Canine Massage Therapist & Licensed CCA Coach

I’m the multi-award winning owner of Safe Hands Clinical Canine Massage and have been providing therapeutic massage to dogs for over 5 years.

Karen Young, Licensed CCA Coach & Canine Massage Therapist in Hertfordshire.

Early on in my massage business I identified that many of my massage clients had poor core musculature and this was often accompanied by back pain and low positional awareness.

I set about researching options to help these clients and, with my science background I was drawn to the CCA Practitioner program.

Having seen incredible changes in body awareness, confidence and reduced back pain with my own dog I now deliver CCA training programs from my Hemel clinic on a one-to-one basis and to organised groups and sports teams at their own training grounds in the Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire areas


“With 4 working spaniels the conditioning programme is pivotal in our day as it helps us keep our dogs in tip top shape and to ensures they remain as injury free as possible. We highly recommend Karen and the work that she does.

Karen was brilliant during the programme, She showed us all exercises and how to do them and adapted them where needed for one of our injured dogs, Rosie. She monitored Rosie’s progress every step of the way making sure she was progressing safely and that the exercises were right for her.

…After the programme her vet said that not only had she made a remarkable and speedy recovery but that she was in better condition than working spaniels half her age!  I cannot recommend her highly enough for your dog”

Jackie & Rosie

“Dino is more aware of his body, and particularly his back end, improving his box turns which are now amazing.

Would definitely recommend this course!”

Kate & Dino

“I cannot recommend the system enough but I can also say that Karen is an awesome support every step.”
