What is Clinical Canine Massage ?

Clinical Canine Massage is suitable for:

  • Pet Dogs
  • Show Dogs
  • Working Dogs
  • Agility Dogs
  • Canine Athletes

Dogs have approximately 700 muscles. 45% of your dog’s bodyweight is muscle and these muscles pull on around 320 bones to produce movement. Clinical Canine Massage is a non-invasive therapy that rehabilitates muscular injury and supports orthopaedic conditions through the skilled direct manipulation of muscle and fascia. I use my knowledge of canine anatomy and physiology, alongside my knowledge of muscle origins, insertions and actions, four disciplines of massage and over fifty techniques to get results in 1-3 sessions that owners can see and dogs can feel.

Clinical Canine Massage can help to improve:

  • Gait irregularities, e.g. Lameness, Bunny Hopping, Abduction or Adduction of a leg
  • Posture, e.g. Kyphosis, Lordosis, Tail Carriage
  • Activities of Daily Living, e.g. getting in and out of the car, slowing down on walks, struggling to get up after lying down
  • Behavior, e.g. Depression, Anxiety, reluctance to be groomed
  • Performance, e.g. knocking poles, lack of drive, early onset fatigue

  • Arthritis
