Serenity is defined as the state or quality of being serene, calm, or tranquil. That definition anchors my mission for every encounter with your pet. We all lead stressful lives and like us our pets also need certain treatments to make their time with us as enjoyable and pain free as possible.
If you've ever had a really good massage, you know how wonderful it is--and how much better you feel for hours or even days afterward. And you've probably already realized how much your dog loves a good ear or tummy rub. It's no surprise, then, to realize that the benefits of massage just might apply to your pet, too. A good massage can
- improve circulation
- decrease pain
- promote flexibility
- reduce stress and tension
- support healing after surgery/injury
- enhance immune system health
... all of which are good things. Even pets who are healthy can benefit from a nice, relaxing massage, just as we problem-free humans can.
Massage feels great for both animals and their parents, and it strengthens the human-pet bond. What's not to love?
Medical science is making it possible for our pets to live much longer lives. However, with that comes the problems that are associated with aging. Massage therapy helps the older, less active pet live a more comfortable life.
