The benefits of massage is to improve gait mobility and flexibility, improve circulation, promote faster healing should your dog have an injury and it will rehabilitate soft tissue injuries and can assist with supporting orthopaedic conditions.
This is a 100% natural form of treatment remembering that the body is receptive to touch and as such it can be manipulated to ensure that affected areas get the right amount of oxygen to enhance the healing process.
