Keeping your dogs moving with canine massage!

Canine massage is an effective therapy for dogs with mobility issues.  These can include soft tissue injures, like muscle strains (or tears) and orthopaedic conditions like arthritis or hip dysplasia.  It is also an excellent therapy for rehab work and post operative care.

Canine massage is a remedial treatment tailored to the needs of your dog,  to ease any discomfort and improve their mobility and quality of life.

Louise Swindlehurst owner of Worcestershire Canine Massage works with your vet to resolve and support your dogs condition.  Whether its for general well being, sporting or working performance related issues or long term chronic conditions.

Teejay is and agility dog who has had many different treatments through his life in order to keep him in peak condition for his job.  He is nearly 9 years old and recently has been measuring  his jumps.  Since his treatment I am pleased he has more confidence to stretch out over jumps and has really benefitted from the sessions."

Canine Massage with Louise Swindlehurst

I am qualified in 3 disciplines in canine massage; swedish, sports and myofascial release. Swedish massage promotes natural good health and relaxes your dogs.  Whilst the sports element is used for injury detection and repair.  Myofascial release frees jammed tissues, relieving pain and discomfort.

These techniques differ from those used on a human as a dogs anatomy is very different to a humans and therefore requires specialist techniques.

Often dogs become old before their time or have to have their sporting or working lives cut short.  Massage can reverse these effects and allow dogs to work, compete and play for longer.

Soft tissue injuries are often difficult for vets to diagnose as they don't show up on scans and x-rays.  Massage releases muscles fibres so that deeper injuries can be felt and treated.

We aim to give your dog results in just 1-3 sessions.

It’s also natural form of pain relief that can help to resolve soft tissue or muscular problems and helps support orthopaedic issues like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia with tangible results. Just check out our testimonials!

After cruciate ligament surgery (TPLO) Oscar was still not weight bearing on his leg.  Louise handled Oscar very well and was good with him.  Oscar liked her very much.  Afterwards he was walking much better on his leg instead of carrying it in the air.
