Benefits of Massage for Athletic Animals
At the Northwest School of Animal Massage, we recognize that sporting events and exercise are a great way to maintain your pets health, but they can also place added stress and strain on their bodies. Regular massage can keep your pet performing at their peak.
- improves flexibility and range of motion
- supports mental focus
- improves “muscle memory”
- improves circulation
- flushes waste products from the body
- speeds recovery
- aids in early detection of performance issues
So whether you are starting out with a young animal new to training or perhaps you have adopted an animal with an unknown history or less than ideal experiences in social settings, massage can be a tool in building their confidence and helping them explore new situations happily and safely.
