WHY GET A PET MASSAGE?
# 1 reason is to prolong and enhance the quality of life of your pet. Massage therapy increases circulation which benefits the body in various ways, it can alleviate aches & pains, arthritis or hip dysplasia. It can also help heal pets faster who underwent orthopedic or soft tissue surgery. It restores flexibility and increases muscle tone and use. It calms overly excited pets and comforts those who are upset that suffer from separation anxiety. It also helps newly adopted or fostered pets to decompress and adjust to their new living situation. Lastly, by using Range Of Motion, I am also enhancing the 'Chi' or 'Energy' throughout the body and rebalancing circulation that is the mental, physical and spiritual circulation as well of your pet.
