Benefits of Massage for Behavior and Training
At the Northwest School of Animal Massage, we love to foster good relationships between people and their pets. Through proper diet, veterinary care and a therapy regimen including massage you can help them build confidence and strong social skills.
Massage can help in the following ways:
- relieves nervous tension
- provides positive reinforcement
- improves oxygen flow to the brain
- stimulates release of “feel-good” chemicals in the brain
- assists with socialization
- supports positive handling experiences
- helps the animal achieve a “calm mind – active body”
Whether you have a young animal just beginning their training or perhaps an adopted pet with an unknown history or less than ideal history when it comes to behavior and handling, massage can be a valuable tool in helping build their confidence and helping them to be safe and happy in all sorts of social situations.
