Why massage therapy?

The canine body is no different than humans when it comes to muscles. A muscle is a muscle. The muscles of the body occasionally develop tight spots through normal activity and overuse. When massage is performed on your dog, the muscle tensions are broken up to allow the flow of oxygen and blood to return at a higher capacity throughout the body.


What process is utilized in canine massage therapy?

A hands-on deep tissue massage occurs through the use of eight massage strokes that:

  • open the specific muscle area
  • locate any spasms or discomfort
  • treat the muscle area by breaking up the adhesions
  • close the specific muscle area.

This one-hour, full-body canine massage will assist in returning your best friend to a
more physical and mental soundness and potentially a longer lifespan. Whether you are playing, working or competing with your dog, the process of massage therapy will benefit all involved.


Where does the massage occur?

The session is either at the dog’s home (in a quiet location) or at my home. A massage table is used when appropriate or the massage session can occur while the canine is lying on the floor. Your dog may be a little anxious when the massage process starts but will soon just lay back and enjoy the sequence of massage strokes. A quiet atmosphere should be prepared and soothing music will be played in the background with an aromatherapy candle wafting a relaxing fragrance to the room. At the end of the one-hour massage therapy session, your canine will request a follow-up session.
