What is dog massage?

Ohms Horse & Hound Massage Service Canine TherapyDog massage includes many techniques - these include effleurage, compression, skin rolling, trigger point and stress points as well as many others. It has been used to calm excited dogs, to relieve pain in sore dogs, and to increase energy and focus in performance dogs. Massage increases blood circulation, increases the movement of lymph, speeds healing, helps rebalance the body and helps relieve pain and discomfort.

Massage is now available to improve the quality of your pet's life.

Each dog massage is different; depending on what the dog's needs that day. As a dog becomes familiar with receiving a massage, they are eager to begin each session and they relax quickly and deeply. Often a dog will "ask" for particular work by moving his body under the therapists hands.

Massage is not petting. Massage is focused, intentional, and deliberate touch to balance, soothe, and energize. Massage is the manipulation of muscles and skin to promote increased circulation to all the organs and tissues in your pets body. A trained practitioner's hands become sensing devices that interact with the dog to improve the dog's overall health and quality of life.
