We all know how nice a massage feels to us, but did you know that massage is also a great therapy for our animal friends, too? Equine, canine, feline and more can benefit from this wonderful, hands-on approach to whole-body wellness.

There are several different massage styles and techniques including:

  • Sports massage
  • Shiatsu
  • Reiki
  • T-touch
  • Trigger-point
  • Craniosacral
  • Acupressure
  • and so many more

Some benefits include:

  • Calming
  • More supple muscles
  • Improved circulation and flexibility
  • Boosted immune system
  • Decreased pain and inflammation
  • Increased injury recovery
  • and much more

While it is recommended that a professional massage therapist is hired so as to not inadvertently harm your animal, some basic massage techniques can be easily learned with some great tutorials online – or even take your own course through Holistic Animal Studies!

You can also purchase our Scratch Me Silly to get a dual massage/scratch benefit for your animal companion or our famous Scratch n’ All pads and let your animal do their own scratch/massage whenever they so please! Trust us, they’ll thank you!
