Gentle Body-work Therapy
Many people benefit from different types of body work, but did you know that animals can also benefit from the same type of body work? I know how frustrating it is to be told that medication or surgery is the only way to help your dog with soft tissue issues, but there are so many less invasive options available.
Rather than treating just the symptoms which can present risks and side effects, especially when used long term, there are alternative methods of treatment that are much less invasive and effective in helping a variety of conditions. To help improve the quality of life for your precious canine and feline family members, we incorporate treatments such as:
Young and healthy dogs also benefit from these modalities because as we all know ... “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” With regular preventative care, potential problems can be detected early and treated in a minimally invasive manner before being left to progress into chronic, hard to treat, expensive problems.
We can work on small animals such as dogs and cats or even other pets like rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, lambs and I've even had the wonderful experience of working on a kangaroo!
A lot of dogs can become sore after a grooming visit, especially as they get older or after an adventurous day at the beach or park, so how can you help them in such a way that their body will respond well and recover quickly but in a gentle manner? Give us a call! These body-work techniques are non-invasive and are excellent for musculoskeletal and neuro-muscular issues as well as a whole range of other issues, including general health and well-being.
They're gentle, holistic, well tolerated and safe and can be used on their own or in conjunction with veterinary care and to assist in rehabilitation before or post surgery ...
Soft tissue therapy for animals
I love being able to help your dogs and cats to feel better, move easier and live their best life by delivering personalised treatments, tailored for each individual animal, using a combination of gentle, non-invasive, holistic modalities.
These therapies are holistic in nature meaning they affect the body as a whole and bring about a natural re-balancing and initiate healing, improving a dog’s general health and quality of life by alleviating pain and dysfuntion and increasing flexibility. Bowen is a very relaxing treatment which helps to restore your dog or cat back to optimum health.
