How does Canine Sports Massage help ALL dogs, regardless of their activity level?
Athletes, Hunters, Active Dogs:
Very active dogs that hunt or compete in canine sports (agility, earthdog, lure coursing, racing, weight pulling, and many others) run a greater risk of injury due to the nature of their sport. Keeping these dogs injury-free and in top shape requires regular conditioning, which should always include sports massage. These athletes benefit from the increased flexibility and range of motion which sports massage provides, thereby reducing their risk of injury. As an added benefit, dogs that are in top physical shape with excellent flexibility recover faster if they do experience an injury.
Weekend Warriors and Couch Potatoes:
The ‘sports’ in Canine Sports Massage is not only for highly athletic dogs. Even our family dogs, whether they are fairly active or chronic couch potatoes, can benefit greatly from sports massage therapy. Lower or sporadic activity can result in sluggish circulation, muscle atrophy, low flexibility, and a decrease in range of motion, especially as our dogs age. Sports massage is beneficial in pinpointing and alleviating the kinks and pains that can be brought on by decreased activity. Being proactive and finding small problems early can save your dog a lot of future pain and save you a lot of money at the vet! Sports massage also increases circulatory and lymph efficiency which enables your dog to have greater immunity and more pain-free movement.
Injury, illness or surgery can take a toll on your dog. Massage can help accelerate healing, reduce pain and increase mobility so your dog can get back to enjoying life!
Injury, illness or surgery can take a toll on your dog. Massage can help accelerate healing, reduce pain and increase mobility so your dog can get back to enjoying life! When your dog experiences an injury, surgery or illness that reduces activity, pain can occur, not only from the initial cause, but also from the lack of movement while your dog heals. At the appropriate time in your dog’s recovery process, sports massage and passive stretching are recommended to help ease pain, promote healing and increase blood and lymph circulation. I can work directly with your veterinarian in determining the proper time and type of massage that is most beneficial for your dog.
Sports massage greatly reduces emotional anxiety and everyday physical stress, allowing your dog to feel and BE more relaxed and happy!
Sports massage greatly reduces emotional anxiety and everyday physical stress, allowing your dog to feel and BE more relaxed and happy! If you’ve ever had a massage, you know the soothing effect it has on you. Your dog experiences those same benefits. Sports massage calms nervous energy and releases endorphins which relieve pain and promote serenity. Canine sports massage also reduces certain behavioral problems such as hyperactivity and the anxiety which can result from a fear of being touched, past emotional and physical trauma, and lack of early socialization. Calming, soothing and relaxing – massage can truly benefit every dog.
