There are many good, strong reasons to maintain your pet’s health through therapeutic massage. The best reason of all, is, in a word: Science. Research has proven that your Pet will feel and perform at their highest levels by ensuring oxygen rich blood is flowing throughout their circulatory systems. This guarantees organs, muscles and tissues are receiving all the oxygen they need. Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage increases circulation to your Pets’ physically active systems, leading to fewer injuries, less down-time and faster recovery. It also increases your Pets’ overall health and well-being. Even better, it just feels good!
Another strong reason is simply "Massage as Physical Therapy". Our pets are often the most athletic and hardest working member of our families. Flyball, Obedience, Security Work, even Therapy Dogs are putting in long days that are physically demanding, highly impactful, and often quite stressful for them. Even just moving around during the day, from bed to food dish to the couch can be a workout! Just like people, pets see strong benefits from Physical Therapy Massage at the end of a hard session or long day. Not only does it aid and speed up recovery time, it can be a way to prevent stress injuries to joints and soft tissues for the pet, as well as being a calming event that helps in mental and emotional recovery and stability.
