Loving Touch Animal Massage 

Enhancing the Life & Health of Your Best Friend

Welcome to Loving Touch Animal Massage

We love our animals. They are part of the family and we want to do all we can to keep them healthy and feeling good. Did you know that massage therapy can be a valuable component in a holistic approach to health and wellness for your dog or cat?

Massage can increase flexibility and alleviate pain in the stiff joints of an older animal.  It can reduce tension and stress in an anxious dog.  This might be relevant when you must board your dog, if you have a dog who experiences separation anxiety, or for an animal who is adjusting to a new home.  Massage will strengthen the immune system, stimulate circulation, and flush out toxins for a dog or cat whose movement is limited due to illness, injury, surgery, or a chronic condition.  It will keep working and performance dogs pain free and in peak condition.  Massage therapy can enhance the life and health of your best friend.                                                                                           

                               

"On the surface, massage may seem like a frivolous idea, but the fact is that massage has so many physical and psychological benefits for your dog that you could almost call it an essential of health care, like grooming, feeding, exercise, etc."

From 'The Healing Touch for Dogs' by Dr. Michael W. Fox, Veterinarian
