I normally recommend a course of 3 treatments over 3 weeks to achieve the optimum benefit. However, this is dependent upon my initial findings, as it may be a simple issue that can be resolved in a single session or you may just want a health check for your dog.
Working to best practise standards, I will not see your dog for more than 3 sessions to treat the initial injury. This is a results-driven therapy & you should see a positive improvement within 3 sessions, so if there is no change, I will refer you back to your vet for further assessment or suggest an alternative therapy that may help.
You are welcome to request:
- regular maintenance treatments to help keep your dog mobile
- seasonal treatments for working & sporting dogs
I am happy to discuss what will best suit your dog.
Subsequent treatments normally last 1 hour & include:
- Your Observations
What changes have you seen, be it any improvement, concerns or problems since last treatment
- Full Body Palpation
I prefer to complete a muscular assessment at each visit, to check previous injuries & ensure your dog has not accumulated any other issues.
- Massage Therapy Treatment
The treatment may not be the same for each session, as it will be tailored to your dog’s specific injuries & issues. It will still include a full body massage treatment, lasting approximately 45-50mins.
I will update you on my findings & add additional information to your personalised maintenance plan. Please bring this with you to each session.
