The team at Orchard Court Hydrotherapy

Orchard Court Hydrotherapy is run by husband and wife team Chris and Carolyn Robinson. We are now pleased to welcome Nicole Thompson who has recently qualified as a canine hydrotherapist. We are assisted on a Saturday by Zoe Allwood who is currently studying Level 3 Animal Management at Askham Bryan College. Our Retriever Cross Ruby is always on hand to be a calming influence to new swimmers.


Chris ran his own canine hydrotherapy centre near Harrogate, and has worked as a locum hydrotherapist throughout England. He has also spent time working at a hydrotherapy centre in Toulouse in France, and for the last 5 years spends most of his weekends working for the highly respected Greyfriars Veterinary Rehabilitation Referrals in Surrey. Greyfriars is one of the largest canine hydrotherapy centre in the UK.


Chris, Carolyn and Nicole are all members of the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists (NARCH) and hold a Level 3 Certificate in Small Animal Hydrotherapy.
