WHAT IS CLINICAL CANINE MASSAGE?

This unique, strong, manipulative Clinical Massage for dogs works by releasing tight, sore muscles, removing debilitating ‘Knots’ or Trigger Points that cause referred pain and helps rehabilitate injuries by breaking down restrictive scar tissue caused by daily activities that may be responsible for your dog’s discomfort. It can help to resolve many day-to-day mobility issues whether they have suddenly come on, or, have been there for a while.

 

 I aim to give your dog results in just 1-3 sessions. Getting your dog therapeutically treated by a member of the Canine Massage Guild is a must for any dog owner concerned with their dog’s mobility and health. It can help give you answers for what you are seeing with your dog and, importantly, then do something about it. Clinical Canine Massage is a natural form of pain relief that can help to resolve soft tissue or muscular problems and helps support orthopaedic issues like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia with tangible results.

What soft tissue issues may cause what you are seeing?

 

Strains - a tear to the muscle and the most common muscular injury; can occur at any age.

Trigger Points – Hyperirritable bands in the tissue that cause referred and local pain. Often described as 'knots'.

Myofascial Pain – a chronic pain disorder caused by connective tissue restrictions which surround nerves.

Overcompensation – weight shifting from areas of injury or arthritis which create new areas of painful tension.

Protective Muscle Splinting – commonly associated with the muscle having to work too hard due to orthopaedic issues eg: Hip/Elbow Dysplasia.
