What is Clinical Canine Massage?

Clinical canine massage is a hands-on non-invasive therapy that helps to rehabilitate soft tissue injuries, such as strains and sprains, which may show as limping, lameness or change in ability to perform normal activities. It can also support ageing dogs and dogs with orthopaedic or chronic conditions such as hip dysplasia or arthritis, by reducing pain and improving mobility.

Massage can also be used for the rehabilitation after surgery to aid in healing and address areas of overcompensation. For athletic or service dogs canine massage can aid in maintaining the optimum muscular health for improved performance.

Would clinical canine massage benefit my dog?

  • Is your dog slowing down on walks?
  • Are they reluctant to go up and down the stairs?
  • Do they have poor posture?
  • Do they show stress or anxiety?
  • Do they have reduced mobility?
  • Or show signs of intermittent lameness?
  • Does your dog already suffer from conditions such as arthritis, spondylosis, hip or elbow dysplasia?
  • Or have they shown changes in performance when competing or out working?

“After canine massage treatment with Emily we have noticed Bear has improved his mobility and finds moving around the house and up and down stairs more comfortable. He also wants to run around the garden more – zoomies! We look forward to continued maintenance sessions with Emily”

The Treatment

Treatments are tailored to your individual needs and I will use a blend of massage techniques I have trained in, including Swedish massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage, myofascial release and Thel Lenton Method.

The first session was last up to 90 minutes and will include taking a full history of your dog, a gait and posture analysis, full body palpation and a massage addressing areas of concern.

Subsequent treatments will be 45-60minutes and will continue to address your dogs needs. We normally recommend a course of 1-3 sessions between 3-5 weeks to with this approach providing the most positive changes. After these initial treatments it may be that maintenance sessions are considered for the long term management of conditions.

I work best practice and do not block book sessions.
