WHY MASSAGE THERAPY WORKS FOR ARTHRITIC DOGS

Massage increases circulation, which is important because it feeds tissues and muscles that have been damaged by joint degeneration.

Massage breaks up adhesions that tend to form in the connective tissues of a stiff, arthritic dog.

Gentle manipulation of the tissues and muscles reduces pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and stiffness.

Constricted muscles and tissue around the joints are loosened, allowing further reach when stretching the limbs, plus an increased range of motion, flexibility and mobility.

Therapeutic Massage For Your Dog

is receiving more recognition from veterinarians as an effective healing tool.  Any dog is a candidate for a therapeutic massage and will greatly benefit, but a treatment is particularily helpful for those inflicted with arthritis or orthopedic issues.  A massage treatment promotes flexibility, mobility, eases stiffness, loosens contracted or tight muscles, and decreases pain and inflammation.  Canine massage therapy also relaxes, soothes and nourishes the canine body, mind and spirit!
