Pet Massage Therapy
Besides making your pet feel great, massage can improve their health and prolong their life.
The specific benefits of professional pet massage include promoting toxin release, enhancing the body’s ability to remove metabolic waste, increasing oxygen to the cells, improving range of motion and flexibility, and revving up blood and lymph circulation.
These processes are set into motion when massage therapy releases the body’s own endorphins, which are natural painkillers and relaxants. Upon the completion of a pet massage therapy session, your cat or dog may experience a greater sense of well-being and improved general health.
Dogs and cats recovering from an injury or medical procedure may heal faster when receiving professional pet massage to increase their circulation. The process speeds up essential nutrients to cells and tissues. As pets age, their parts wear out, and they can develop arthritis, hip dysplasia, or stiff muscles – all of which can be aided with pet massage sessions.
Muscles that have atrophied and cause painful movement slowly can come back to life from being re-sculpted, gently stretched, and manipulated by the hands of a professional. Pets suffering from muscle spasms and soreness often experience pain relief and calming of their tissues into a more relaxed state. Pet massage addresses the whole body system, often making it function better.
The benefits of massage include:
Improves blood flow
Relaxes tight and sore muscles
Helps heal sprains/strains
Many also believe it also strengthens the immune system, improves digestion, and lowers blood pressure.
