Healing Paws remedial dog massage therapy

  the treatments we offer

therapeutic pain relief
Conditions such as arthritis can be very painful for dogs and there is no cure. Painkillers can be given to ease the pain but will not help with the reduced movement in the dog's joints. Remedial massage can help by warming and stretching the muscles and myofascial release stretching techniques help to increase the range of movement and allow the dog to do day to day activities more easily and with less pain.

postoperative rehabilitation
When a dog goes through surgery, like a human, the muscles are weakened and will take time to repair and, during this period, other muscles work overtime to compensate, which can cause further problems. Healing Paws can tailor a rehabilitation programme, combining massage, stretching and specific strengthening rehabilitation exercises to help make sure that your dog has the best chance of a full and speedy recovery.

pre and post event massage
If your dog competes or takes part in a sporting activity,
such as Flyball, agility or racing, massage has great benefits for both your dog and its performance.

Remedial massage can benefit these dogs in the following ways:

    pre event:
  • Warms up muscles and joints
  • Increases flexibility
  • Mentally prepares the dog for the event
  • Decreases the risk of injury
  • Increases blood flow to the muscles
  • Increases performance rate
    post event:
  • Encourages the removal of waste products such as lactic acid resulting in less post event pain
  • Mentally calms the dog down from the event
  • Speeds up the dog's recovery rate from the event
  • Checks for any injuries they may have picked up

Healing Paws offer a pre and post event package, allowing you or your club to have a therapist attend your event and have on hand service to massage and treatments. Please contact us for more information.

emotional problems
Massage can also help with emotional problems such as stress and fear aggression. Please contact us for more information.

Just like humans, dogs love to be massaged so why not just treat your dog to a pamper session! They are man's best friend after all!

general check-up - 'Dog MOT'
Unlike humans, dogs can't complain about the little aches and pains that we all experience in day to day life. Because of this these problems tend to get left unnoticed until they develop into something more serious. By having your dog treated regularly (4-6 weeks) it allows these problems to be discovered before they turn into something more serious and help prevent problems in your dog's health.
