In my work, many of my clients are looking for alternatives and additions to their traditional vet care. Massage is one of those alternatives. Massage helps ease muscle pain, arthritis, edema, injuries, high blood pressure, anxiety and stress, etc. by working with the whole body system. By working with the whole body, I can feel where pain may be, and work with that area as well as surrounding areas that also may be affected. As with most humans today, pet massage is not simply a luxury, it is a way of helping your pet feel better, move better, and learn how to respond better. Think about it–you know how much better your body and mind feel after a massage, the same is absolutely true for you pet!
