Benefits of Canine Massage

Like humans, our pets can also experience physical and emotional strains and pains which, left untreated, can cause imbalance, leading to an unwell pet.

Canine Massage is a hands-on technique of manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that..

  • Helps maintain balance and harmony.
  • Improves circulation.
  • Relaxes muscles.
  • Balances muscle function and joint action.
  • Helps to eliminate scar tissue, adhesions and knots.
  • Helps with mobility.
  • Increases range is movement.
  • Increases flexibility.
  • Decreases anxiety and tension.
  • Decreases inflammation.
  • Helps to eliminate waste and toxins in the body.
  • Increases the amount of nutrients to the muscles.
  • Helps to relieve the pain of arthritis.

Canine Massage is considered the best thing you can do to bond and build the trust level with your dog.  Massage therapy can help with behavioral problems and to help your dog feel better.

Massage can be as simple as just rubbing your pet gently all over his body.  EVERYWHERE .. From the ears, and teeth and gums to the paws and toes.  Have your dog lie down on the floor.  Start at the head and rub gently as you work your way down the back and sides, tail and feet.  Be gentle and talk quietly to let your dog know that this is OK.  If you have a pet that is high energy or not used to being touched, you may want to start with short sessions.  My mommy does simple massage on all of us dogs everyday.  If someone has had a therapy visit, they get some extra massages.   Mommy makes sure that we have lots of water available after a massage session.

There is a special massage called TTouch.  It uses small circles with your fingertips in a clockwise motion.  Here is a website to check it out .. http://www.tellingtonttouch.com
