Your dog can return to normal active daily living – e.g. going up and down stairs, exercise enjoyment & become a happier dog.

Clinical canine massage is naturally effective at reducing pain and stiffness, improving mobility and as it works on the body as a whole, preserving your dog’s health and enhancing its quality of life.

There are around 700 muscles in your dog’s body, and over 320 bones to which they connect, enabling movement to take place.  As with humans, these muscles can become tired, overworked, get injured and develop knots (trigger points), all of which can restrict movement and cause discomfort and pain to your dog.

Through gait & postural analysis and palpation, a trained Clinical Canine Massage Practitioner, will work with your dog to identify any problem areas. I use four disciplines of massage - Myofascial release (direct and indirect), remedial sports massage, deep tissue massage and Swedish massage - to manipulate the soft tissue to remedy injuries, help with your dogs range of motion, ease orthopaedic issues and increase their vitality.

Each dog is treated as an individual and with over 50 techniques to choose from, each massage session is adapted to suit your dog’s requirements, needs and comfort.
