CERTIFIED CANINE MASSAGE THERAPIST
EQUINE SHIATSU MASSAGE PRACTITIONER
Many of the Dogs I work on compete in Agility Competitions. Agility training is a celebration of canine athleticism. Your Dog is running courses like an Olympic athlete. Muscles are being taxed and pushed to their limit. Without proper care injuries can occur. Massage keeps the Dog’s muscles healthy and ready for the next event or training session.
Massage helps prevent injuries and arthritis in horses due to working, racing, jumping, showing. As well as improper saddle and horse shoe fitting.
Dogs that have suffered an injury and are on the road to recovery benefit from massage. It works as an anti-inflammatory agent on the muscles being used to overcompensate for the injury. Canine Massage can also aid in preventing muscle atrophy, and release the dog’s endorphins, speeding their recovery.
Many Senior Pets suffer from arthritis, making it more difficult for them to climb stairs, get in and out of vehicles, and move their body like they are used to doing. Regular use of massage is extremely beneficial. It can work as an anti-inflammatory agent by slowing down the deterioration of the muscles and joints and give your old girl or boy some much needed relief.
We all love our pets and it is hard to say goodbye. Massage can be a wonderful addition to hospice care and treatment for any pet nearing their last days. It can help them feel calm, ease their pain, and give them comfort during that time.
When an animal has surgery, the after effects of anesthesia can delay their recovery. The massage technique of stroking can be used to help move blood flow and assist the circulatory system to remove the anesthesia out of their body and make their recovery time faster and easier.
