Canine massage therapy can ease the behavioral, emotional, and physical symptoms of pain or distress by removing tension, knots, realigning muscles and ligaments, and creating a more relaxed animal. It is more than petting or grooming. Let me show you why.
Does your pet show any of the following signs?
- Limping or irregular gait
- Walking or standing in a C-shape
- Tail down and tight
- Getting up slowly and stiffly from a prone position.
- Nervous or anxious
- Sensitive to touch
Bodywork that includes multiple modalities can address common physical changes in your pets and help remove imbalance and interference to natural movement, alleviating the symptoms above. In addition, therapeutic canine massage can prevent symptoms and slow the aging process- keeping your dog active and fit for as long as possible!
Bodywork and canine massage is an important aspect of holistic wellness and prevention, increasing healthy blood flow and removing imbalances in the muscle. As a result, the soft tissue can properly stabilize the vertebrae, tendons and ligaments. Canine massage therapy also provides positive touch and desensitization as well as early detection of physical changes for pets of all ages and activity levels.
