Canine Massage & Bodywork NOT AVAILABLE
Just like for humans, regular bodywork is a wonderful contributor to overall wellness and fitness. It helps to maintain muscle health and flexibility, and feels great on tired or sore muscles.
Canine massage is not used as a substitute for veterinary medical care. However, when it's used in combination with a complete medical regimen, it can help to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation process.
In particular, canine massage used for rehabilitation purposes can include the following benefits:
Helping to relieve age related mobility problems
Reversing muscle atrophy from inactivity or disuse
Providing relief from muscle tension, soreness, spasms, and weaknesses
Providing relief from chronic pain and discomfort from arthritis, hip dysplasia, etc. through the release of endorphins.
In addition, canine massage can provide emotional well-being for the animal. Massage therapists often work with animals to calm hyperactivity, anxiousness, and nervousness.
All services (fitness and theraputic) require signed and completed veterinary forms stating that the dog is fit to partake in aquatic activities, as well as a signed Client Consent Form.
