Regular home massage keeps our dogs relaxed, healthy, injury free and can ward off arthritis and other pain disorders in later life. It is also a wonderful way to communicate with your dog using touch and body language.
Massage is therapy for all kinds of health conditions. And latest research shows the link between emotional responses such as, anxiety in dogs and concomitant tension in their musculo-skeletal system. Like humans, dogs hold trauma within their body both physical and emotional.
If you would like to have a chilled out dog – massage is one of the most instrumental tools you can use to help them. It helps to transform behavioural issues, such as, fear aggression, barking, anxiety, phobias etc.

“I use massage as part of the home visits and behaviour consultations that I give to my dog clients because it helps me to transform a negative behaviour or energy into a calm and relaxed state. Massage is also very healing and balancing for the body as it releases blocks and aids blood flow to where it is needed.”
Please make sure to pre-pay for this workshop as it is a small group setting.
“Great workshops! Nicky gives you a deeper understanding and connection with your fur-baby and the explains the science behind the alternative and holistic therapies available. Absolutely 100% recommend.”
