Providing Canine Massage in Hampshire

Massage provides a natural form of pain relief. It can help support injured dogs, ageing dogs and dogs with orthopaedic conditions such as arthritis and hip dysplasia. It can help keep active, working and sporting dogs in top condition. And can also help to calm nervous and anxious dogs.

What is Canine Massage Therapy?

Canine Massage Therapy blends a wide range of complementary disciplines. So this includes sports massage, direct and indirect myofascial release, deep tissue massage and Swedish massage and the Lenton method®. The Lenton method® provides a structure for assessment and treatment of muscular and myofascial pain (http://www.k9-massageguild.co.uk/the-lenton-method/).

This unique, strong, manipulative massage for dogs works by releasing tight, sore muscles. It can also remove uncomfortable trigger points. These are painful ‘knots’ in the muscles that can also cause referred pain. Canine massage also relieves compensatory issues and it can help to rehabilitate injuries by breaking down restrictive scar tissue.

It can help to resolve many day to day mobility issues whether they have suddenly come on or have been there for while.

Massage is also natural form of pain relief that can help support orthopaedic issues like Arthritis and Hip Dysplasia.

We aim to give your dog results they can feel, and you can see through improvements in their mobility and mood, in just 1-3 sessions.

I always abide by the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemptions Order 2015. I never work on an animal without prior veterinary consent.

Download a vet consent form

After downloading the vet consent form, you will need to fill in the top third with your details and your dogs details. You will then need to give the form to your vet to complete the bottom part of the form. I cannot massage your dog without a fully completed form signed by you and your vet. 

A rescue dog with trust issues I was uncertain whether Orla would let Emma touch let alone massage her. Emma was brilliant with her taking things at Orla’s pace. The result being that Orla was not only tolerating but enjoying her massage. Thankyou Emma we will be having some more sessions soon. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Covid-19 updates

Please be aware that our vets are working really hard to support us and our dogs but some are not yet fully business as usual. As a result there may be some delays in them dealing with the necessary veterinary consent forms. Please be patient with them.

If you or any of your family have symptoms of Covid-19, you are shielding or you need to self -isolate due to any possible exposure to the infection, please contact me as soon as possible so we can rearrange the appointment. Appointments rearranged for this reason will not incur a late cancellation charge.

If I have any symptoms, or am aware of possible exposure to Covid-19, I will contact you asap to rearrange our appointment.

There will be some changes to the way appointments are organised, where and how they take place, to minimise risk of transmission of Covid 19. The risk assessment I have completed is available to download below. I have a number of precautions in place for before, during and after appointments, which aim to reduce the risks as far as I am able. Arrangements will be discussed with you at the time of booking, or before.
