Janine  has always had a strong connection with animals and has worked in the animal health industry for more than 10 years. 


Janine's love for horses started early, with her parents equine links and the arrival of a strong willed pony at age three.  Through the years she has enjoyed riding in a variety of equine pursuits including Eventing, Games, Endurance, Hunting and currently enjoys pleasure riding and the ongoing pursuit of developing great equine partnerships.  

Janine's main interest has been in animal's health and well being and while working as a veterinary nurse she recognised the opportunity to treat animals with a complimentary approach and so began her journey into "whole"-istic treatments.  

While exploring equine bodywork techniques, Janine had a personal experience with Bowen Therapy, it made a lasting impression on her health and well being.   It was then knew she had found a modality that was powerful, yet gentle and non invasive and was inspired to study and complete training with SMART Bowen International College of Bowen Therapy as an Equine and Small Animal Bowen Therapist.
