Massage is one of the oldest and most effective forms of treatment. It helps to reduce the chances of injury and speed up the healing process when injury has occurred.
Canine Massage can be used alongside veterinary care and is commonly used for chronic pain management; soft tissue injury rehabilitation and prevention; and supporting dogs with orthopaedic and neurological conditions.
In dogs, the tightening and shortening of muscles and areas of overcompensation often make a dog old before their time. If you recognise any of these symptoms then your dog will benefit from a Canine Massage!
