Pet 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

The session length is determined by the size of the animal as well as their tolerance to the session.  While the practitioner has a basic massage routine, what the session actually looks like is guided by the pet.  Some animals are very receptive to the work and allow the practitioner to do a whole body routine.  Others can tolerate only small doses of the work or techniques done on only certain parts of their body.  The session could last only a few minutes or could go upwards of 30-45 minutes.

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