Injuries to her own dogs and mentoring help from Caroline Zuber, previously of Animal Ark, has meant that Roz first studied Canine Massage and followed up that study with a high level qualifiction in Human Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy.

Roz also runs courses on canine fitness and conditioning and works with elite canine performance dogs as well as her many other canine clients, young and old.

Roz believes that muscle therapy is a valuable part of a team approach when a dog  has soft tissue injuries, recovering  from orthopaedic surgery or is in need of general muscle maintenance.

Tim Clay, Reiki Master

Tim Clay is our resident Reiki therapist who carries out treatment sessions at Animal Ark.

Tim first became interested in energy healing while he was studying Tai Chi Chuan. On seeing the possibilities he decided to pursue it in more depth and studied Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki, the most traditional form of Reiki. Tim completed his 3rd Degree or Master’s qualification in August 2015. He has subsequently also studied Shamanic Reiki and it was this that lead to him working with and treating animals.

Reiki is a popular treatment for humans but  Tim demonstrates  that  Reiki can also be used with animals, and animals tend to love it. Reiki can help animals in the same ways it helps humans: to balance and nourish the physical body, and to balance mental and emotional energy. Reiki is particularly effective in helping animals who have been traumatised, or who are experiencing physical or behavioural difficulties. It is also used to promote healing after surgery and other medical procedures.

What people say about Tim:

Tim’s ability to work with animals is truly magical – The first time he gave my rat Ash Reiki for his arthritis, I was amazed to see him settle down between Tim’s hands and close his eyes in utter bliss! Afterwards Ash was definitely more mobile and relaxed.  Ash continues to enjoy “top up” sessions with Tim, and eagerly lies down for his treatment every time. Thanks Tim!

Tim’s ability to calm and relax animals is really good. He held my royal python for around 10 minutes and she really seemed to calm down and chill out. She coiled in his hands and was happy to sit with him peacefully.   He was confident and gentle in his approach. Many thanks. H. Scragg.
