What is a Canine Massage?
Canine massage is a branch off of massage therapy that is directs more towards canines dating back to ancient times, more specifically in India where massage therapist would travel with kings and their canine companions to relief any pain while on their travels. Canine massages make a profound difference in your canine’s health. These sessions will aid in bringing your canines mental and physical energies back into harmony as well as reduce effects of stress on the body from training, shows, and everyday dog life. Canine massages can often provide emotional well-being for the animal as well.
At Healing Hands we make sure that your canine will feel a deeper connection to you as well as develop a relationship with our fellow staff. Therefore, our massage therapists often work with animals to calm hyperactivity, anxiousness, and nervousness
The same strokes and techniques used in human massage are practiced in canine massages as well. Although there are many different ways in which a canine massage therapist will conduct a session, all will use some method to assess the needs of the dog and develop an improvement plan for the animal. The therapist will write down any subjective information given to them by the owner, record any observational concerns about your canine, assess what techniques then need to be used and finally suggest a treatment plan moving forward to help you and your canine relax and recover as much as possible.
We highly recommend that you do not use this as a substitute for veterinary medical care. But when used synergistically, it can help the recovery process in many medical cases.
