conditioning and performance enhancement.
A comprehensive knowledge of anatomy and biomechanics with injury and disease physiology allows Active Balance to provide an in depth assessment with an effective treatment and exercise plan to achieve attainable outcome goals.
Treatment techniques can be used to reduce pain, rehabilitate movement and function, improve quality of life, reduce the risk of injury and elevate overall athletic performance.
