Why Choose Massage

 

Massage is a gentle therapy that can relieve pain.  Massage can be defined as any systematic form of touch which has been found to give comfort and promote good health.  Depending on the application of the techniques, the after effect can be one of relaxation or excitability. 

Animals exhibiting tight or painful muscles can elicit unwanted behavior.  Resistance and/or the lack of willingness to move in a particular direction can be a sign that your animal companion has muscular discomfort.  Massage techniques properly applied can remove pain and muscle spasms.  Muscle stiffness and inflexibility can be altered through the appropriate use of such techniques as passive touch, effleurage, kneading techniques and stretching.

Recovery from illness, injury, the effects of the conditioning process and competition can all be eliminated or improved through the use of massage. 

Benefits of Massage

 

The benefits for massage can be physical, mental and emotional.

Massage physically relaxes the body, reduces mental stress, reduces anxiety and calms the nervous system.  The heart rate can be reduced and respiration slows, inducing mental relaxation.  Stretching of connective tissues improves flexibility, range of motion of the joints and improves “posture”.

Massage can be used to release endorphins, speed recovery from injury or illness, and reduce swelling and scarring.  Touch modalities promote a feeling of well-being and improve concentration, by removing body pain distractions which can make the difference in the day’s performance.  The general health of all beings is improved with the increased circulation of blood and lymph promoted through massage.
