Canine Massage Therapy- is a form of alternative therapy that promotes a dog’s health. It is proven that the touch given to a dog through massage can improve not only a dog’s physical but also his emotional well-being. Massages are great for dogs who suffer from nervousness, anxiousness and hyperactivity. Dog massage benefits include:
• Increased oxygenation of the blood
• Pain relief
• Improved flexibility
• Improved immune system
• Reduced age-related issues
• Reduced arthritis and hip dysplasia discomfort
• Muscle tension, soreness, weakness and spasm relief
• Reduce recovery time from injuries
Pet massage supports the balance and circulation of fluids within the fascia. The movement of water within the tissues controls the temperatures throughout their bodies, including core temperatures, organ temperatures, as well as temperatures of the skin and superficial muscles.
The normal wear and tear of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin that dogs have from romping and playing keep their bodies in a constant state of self-repair and maintenance. Dogs, like humans, have the innate ability to heal themselves for most conditions. Dogs sometimes need external touch and support to re-establish balance.
Massage aids in the circulation of fluids throughout the body which assists the joints and muscles flush toxins from the tissues. The results include reduced pain and stiffness, more flexibility and greater range of motion. Massage also increases blood flow, lowers blood pressure and improves cardiovascular health.
Animal massage therapists are animal health professionals that use their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and massage techniques to improve an animal’s physical well-being. They utilize hands-on massage techniques to relax muscles, stimulate circulation, and enhance range of motion.
