Canine Massage - Helping your dog get the balance back.

Canine Massage has become one of the fastest growing complementary therapies, with a proven beneficial record. I trained with ICAT (Institute of Complementary Animal Therapies) obtaining a Diploma with Distinction in 2010. 
At that time Canine Massage/Canine Remedial Massage was relatively unheard of - but it was very clear for me to see that animals benefitted from the soft tissue manipulation as much as humans. During the last eight years I have built up a wealth of experience working and treating dogs with a variety of different backgrounds and histories. 

As with humans, massage can help healthy active dogs, ones who have suffered from trauma or surgery and dogs who suffer from the general effects of ageing. It can help with a variety of issues, both
physiological and psychological. 

  Canine massage helps the performance of the canine athlete (for example, Agility, Obedience, Working Dogs, etc.) and helps reduce the risk of injury, increases mobility and helps to maintain muscle tone.  Regular massage helps maintain peak performance.  It has also proved extremely effective in sport related injuries.

Massage could help your dog to recover or cope with:

Muscle Tension / Muscle Spasm
Lameness - intermittent or consistent
Back pain
Injury and strains
Post operative rehabilitation
General effects of ageing

It can help with the secondary effects of:

Cruciate Problems (pre and post surgery)
Hip/Elbow Dysplasia
Chronic Degenerative Radiculomyelopathy (CDRM)
Arthritis - Osteochondritis Dissecans (OCD)
Intervertebral Disc Rupture  

Regular maintenance massage helps to keep your dog flexible and healthy.
