My name is Ann-Marie Nicholson and after a number of years working as a Secretary, Office Manager and Project Support in the IT industry, I decided to follow my passion to work with dogs and after 18 months of study, I qualified as a Level 4 Canine Remedial Massage & Rehabilitation Therapist with the Institute of Complementary Animal Therapies (ICAT) and OCN London.
