Through the application of advanced, targeted massage techniques, massage can manage and support a range of canine mobility issues;

promoting optimal muscle function throughout your dog’s life and enhancing their performance, wellbeing and recovery.

When a dog changes its posture it is an indication that they are not comfortable or in pain, they then adjust the way they weight bear to protect the injured area, which then becomes weaker and the muscles begin to atrophy (waste away).  In time they will overuse or over work other parts of their body. This will then create painful muscular problems.

Pain from muscular conditions can cause stress which will have an effect on how the dog functions both physically and psychologically, often resulting in a complexity of symptoms. Muscle pain in dogs is often underestimated and sometimes difficult to diagnose and treat.
