Preparation and After Care
Before: Leash walk for at least 10 minutes before a massage to get blood flowing, release stress, and a chance to potty
light exercise only for 1-2 days after the massage.
Talk to your vet about adding electrolytes to your dog’s water or food for a couple days following a massage to encourage them to drink more (will help flush lactic acid out of the tissues).
The most popular form of massage for most canines. Swedish massage is incorporated while also using heat and cooling to target muscles. Perfect for working and high-activity dogs.
This form of massage uses specific points in the body on the energy meridians to relief tension and help regain function in specific areas of the body such as respiratory, GI, or skin issues.
For relaxation and loosening of knots. Also increases blood circulation. A perfect addition to grooming appointments to release tension.
