Certificate in Canine Myofunctional Therapy (Professional Dog Massage)

Canine Massage

Help mans best friend with the aid of Canine Myofunctional Therapy – ‘CMT’ (professional dog massage). This course has been designed for all those with a love of dogs and an interest in improving their health and wellbeing with the gentle but powerful therapy of massage. The Founder of the NCTM, Sandi Rogers, developed the therapy and teachings of Canine Myofunctional Therapy for the Australian market. Classes will enable you to understand fundamental principles and the terminology of canine anatomy, physiology and applied techniques. Our dog massage training program is the highest standard delivered within Australia with the highest qualified trainers with many years experience.

The Canine Myofunctional Therapy Course is conducted via blended delivery. Blended delivery is a combination of online training and in class, combining the very best of both worlds in education and training. Webinars are conducted on a weekly basis, having a few breaks to assist you to review and reflect on subjects covered. Practical subjects are delivered over a 4 day intensive period where you will join other students and be guided with our lecturers to massage dogs in a clinical setting. Practical days will be conducted in either Daylesford or Seddon in Victoria.
