Canine Massage Therapy
Canine Massage Therapy isn't a very common practise in Canada yet, and very few reputable schools exist in Canada for one to become certified in such field. It is important to find someone who is actually certified when it comes to handling your pet. Our Canine Massage Therapist wanted to make sure she had the credentials in order to help both owner and pet feel the most comfortable in her care. She completed her schooling from the International College of Canines Studies through a program based in Ontario. A Canine Massage Therapist is an animal health professional who has knowledge of animal behaviour, anatomy, physiology, kinesiology and deep tissue massage techniques. These skills are used to improve a dog's physical and mental well-being.
*Canine Massage Therapy should not be a replacement for veterinary care. When used in combination with veterinary care, Massage Therapy can help with a number of conditions. Not only will Massage Therapy help maintain your pup's health and wellness, but it can promote recovery of illness, injury, or surgery as well. In some cases, vet approval should be sought before massage therapy is applied.* (For more information, please browse the other tabs in the Canine Massage Therapy section)
