Ever wonder if your dog could benefit from a massage? The likely answer is "yes". Similar to human benefits, massage therapy can have relaxing, healing and therapeutic effects on your dog. A dog pushing past its own limits in exercise can result in a strain or injury affecting the normal function of the muscles and joints. Overused, strained and injured muscles may cause muscle tension, inflammation, contractures, spasms and trigger points in the muscles.
Myofunctional Therapy encourages proper muscle function, aids restricted joint movement by addressing muscular dysfunction and helps treat common musculoskeletal problems and some health conditions. Massage can also aid illness, injury or surgery recovery through stress reduction and enhance tissue healing. On the whole massage enables muscle tissue to relax, extend and maintain a healthy tone.
All massage techniques are performed using a direct hands on approach this allows us to feel for even very slight differences in the body condition, muscles, skin and hair during the treatment. As with my training sessions, with massage therapy we will have a consultation beforehand to work out what the best options are for your dog.
