Dogs can benefit from massage, too! Just like humans, massage assists healing in a way that compliments the body's natural healing ability.
With your veterinarian's approval and collaboration, the following conditions can benefit from massage:
Injuries resulting from competitive events and backyard play
Hind limb weakness/orthopedic conditions
Post operative healing
Compensating muscle overuse due to anatomical imbalances
Canine massage also benefits senior dogs through relaxation and palliative techniques.
Warm up and cool down massages help dogs that participate in competition.
Canine massage provides many benefits including:
--Increases circulation of blood and lymphatic systems, that assist with healing and the preparation for competition.
--Increases flexibility and range of motion.
--Flushes toxins and metabolic wastes from the system, which facilitates post surgery and post competition healing.
--Relieves muscular restrictions, tightness, stiffness, and spasms.
--Promotes an overall sense of wellness and relaxation, which is especially helpful with rescue dogs, show dogs with butterflies, and nervous dogs.
