Canine Massage & Bodywork

Dogs can benefit from therapeutic functional massage and bodywork in just the same way as their humans do.

Massage can help to: 

  • improve flexibility and range of motion,
  • reduce pain and inflammation,
  • improve nerve and muscle function, 
  • reduce muscle tension,
  • improve muscle tone,
  • reduce scarring and swelling,
  • improve circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • reduce stress and anxiety,
  • promote relaxation

If you would like to book your dog with me for a massage, please complete the intake form: Client Intake: Canine Conditioning, Fitness & Massage and I will be in touch to arrange an appointment.

If you have questions, please email me: yourwholedog@gmail.com 

Massage is also a great way to help dogs who are sensitive to handling become more comfortable with the process in a non-invasive and relaxed manner. 

I am a Canine Myo-manipulative Functional Therapist (CMFT); myo-manipulative is a fancy way of saying massage: 'myo-manipulative' means making changes to the muscle and 'functional therapy' is addressing dysfunctions in the body's ability to move optimally. 

In addition, as an avid consumer of dog-friendly continuing education to support my areas of interest, I have also completed additional certification courses in both kinesiology taping and cold LASER in order to be able to utilise these other modalities within my bodywork practice. 

As a Fear Free and Low-Stress Handling certified dog trainer and massage therapist I work at your dog's pace to gain their trust and participation in the process.
