The action of massage has always been an intuitive healing art based on the human instinct to touch and whose basic principles evolved into a science. Massage as we perceive it today remains anchored by roots laid down centuries ago and remains inspired by the same goals of bringing about harmony and balance through physical and emotional wellbeing. 

As a therapeutic practice, from both a health enhancing as well as a rehabilitative point of view, massage therapy as a discipline has stood the test of time yet is still evolving, embracing developments on the horizon whilst remaining mindful, and respectful of the past.

My name is Sarah Hancox and I am a canine Galen Myotherapist© and lecturer. Whilst education kept me busy enough, I have found that working with dogs restores a more mindful approach; its one-to-one focus on healing provides the perfect foil to lecturing, which I have done for over 20 years.

Since moving to the Peak District my dogs and surroundings have become my greatest source of inspiration. Landscape; the colours and scents of the changing seasons, textures and patterns of the moorlands; sights and sounds of local birds and wildlife are always inspirational; I am always short of time when it comes to expanding my practice, but a walk with my beloved lurchers always provides an opportunity to re-evaluate my priorities.

You will find Moorland Canine on the usual social media channels and the News area of the website will be updated with information and articles relating to canine health, wellbeing and news from the Galen Therapy Centre, where I underwent my training and am proud to be part of their team of Galen Myotherapists©.

I’m keen to collaborate with practitioners of other physical therapy modalities and other canine related services; if you are interested in making contact, just get in touch or find me on LinkedIn.

To contact me directly, just ring 07793 682685 or email me contact@moorlandcanine.com.
