And what about the dogs?

Do you know massage therapy for dogs?

Massage therapy can be defined as the use of different massage techniques for therapeutic purposes, that is, for the treatment of diseases and injuries.

Why a dog massage session? A dog massage session can have several purposes:

  • muscle relaxation

  • facilitate faster rehabilitation in case of injury

  • increase flexibility

  • increase blood circulation

  • improve health and comfort

  • contribute to the welfare of senior dogs

It can be especially useful in the case of hyperactive dogs or with separation anxiety, among other types of emotional problems.


Massages, in addition to improving health and relaxing, have another possible objective: to identify any point that may be causing pain to a dog and, in that case, discuss it with the veterinarian. This is important because massages cannot replace, in any case, a visit to the vet.


Applying massage therapy together with the basic concepts of the Masterson method, especially that of keeping under the alert threshold of the animal, to work with a relaxed nervous system, we obtain multiple benefits in the physical and emotional health of the dog. And the will of the dog is always respected, when they tell you if they like it or not wherever you are massaging them.
