What is Canine Massage Therapy?
Hands On Healing
Canine massage therapists specialise in treating dogs with chronic muscular pain and the associated compensatory issues. By treating the pain symptoms and compensatory issues we will ultimately enhance mobility, physical health and wellbeing. I will apply advanced clinical massage techniques specific to the individual dogs whilst providing a tailored supportive programme to perform at home to continue to strengthen and build the muscles whilst managing the chronic pain.

Support the body in the development of healthy scar tissue
