BENEFITS OF ANIMAL MASSAGE THERAPY
Animal body workers work with veterinarians, farriers, chiropractors, and others to provide a holistic wellness program. Equine sports massage therapy and canine sports massage therapy complement these therapies and help to keep vertebra aligned, reduce swelling, aid digestion, and more.
Often owners feel that they provide the appropriate massage on their animals and do not need professional services. Petting and stroking is an important part of building trust with your animal, as well as providing minor relief. Unfortunately, even minor tension can lead to larger problems and potentially injury if not detected and treated.
Certified sports massage therapists use their fingers, hands, arms, and elbows. We evaluate, detect, and treat muscle spasms and pressure points. In this manner, we address the entire body of your animal and are part of a team of wellness experts.
Is your animal timid, nervous, or doesn’t like strangers? No problem. Sports massage also helps to achieve mental balance. Treatment is customized to the needs of your animal. Even the most sensitive animals achieve the results they need.
Providing exceptional quality and specializing in sensitive animals, Heather uses massage and aromatherapy to provide holistic wellness to relieve: inflammation, pain, anxiety and increase: flexibility, mobility, and speed healing. Book your appointment today.
