Thank you for looking into massage for your pet. I believe massage is one of the most effective, non-invasive, and easily accessible health tools you can offer your pet, and yourself of course.
Massage is used on many different animals for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common calls we get are about an active dog who's having a problem but their vet can't find anything wrong. The other very common request is to help a middle aged dog or cat stay active and feeling good, and of course many calls to help beloved seniors.
After a massage people report wonderful effects such as a disappearing limp, sleeping better through the night, and a happier and more playful pet.

My Background: From 1993 to 2005 I worked with people in different areas of health care, specializing in corrective bodywork. In 2005 I realized that animals, particularly dogs, could benefit from what I'd learned about how bodies do what they do; including how they stay healthy, age well, and get hurt and heal.
