Benefits...

Massage has the same great benefits for animals as it does for you! Plus animals have the ability to integrate the benefits of massage into their bodies more quickly than we do. Massage may be used for:

  • Physical and emotional well-being
  • Relaxation
  • Pain Relief
  • Age related issues
  • Animal athletes
  • Increasing circulation
  • Pre and post surgery
  • Decreasing muscle tension
  • Building confidence
  • Increasing balance and coordination
Hydrotherapy in a swim spa heated to 92- 94 provides a soothing, non-weight bearing way to increase strength and function, in addition to all the benefits of massage. The combination of swimming and warm water massage could assist with:
  • Chronic pain
  • Improving range of motion
  • Increasing flexibility
  • Paralysis
  • Exercise
  • Injury
  • Obesity
  • Endurance
From The Pet Lover's Guide to Canine Arthritis and Joint Problems:

"Swimming may be the single best activity for arthritic joints.  We and our dogs are buoyant in the water, easing the impact of exercise on cartilage, while the motions of swimming require the swimmer to use full motion of the joints.  Swimming helps increase flexibility and strength, making it the perfect activity for a dog with osteoarthritis."

From Canine Rehabilitation & Physical Therapy:

"There are many benefits of aquatic therapy.  Exercising in water is effective for improving strength, muscular endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, range of motion (ROM), agility, and psychological well-being, while minimizing pain."
