"I value Janine's holistic approach to her treatment of my dog and horses, such that she has never failed to get a positve result for them. She has such an understanding way of dealing with animals. I would not hesitate to recommend Whole Herd Therapies services to horse or pet owners, whether it be for injury management or ongoing maintenance for good health. I consider myself lucky that a professional of such high calibre and considerable knowledge is available on the South Coast." Donna S. Denmark WA
“Janine has been working on my horses for 5 years. During this time, I have watched her develop her skills and increase her knowledge to a very high degree. She is now extremely knowledgeable and has a wide array of techniques with which to help my horses, including my somewhat “challenging” mares. Her intuition and feel for the horses is superb. I will continue to ask for her help, because Janine’s work certainly makes a difference.” Lesley T. (Certified Rider Biomechanics coach and Certified Equine Ergonomist), Denmark WA
"Janine has been coming to our house for the last three years to treat our beloved ridgeback dog, Ziggy.
Ziggy lost her front left leg in an accident as a puppy and overtime, as a result, has suffered with arthritis, spinal twisting, muscular aches and injuries from overcompensating and falls.
Janine has used all aspects of her Bowen therapy to improve Ziggys comfort, range of movement and longetivity and has been an integral part of her maintaining the quality of life that she still enjoys despite her disability.
Janine has always shown immense professionalism, genuine empathy and true kindness. Although Ziggy is occasionally uncomfortable during her sessions she always allows Janine to complete her work as she knows it is doing her good and the day after a treatment she is always more comfortable and behaves as if she is a puppy again.
I would recommend Janine to anyone who has a pet who is injured, rehabilitating, ageing or uncomfortable. She has a natural affinity with animals and a magic touch that heals and soothes." Bridget K. Denmark WA
"Janine (Whole herd Therapies) has been treating my horses consistently for the last couple of years with obvious and successful results. My 3* eventer, Max Almighty, after returning from an injury went on to place 3rd with a clear round at Eventing in the Park 2015. My mare Forgetmenot placed 4th in her class, also with a clear round. Never had they been jumping softer or cleaner.
With horses from every discipline and learning level passing through my property, Janine caters to every need individually, and I can always see improvements. Some very happy horses and one very happy rider!" Gabrielle P. Albany WA
"Janine has been treating my horses over 12 months now. I have 3 vastly different horses and her expertise, knowledge and rapore with my horses is second to none. Taz my 20 yr old stock horse is starting to feel the effects of age and so janine has done numerous treatment on him which he loves. She has provided advice on feed additives for joint health in order to sustain Taz as a riding horse as well exercises to keep him supple.
Flynn my 5 yr old warmblood (with a medical history of OCD surgery at 16 months old) has come along way as Janine has seen him through being started under saddle to now where he is in full work and showing absolutely no signs of his past history. I account her regular and thorough treatments to his success.
My newest member of the family Syd is also 5yrs old but only 15hh (in comparison to Flynns 17.1hh) and also a stockhorse. Recently he has had soreness in his back as we increased his work load and Janine was able to provide valuable insight into his saddle fitting (which had only been fitted professionally 3 months earlier) with follow up email and diagrams and pictures of the saddle in order to clearly show the angles in question. His shape had changed remarkably in a relatively short period of time.
I can't forget Lucky, my dog. An aged kelpie/lab cross. She has a range of health issues and now practically parks herself in Janine's lap when she comes,so she doesn't miss out on a treatment too! I, absolutely without a doubt, value Janine as a therapist and a great friend and highly recommend her to everyone." Maxine B. Albany WA
