Holistic Wellness + Rehabilitation

My name is Dr Jennifer Robinson, I am a qualified veterinarian and certified veterinary acupuncturist. (IVAS) offering veterinary acupuncture, geriatric and palliative care to canine (and feline) patients. 

Acupuncture is a great complementary treatment option for many conditions, like osteoarthritis, geriatric problems, muscle injuries, behaviour problems and many more. 

For geriatric and terminally ill patients, I offer individual pain management plans, home care advice and gentle end of life guidance for the owners and their families (which can be arranged on home visits for very sick/immobile patients).


For existing patients, I also offer home euthanasia. 


I practice locally in Gardenvale at The Dog Wellness Centre, Elwood  at Elwood Vet, Highett  at Dogs in Motion and Somerville at Aquapaws on different days of the week and for those working day time hours, I have appointments available on Monday nights and Saturday afternoons at The Dog Wellness Centre, Gardenvale.

Bowen Therapy and Emmett Technique For Animals

My name is Helen and I am passionate about helping animals feel better, with less pain and to heal from injury safely and naturally using a combination of Holistic Modalities; Bowen Therapy and Emmett Technique. 

These therapies significantly improve the quality of life and comfort in senior pets and are also beneficial for growing puppies and active dogs that knock themselves around.


The treatments are tailored to suit the needs of each individual animal and are very gentle, non invasive and not rushed, allowing them to safely be used to help dogs during all stages of life – from puppies through to injured dogs, for post surgery recovery and our beautiful golden oldies. 


I’ve been thrilled to see so many senior dogs gain a new lease on life with the resulting gift of more quality time to spend with their families as a result.


Bowen and Emmett help to release tension and bring about a natural re-balancing of the body with the goal of easing muscle and joint problems, increasing flexibility and mobility, calming anxiety and can also boost the body’s immune system and improve general health and well being! 


We are located in Rosebud on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
