Canine Massage Therapy
Canine Sports Massage Therapy is the therapeutic application of hands-on deep tissue techniques to the voluntary muscle system - for the purpose of increasing circulation, reducing muscle spasms, relieving tension, enhancing muscle tone, promoting healing and increasing range of motion in all breeds of dogs.
Massage has been used for therapeutic purposes - on both humans and animals - since the very dawn of time. Its beneficial use has been documented in our earliest cultures from the Egyptians... to the Phoenicians... to the Greeks... to the Romans and on to the present time. It is noteworthy, that in the very first books on human and veterinary medicine, entire chapters would be devoted to the use, benefits and implementation of massage therapy.
Hydro massage is a type of massage based on the therapeutic use of water pressure. The essence of hydro massage is applying massage techniques to the canine through the water (which can be mineral, acerous or any other). Hydro massage helps to relax muscles, increase blood circulation, and relieve muscular pain and tension.
Hydro massage therapy is purported to help alleviate muscle and soft tissue injuries caused by low back pain, arthritis, chronic and acute pain, neck injuries, sports injuries, spondylosis , and stress management and many more diseases and ailments.
Each session lasts from 20 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your dogs needs.
