Clinical Canine Massage Therapy is a hands-on form of non-invasive pain relief aimed at getting tangible results in just one to three sessions.
As a fully trained and insured Clinical Canine Massage Therapist I spent over two years completing my coursework and learning amazing techniques to help dogs. I am now part of the Canine Massage Guild, a nationwide register for therapists and being a member means I must complete 25 hours CPD per year, do my best for clients and adhere to the Veterinary Surgeons Act.
Clinical Canine Massage is a comprehensive remedial bodywork system that utilises four disciplines of massage and involves assessment, manipulation and movement of the muscles and fascia to resolve or manage pain and dysfunction. The focus is for me to work with veterinary diagnosed conditions to rehabilitate and treat muscular dysfunction that is restricting range of motion, inhibiting movement and affecting posture which in turn is causing pain and discomfort to the dog.
This form of therapy can also address and support the following:
- Hip Dysplasia and Elbow Dysplasia
- Intervertebral Disc Disease
- Myofascial Pain
- Soft Tissue Injury (Strain & Sprain)
- Trigger Points
- Senior dogs (especially if Arthritic)
- Post Orthopaedic Surgery (after 6 weeks)
- Sporting or working dogs
- Soft Tissue Injury (strain/sprain)
- Pre Diagnosed Orthopaedic Conditions such as Arthritis or Dysplasia
- Young dogs to aid with relaxation, reduce anxiety and getting used to be being handled
