What is canine massage

Canine massage works by releasing tight, sore muscles, removing debilitating knots or trigger points and helps rehabilitate injuries by breaking down scar tissue caused by daily living actives.

It is also a form of natural pain relief and can help resolve soft tissue or muscular problems and also helps support orthopaedic issues such as Arthritis, Hip/Elbow Dysplasia and cruciate ligament injuries.

Issues within the muscular system can prevent a dog from performing day to day actives such as running, walking, getting in and out of the car, going up and down the stairs and even what are considered normal tasks like lying down or getting outside the back door.

Through massage these problems can be resolved and supported. It is a therapy that should never be underestimated that produces startling results and a positive impact upon the dogs’ quality of life.
