Wellness Canine Massage provides therapeutic massage services to dogs for pain relief, arthritis, surgery aftercare, anxiety and general wellbeing.

These professional services are offered to Coffs Harbour and surrounding suburbs, in your own home, where your dog is most comfortable. 

My treatments are not a substitute for traditional veterinary care.  Customers will be asked to confirm that their dog is under the regular care of a veterinarian and I may require a veterinary referral.

After assessing your dog, I will formulate a treatment plan which will usually combine a number of the following treatments to improve the well being of your dog. 

Canine Myofunctional Therapy (Massage)

Canine Myofunctional Therapy is a form of therapeutic, remedial massage for dogs.  It is a combination of techniques including Swedish massage, stretching, myofascial release and Gua Sha massage and acupressure. 

Animal Neuro-Myofascial Release

The aim of this technique is to identify and rectify areas of dysfunction.  It aims to restore communication between spinals segments and the brain and releases associated soft tissues and allows the body to re-set the affected joint. 

Kinesiology Taping

Through the application of a thin, cotton based, non allergenic tape (kinesio), we can treat a wide variety of injuries and conditions and provide dynamic support to muscles and joints. 


An ancient energy healing technique which can help heal nervous, injured or anxious pets.   Reiki uses non invasive gentle touch or even hands off to clear and clarify the energy pathways in your pet.   

General pet care and advice

As an experience Veterinary Nurse, certified in Fear Free techniques, Vanessa can provide other services including pedicures, anal gland expression and general (non veterinary) advice such as nutrition and preventative pet care.
