RESULTS YOU CAN SEE & YOUR DOG CAN FEEL

What Is Therapeutic Canine Massage (TCM)?

For muscle and joint problems, this strong manipulative type of massage brings great results and relief while helping to resolve many sub-clinical, everyday mobility issues you may see with your dog. It also helps to significantly support Orthopaedic Issues like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia. This unique type of massage for dogs relies on extensive knowledge of Canine Anatomy & Physiology, the movement of tissue over tissue, connective tissue release and the remobilisation of muscle to help break down scar tissue and promote better Range of Motion in the dogs joints.
