Full Body Massage

Do you enjoy a good back rub when your muscles are tight or feel sore? Many people and dogs do as well. Let’s take a look at the positive effects massage can have on your pet’s health and mood.

Specific injuries, such as damaged tissues or arthritis, can be treated effectively with a good rubdown. Thanks to gentle pressure and palpation, your dog’s mobility and flexibility could be restored and improved.

Also, large-breed dogs might experience increasing pain when their bones grow faster than their muscles. This occurs with particular frequency in younger canines, and massage has had excellent results in these cases.

A Massage Can Improve Bodily Functions

Many dogs with emotional issues (shyness, distrust, or depression) respond very well to the power of touch. Regular massages can promote longevity and your animal’s overall health. If your pup has health problems or difficulties with some internal organs, therapeutic massage also has these excellent benefits:

  1. Increases blood circulation
  2. Decreases blood pressure
  3. Improves lymphatic fluid movement
  4. Aids digestion
  5. Stimulates liver and kidneys
  6. Encourages deeper breathing
  7. Lowers stress hormone levels
  8. Boosts the immune system
