Dog massage is NOT petting. Dog massage is focused, intentional and deliberate touch, to provide specific, beneficial results.
A trained massage practitioner will promote the overall health and quality of life of your dog.
Massage is not a substitute for veterinary care, it is a compliment to traditional veterinary medicine.
"Routine pet massage should go hand-in-hand with good nutrition and sufficient exercise" Dr. Michael W. Fox DVM and former vice president of the Humane Society of the United States, from his book 'The Healing Touch'
