Acupressure

Massage and acupressure sessions can provide balance to any canine; young, old or recovering from an injury. These services help by improving flexibility, mobility and reducing muscle spasms and stiffness. It also helps to strengthen tendons/ligaments, joints and bones. It can help build the immune system to resolve or prevent illness. Each acupressure session includes massage, acupressure and low impact exercises all individualized to your dog’s needs.

Acupressure is a traditional Chinese medicine technique based on the principles of acupuncture. In acupressure, the application of pressure is used on specific points of the body to release blockages and help promote healing and reduce pain.

The origins of using massage on animals dates back to ancient times. Massage is a form of alternative therapy that uses touch to release tension, reduce pain, improve flexibility, flush toxins and move fresh blood and nutrients into the muscles. Massage can be offered for rehabilitation, competition and relaxation. It can maintain or improve both physical and emotional well-being.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique used for stress reduction and relaxation that can also promote healing. It is based on the idea there is a ‘universal energy’ that runs through us. When the energy is low or blocked it may cause us to feel stressed or ill. Reiki is an ideal complementary therapy for pets because it is gentle, painless, non-invasive and stress-free. Reiki can go to the source of the problem, be it mental or physical, even when the source is unknown to us. Reiki is a great choice for animals because they do not need to be restrained or confined. A treatment can be given either hands-on or from a distance giving the animal the opportunity to be an active participant in the healing process. The ability to receive Reiki from a distance is ideal for those dogs who are shy or nervous and need help building a trusting relationship with people.

Senior Fitness

This session is directed towards the senior dog experiencing stiffness, pain, decreased mobility or any age-related issues. We use a combination of rehabilitation, massage and acupressure. Rehabilitation will focus on low impact therapeutic exercises involving equipment such as balance discs , foam pads, wobble board and cavalettis to increase mobility, flexibility and strength. Massage will increase circulation and lymphatic drainage, relieve muscle spasm/trigger points, and increase flexibility. Acupressure improves mobility, flexibility, strengthens tendons/ligaments, joints and bones and builds the immune system to resolve or prevent illness bringing overall balance within the body.
