Welcome to Equican
Equican was set up by Steph Dickson to provide gentle and effective
equine and canine therapy. Steph is a fully qualified and insured animal
physical therapist specialising in animal massage and McTimoney
Based in Gloucester, she travels throughout Gloucestershire and also runs clinics in Tyneside/Northumberland. Steph is willing to travel around England and Wales, but there will be a minimal treatment requirement or fuel charges.
Animals suffer neck, back and musculoskeletal problems, which can cause a loss of mobility, discomfort and a lack of performance. Steph may use one or more therapeutic techniques at her disposal.
The McTimoney approach is a safe and effective, gentle and non-invasive treatment which works to align and balance the musculoskeletal system. The technique is widely used for the treatment of horses and dogs suffering from physical and performance related issues, or simply to ensure continued good health.
All treatment is undertaken only with your Veterinary surgeons consent, by working with them and all of your animals care providers we aim to maximise your animals wellbeing.
When I first got my ex-racehorse, Roko, he was in very poor condition. He needed a lot of help with nutrition and muscle development. Steph helped me with her sympathetic and friendly approach to realign Roko, this helped him develop correctly and evenly into my handsome dressage horse.

Steph has loads of experience with International level competition horses of many disciplines, which gave me great confidence and trust in her abilities as a practitioner. The horses love her treatments, and she appears to make the animals feel at ease and relaxed.
