Welcome To The World
Just as people do, our animal friends can suffer from built-up physical and emotional tensions that cause pain and discomfort. Animal Massage helps alleviate soreness, tension, and spasm associated with compensation such as the overuse of other muscles to lessen the burden on an injured area; it may help with behavior concerns such as anxiety; or lessen stress such as when transitioning through lifestyle changes.
While it might seem strange, animal massage has been around for many years. All animals of all ages and activity levels may benefit from massage. It doesn’t matter if they are young, old, injured or in the prime of their lives.
A professional massage by a qualified Animal Massage Practitioner may help improve your animal’s health and behavior, as well as their relationship with you. Massage may provide them with many physiological (physical) and psychological (mental) health benefits.
It does this by acting directly upon the muscular, nervous and circulatory systems. Massage helps reach and improve the function of all organs, tissues and the body system.
Other benefits of massage are:
that it is non-invasive,
it promotes circulation,
it aids in flushing toxins from the body,
and helps maintain body balance and movement.
it promotes relaxation and a sense of well-being,
enhances flexibility, muscle tone and range of motion,
aids inactive muscles,
and it helps prevent injury by heightening athletic performance
