About Animal Massage

Massage therapy is the intentional manipulation of the soft tissues and muscles to promote health and healing.

By using precise techniques, at a specific depth, the massage therapist uses a particular direction of movement to obtain the desired effect.

Some benefits of massage :

  • Relieves muscle tightness, stiffness, and spasms
  • Reduces pain in chronic conditions such as hip dysplasia
  • Decreases stress, anxiety and depression
  • Promotes bonding and builds trust
  • Enhances blood circulation, increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients available to the muscles
  • Shortens the healing time of strained muscles
  • Minimizes scar tissue and adhesion’s post-surgery
  • Early detection of abnormalities
  • Promotes overall well being

Massage is not a substitution for regular veterinary care. If your pet has serious medical issues, your veterinarian’s approval to proceed with massage is recommended.
