Clinical Canine Massage Therapy specialises in the rehabilitation of soft tissue and muscular injuries, providing support with common orthopaedic conditions such as arthritis and hip dysplasia, those dogs that are amputees and those that are living with neurological conditions. Canine Massage Therapy is a results driven therapy and often achieves improvements in dogs’ mobility, pain management and activity levels with just 1-3 sessions. Do you own or know a dog that is ‘slowing down’, is struggling with every day activities such as getting on and of the sofa or in and out of the car, has their personality changed or are they reluctant to go on walks or to play? Clinical Canine Massage Therapy can really help.
Oz has arthritis in his spine and hind legs and was struggling with walks. He was also grinding his teeth a lot which I now know is one indicator that he is in pain. After just one session with Jo, I was able to reduce the pain medication that I was giving to Oz and he appeared to be better on his walks. After session three Oz was no longer grinding his teeth, seemed happier and the whole of the family felt that we had a younger version of our dog back. Oz was even instigating ‘play’ with us and our other dog Mila.
Beege seems less anxious, even just after one session and is no longer reacting to loud/strange noises. Beege was a little lame on one of her front legs and could not sit without hopping from one leg to another, after three sessions, Beege is no longer doing this, appears to be in less pain and is also recovering more quickly from longer walks.
Jo was gentle and quiet with Henry but also firm and thorough with the treatment. She quickly recognised Henry’s areas of discomfort and showed us where he needed the most help. After the sessions with Jo, Henry has been more active and moves more freely. As a family after session one we were able to feel that Henry’s muscles had relaxed. Henry is now probably doing things that he shouldn’t be at his age!
