COULD YOUR DOG BENEFIT FROM A MASSAGE?
Yes you read that correctly!
If your dog is showing signs of increased stiffness, slowing down on walks, experiencing a change in gait or activities of daily living, your dog may indeed benefit from a clinical canine massage.
Clinical canine massage is a complimentary therapeutic treatment that is used to help support and resolve muscular dysfunction within your dog’s body that may be having a detrimental effect upon their mobility, behaviour and quality of life.
It uses the skilled application and manipulation of muscles, tendons and connective tissue, incorporating traditional massage techniques along with direct and indirect myofascial release to support post- operative healing, sporting and show performance and day to day living.
Canine massage can be applied to any dog, whether young and active or aging and coping with a long- term condition such arthritis. The treatment will work to relieve muscular and connective tissue restrictions, spasms and contracture, increase joint flexibility, promote post- operative healing and provide some drug free pain relief aiding sleep and relaxation.
