Your Boundless Hound

Canine Myo-Manipulative Functional Therapy

Canine massage isn’t just for sporting dogs.  Massage therapy can provide continuous benefits after certain surgeries and physical therapy are complete.  Massage therapy also enhances a dog’s sense of well-being which can aid in the release of past trauma.  Many shelter and rescue dogs have physical issues that are a result of trauma. 

 

Maybe you massage your dog at home.  That’s great!  It’s a wonderful bonding opportunity that helps him/her feel better.  But as a certified dog massage practitioner, I am educated in anatomy and physiology.  I have training that is specific to multiple modalities that can benefit your dog.  I have knowledge of many conditions that can affect your dog.  I treat the whole dog; physically, mentally and emotionally.

My process is diverse in that it emcompasses Swedish Massage, Myofascial Release, TMJ Massage, Gua Sha Release, Shiatsu, Red Light Therapy and Cold Laser Therapy. As a Reiki Master Teacher who has over 20 years of experience, I integrate Reiki with the massage for a synergistic, whole-being wellness experience.

Dogs will react in different ways to massage. Some relax into it immediately while others may need more time. I never want your dog to feel that I am invasive so I like to let them lead. It's important for me to build trust with your dog so that they understand massage is a good thing!

Dogs should NOT have massage if they have a contagious condition, nausea or vomiting, fever, open sores, skin infections, tumors or lumps, or if your veterinarian or your dog says "NO".

Please always check with your veterinarian before beginning a massage program for your dog. The information, therapies or techniques provided are not intended to diagnose, prescribe or replace the care or advice of a licensed medical professional or veterinarian.

You are welcome to bring your dog to my office, but in my experience, dogs are more comfortable and relaxed in their home environment. A typical session begins with a review of your dog's health history and current concerns. I will conduct an assessment which also gives me time to get better acquainted with your dog and ensure his/her trust. The initial session will take about one and a half hours. My role as your dog's massage therapist is to work with you to provide the most positive outcome possible for your dog.
