What is Canine Massage?
A holistic therapy which looks to treat the whole dog not just the area of concern.
It helps to rehabilitate soft tissue and muscular injuries such as strains, sprains and tight ‘knots’ within the muscle known as trigger points. Massage can also help to support orthopaedic conditions such as arthritis, hip or elbow dysplasia and luxating patella.
The 4 disciplines of massage are used encompassing over 50 techniques from Swedish, Deep Tissue and Sports massage, also Myofascial Release – both direct and indirect approaches.
It can provide 100% drug free pain relief in a number of chronic conditions and is suitable for all dogs from young, old, family pet and sporting/activity.
Dogs that respond to this form of therapy generally show an improvement in mobility, pain management and activity levels within 1-3 sessions.
