Canine Massage is a holistic therapy that treats the dog’s entire body, rather than focusing purely on the injured area. This ensures that all potential injuries are identified & any areas of overcompensation or referred pain are also treated.
Although massage works primarily on the skin & muscular system, all of the dog’s 11 physiological systems are inter-linked, so it can influence all the other bodily systems, providing numerous benefits. This is also why it is essential as a therapist, to have an in-depth knowledge of canine anatomy, so as not to cause the dog any bodily harm.
Improving Your Dog's Quality of Life
The main benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Non-invasive therapy
- Natural method of pain relief
- Improves mobility, by reducing lameness
- Reduces stiffness associated with orthopaedic conditions
- Improves muscle flexibility, reducing the risk of injury
- Minimises the risk of overcompensation injuries
- Alleviates age-related symptoms
- Full body health check
- And many more......
Canine Massage allows you to take responsibility for your dog’s health & welfare.
I typically recommend 3 sessions over the course of 3 weeks for optimum benefit.
