Meet Twheeghee our clinic group therapy dog.
Tweeghee is a regular visitor to our clinics and provides companion support our chronic pain patients.
There is a strong bond between animals and people.
Animals are accepting, non-threatening and non-judgemental, making it easier for people to open up.
Some of the benefits of Tweeghees visits and animal assisted therapy include:
- Reduced anxiety, grief and isolation
- Reduced stress and depression
- Improved social skills
- Reduced need for medication
- Greater self- control
- Increased focus and attention
