Massage is a holistic form of healing that aids in restoring balance and increases an individual’s overall wellness. When used in combination with veterinary care, massage provides numerous benefits. Keep scrolling to see if your pet could benefit from massage therapy!
Massage therapy increases healing time and muscle tone post-operatively and during injury recovery.
Boosting the Immune System
Massage increases lymphatic flow and blood flow to improve the body's ability to heal itself. Massage can be used preventatively or while a pet is facing an illness.
Range of Motion
Massage improves fluidity of movements by improving muscle tone and lengthening a dog's stride.
Stress & Anxiety
Massage helps animals find a state of relaxation using one-on-one attention and connection to calm the parasympathetic nervous system.
Active relaxation helps re-train the brain to be able to calm itself in times of stress.
Massage helps with general relaxation and comfort for achey seniors and busy puppies.
Massage therapy improves the human-animal connection by building trust. Pets with unknown pasts and distrust towards humans will learn gentle touch brings them love and healing.
"Animals are the bridge between us and the beauty of all that is natural. They show us what's missing in our lives, and how to love ourselves more completely and unconditionally. They connect us back to who we are, and to the purpose of why we're here."
