He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

The benefits of therapeutic massage for animals are endless!  Massage releases the body's natural pain relievers called endorphins, increases circulation of blood, nutrients, lymph, and oxygen to the tissues, promoting healing, while it cleanses the body of its metabolic waste. 

Massage affects the Autonomic Nervous System, calming the "fight or flight" response, and reduces the level of harmful stress hormones in the body.  Massage stimulates lymphatic flow, improving tissue drainage and enhancing the immune system, as well as every other system in the body.


Massage is especially helpful for arthritic and senior animals, as well as growing young animals, athletic and competitive dogs, working dogs, recovering animals, and fearful and stressed animals, but offers healing benefits to all animals!
