Canine Myotherapy & Massage
Hands-on treatment to help your dog
Our canine myotherapy and massage treatments can help improve your dog’s physical condition, whether they’re recovering from surgery, living with an illness, getting on in years or dealing with the strains of high intensity work and sport.
We offer non-invasive physical treatments, which can improve and maintain your dog’s health and wellbeing. These treatments can be used to relieve the symptoms associated with existing injury or illness, and are also a great preventative measure in maintaining your dog’s optimum conditioning and mobility.
What is Canine Myotherapy Treatment and Massage?
Canine Myotherapy Treatment is a form of non-invasive physical therapy for dogs. It treats dysfunction and imbalance in the musculo-skeletal system, reducing overall stress in the body and re-establishes optimum function and balance.
During treatment, the layers of skin, fascia and muscle are manipulated using massage and stretching, to provide release and support the body’s natural ability to heal, recover and rebalance on its own. We can also provide body conditioning and strengthening exercises to assist with recovery and mobility.
