The Benefits of Massage


Canine Massage is a hands on, non invasive, manipulative therapy which aims to get results in 1 to 3 sessions. Its used as a natural form of pain management and aims to actually resolve any soft tissue or muscular issues rather than just masking them with drugs.


Massage is a really effective therapy to help resolve mobility issues such as lameness or limping, reduce stress & anxiety levels and support common orthopedic conditions like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia. It works by releasing tight and sore muscles, removes debilitating trigger point and knots and helps to break persistent pain cycles.  

Dogs are very good at masking any pain or discomfort they are in and the changes you see can be be very subtle to begin with.
