Dedicated to providing services as part of a holistic approach to your canine’s health and well being
KS Canine Massage and Bodywork sessions utilize the following adjunctive therapies. I believe ‘adjunctive’ is the key word as they should be considered a part of your dogs health and maintenance routine which includes nutrition, veterinary and chiropractic care, dental care and training.
Massage is a system of structured palpation or movement of the soft tissue of the body. There are numerous massage techniques. Each can be specific to a particular area of the body or tissue and structure. I utilize a combination of massage techniques on my Canine Clients. I find that each dog has individual preferences and needs for each session and work within the dog’s comfort level on that given day.
Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine and theory to determine key points on the surface of the skin that can be stimulated to help the canine’s natural self-curative abilities. I have also found Acupressure to be very complimentary to my massage work and, in almost all cases, utilize specific point work as part of the massage session.
Massage and Acupressure a non-invasive techniques that alone, or in combination, can be part of your canine’s overall health routine. As part of the session with your dog I am happy to provide specific massage techniques, acupressure points and guidance for you to do with your dog after my visit.
Massage and Bodywork are not substitutes for Veterinary Care. If your dog is ill or injured, consult a Veterinarian.
