Benefits of Massage
Massage is a safe and effective treatment to help your dog achieve optimal health and healing. Massage is not only great for relieving sore muscles and pain, but it also has positive affects on all systems of the body. Canine massage works to improve skin and coat, boost the immune system, increase the amount of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body and eliminate toxins and metabolic waste. Massage can increase the relaxation response in dogs that have undergone stress, have situational fears or have suffered from trauma or abuse. For canine athletes and show dogs, pre-event sports massage helps stimulate muscles for improved performance and endurance, giving your dog a competitive edge. Post-event massage improves recovery time by working out inflammation that can lead to sore muscles, stiffness and fatigue. Massage is a great benefit to older dogs to help reduce the chronic pain of conditions such as arthritis, joint degeneration, or hip dysplasia.
