Juliet's skill and experience

Working with people first, allowed Juliet to sensitise her hands and to refine her treatment techniques. She has also developed a keen eye for seeing subtle movement abnormalities. This experience is invaluable and allows her to be very sensitive to the identification and treatment of problems in animals. They are often far more sensitive than humans, therefore an experienced, gentle and re-assuring touch is needed.
