Therapeutic (Maintenance) Massages


In reality, every massage is therapeutic if the practitioner is knowledgeable and well trained. Massage influences all systems of your dog’s body. Dependent on the purpose of the massage, it can help resolve mobility issues, enhance the immune system by flushing out toxins, increase circulation in the lymph and vascular systems, stimulate portions of the nervous system which affect behavior patterns, and relieve muscular tensions, adhesion, and soreness which can help in reinstating range of motion,  joint and spinal flexibility. Additionally, massage helps promote faster healing after an injury or surgery.
