Dogs and cats benefit from massage therapy as do humans. It is targeted manipulation of muscles and skin to refresh blood circulation throughout all systems, organs and tissues of your pet’s body. The result is a healthier, more comfortable feeling of well being that benefits many physical conditions

and illnesses.

  • Reduces anxiety and stiffness

  • Relieves aches and pains

  • Strengthens the immune system


Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle touch that stimulates movement of the central nervous system to unite brain messages with the rest of your pet’s

body. The result is relaxation that sends healing throughout your pets body for better health and coordination.

  • Improves orthopedic problems

  • Reduces chronic back pain

  • Optimizes natural healing and builds immunity
