Have you ever wondered how your dog could benefit from Canine Remedial Massage?

We are quick to make an appointment with a massage therapist when we are stressed or a physiotherapist when we need rehabilitation.

So, the question for you is, don't you think that if your dog is struggling to stand up, hop, skip or recover from an injury, that he might need a session of Canine remedial massage therapy?

If you take a look at Canine Remedial Massage, you'll see that it's a massage therapy specifically designed for dogs to improve their mobility and wellbeing. Canine Remedial Massage is performed by a trained professional, such as a Certified Canine Remedial Massage Therapist or a veterinarian with expertise in this area.

Prior to commencing a Canine Remedial Massage session, the therapist will conduct an initial assessment to determine the medical history, gait assessment and understanding of current needs to determine a tailored treatment plan.

During the initial assessment, the Canine Remedial Massage therapist will ensure that if any underlying health problem is identified, advice will be given on obtaining an additional assessment from a veterinarian.

The tailored treatment will determine the appropriate techniques and areas of concern with the aim of promoting healing, improving mobility and reducing pain. Canine Remedial Massage is designed to provide a holistic approach and is beneficial for your dog for the following reasons:

  • Muscle tension and pain relief

Canine remedial massage can help relieve muscle tension and reduce pain in dogs. This is particularly useful for dogs with conditions such as arthritis, muscle strains or general stiffness.

  • Improves circulation

Massage increases blood flow, which can help deliver oxygen and nutrients to muscles and other tissues. Improved circulation can contribute to faster healing and recovery.

  • Flexibility and range of movement

Regular massage can improve a dog's flexibility and range of motion by reducing stiffness and increasing joint mobility. This can be particularly beneficial for older dogs or those with orthopaedic problems.

  • Injury prevention and rehabilitation

Canine remedial massage can be used as part of a rehabilitation programme for dogs recovering from injury or surgery. It can help prevent the development of scar tissue and promote a quicker return to normal function.

  • Stress reduction

Dogs, like people, can experience stress and anxiety. Massage can have a calming effect on the nervous system, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
