Before the Massage

Sports massage is the treatment type that is primarily used.  All dogs and owners will have a  30 minute meet and greet before the initial massage.

The consultation will take place to gain all information and general assessment which includes:

Evaluation of personality of dog
Reason for the massage
Medical History
Gentle hands on examination looking for key points of tension
Recommendation and time frame of further visits required

 

The Massage

Massages will be roughly 45 mins for medium to large breeds.  Shorter for small dogs and longer for extra large.   The massage will be tailored to create the maximum  health benefit after the findings of the consultation.  Music may also be used as a tool to help relax the dog.

There is a warm up period where I will just try to get the dog relax and gain their trust.  Trust is essential and should it not be obtained or at any point where the dog is not up to it, the massage will be rescheduled.

The pressure used during the massage will match the tolerance of the dog.  At no time will excess pressure or force be used!

If the massages are done in your home, it is required that there be a quiet area with no traffic is available.

For overly anxious or territorial dogs the owners presence may be required.   Aggressive dogs are applicable, however a muzzle must be used if approved by owner for safety of all involved.
There is a waiver that will need to be signed at time of assessment.

 

After The Massage

You may notice your dog may act a little differently following the massage.  Please make sure they have access to an adequate amount of water to help flush out the toxins.
Signs and symptoms may include:

Lethargy
Increase in sleeping
Very quiet
Frequent urination
Increased thirst
Injury points may be a little warm to the touch
