What is Therapeutic Canine Massage?
Therapeutic Canine Massage is hands on remedial manipulation for the soft tissues of the dogs musculoskeletal system. These soft tissues are the muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia.
There are 700 muscles which pull on the 320 (approximately) bones of the dog's body. It is these muscles that enable your dog to move. Muscles account for 45% of your dog's bodyweight and, when considering the extensive and complex muscular system, it is no wonder that dogs are just as prone to soft tissue injury and issues as much as we are.
Therapeutic Canine Massage aims to improve and benefit the health of your dog's muscles and soft tissues by rehabilitating muscular injuries and issues that restrict their range of motion, hinder their movement and affect posture, which in turn causes pain.
Canine Massage utilises four disciplines of massage therapy; Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release, and combines these with Advanced Canine Anatomy knowledge.

Therapeutic Canine Massage encourages the body to renew and regenerate and provides a drug free form of pain relief for your dog.
