We offer holistic therapy for dogs in the form of clinical massage and bodywork. With gentle hands, extensive knowledge and a vision to heal the “whole” dog we treat a variety of canine patients from growing puppies, active, sporting and working dogs, dogs post-surgery or those who are ill or injured (contraindications may apply) to the seniors amongst our best friends and all those that are generally healthy and want to stay that way. Clinical massage is a non-invasive therapy which is used to support healing and to help prevent injuries and can also be applied for issues with behaviour and anxieties.

Benefits of Canine Myofunctional Therapy

Reduces pain, compensation and dysfunction

Your dog will be able to increase their stride length, range of motion and improve overall joint movement as the musculature will strengthen and positive proprioception (resetting the muscle memory pattern) will be initiated. This allows for a natural gait and will help prevent musculo-skeletal injuries from happening.
