About Clinical Canine Massage

 

Almost all dogs can benefit from clinical massage 

Designed to help resolve common muscular issues, and supports orthopaedic and neurological conditions.

Clinical massage can assist dogs to:

1.  Recover from surgery or injury,

2. Address conditions such as arthritis or hip/elbow dysplasia,

3. Manage the physical stresses of daily living, such as jumping in and out of the car, or climbing stairs, which may cause your dog to look and feel old before their time;

4. Perform to their full potential, in particular sporting and working dogs.

Restoring elasticity and flexibility 

I use four disciplines of clinical massage to restore elasticity and flexibility to the muscles and surrounding connective tissue. 

This helps to rehabilitate muscular dysfunction which is causing pain, restricting range of motion, inhibiting movement and affecting posture.

I am looking for and treating strains, trigger points and wide radiating myofascial pain. For an explanation of these please click here

Insurance Cover 

As I am a member of the Canine Massage Guild  (CMG) your insurance company may cover treatments.

Initial Consultation 

The initial session includes a full consultation, with posture and gait analysis, assessment via palpation and a clinical massage. We also discuss daily living activities that may be exacerbating your dog’s muscular conditions. 

This initial session will last approximately 1.5 hours. Subsequent treatments will last about 1 hour. The aim is to see results in 1 - 3 sessions, which ideally I would complete over 1 – 3 weeks.

At the end of the treatment programme we will provide a written report to your vet. It may be that we advise that your dog revisits the vet if improvements are not seen within this time. It is possible that a maintenance programme may be recommended in order to continue to optimise your dog’s muscular health.  

Please feel free to call and discuss your dog’s requirements in more detail.
