Just as we humans appreciate the health and emotional benefits of massage therapy, so too do our pets. Let Mary Brickner, Certified Canine Massage Practitioner in Denver, CO, enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of your dog.
Massage offers numerous positive physical benefits for dogs; they include a stimulated immune system, increased circulation and flexibility, reduced potential for arthritis and relief from muscular stiffness and discomfort. It also aids in early detection of swelling, injury or painful areas and facilitates recovery when surgery is necessary.
The emotional benefits to your dog are no less apparent. Many animals with emotional issues stemming from grief, abuse or abandonment respond well to the relaxation and healing touch of massage. Sessions can also help acclimate dogs to physical contact, making them easier to handle for grooming and medical care.
Like humans, each dog reacts differently to massage. Older dogs may become very playful, puppies may become very calm and some dogs may just curl up and take a nap. Under Mary’s compassionate and expert care, your dog’s “inner puppy” will emerge. Schedule a consultation today!
