Clinical canine massage therapy is a pioneering therapy!
This unique, strong, manipulative clinical massage for dogs - works by releasing tight, sore muscles, removing debilitating ‘knots’ or trigger points that cause referred pain and helps rehabilitate injuries by breaking down restrictive scar tissue caused by daily activities that may be responsible for your dog’s discomfort.
It’s also a natural form of pain relief that can help to resolve soft tissue or muscular problems and helps support orthopaedic issues like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia or post-operative rehabilitation, protective muscle splinting or areas of over compensation - with tangible results.
Clinical Canine Massage Therapy also compliments and supports your competition, sporting and obedience dogs requirements - to enhance performance, address areas of specific muscular dysfunction and rehabilitate injuries.
