Canine Massage

What is it?


Pet massage is a systematic approach to working with the soft tissues and energy fields of the body towards a desired physiological and psychological outcome.


  • Promotes relaxation and emotional well-being.
  • Increases flexibility.
  •  Increases flow for proper nutrient distribution.
  • Provides a sense of ease and comfort (particularly to geriatric animals).

Conditions that benefit from massage:


  • Stiff and achy joints from Osteoarthritis.
  • Sore muscles from highly active animals such as agility dogs.
  • Pre and post- operative areas (when approved by a veterinarian).
  • Sore and stiff muscles brought on by obesity and old age.
  • Stress and anxiety brought on by specific events or environments.
  • Muscle fatigue brought on by body imbalances, injury or disability (missing limbs.)

Session Length

Massage is a complimentary therapy and is NOT meant to take the place of veterinary treatment.
