About Canine Massage

 

Clinical canine massage helps to rehabilitate soft tissue injuries as well as supporting orthopaedic conditions by providing drug free pain relief. Treatment involves over 50 techniques from four disciplines of massage - Swedish, Sports, Deep Tissue and Myofascial Release (both direct and indirect). Results are typically seen in just one to three sessions.
