Just like humans, dogs experience stress, trauma, or an illness during their lifetime. These experiences may eventually negatively affect their posture, movement, blood circulation and muscle flexibility. In the long run, your dog’s good quality of life is compromised. All dogs irrespective of whether they are healthy or unhealthy benefit from a feel good massage to de-stress. Chemicals called cytokines are released during a massage and these help to reduce stress hormones. Reducing stress can also help your dog to fight ailments and illnesses as he ages. This enhances his talents and improves his well-being and longevity. Massage therapy can aid in improving your dog’s behaviour, Improve movement and relieve much of the pain caused by old age, field use, old injuries and general aches and pains.

Dog Massage helps to open blood vessels, which in turn improves blood circulation. Improved blood circulation means more oxygen and nutrients can be distributed throughout the dog's body. In addition, the stronger blood flow can push out more waste and toxins that may be making your dog sick. Regular dog massage also reduces on the stress on the heart and on the internal body organs. Arthritis in dogs is similar to that of what we as people feel.

The joints are stiff and often painful to bend and flex. And because of the pain caused by arthritis, the dog is likely to refrain from exercise and physical activity beyond what is necessary.

A regular dog massage helps to loosen constricted muscles, decrease pain, increase range-of-motion, and restore proper tone. If a dog’s muscles remain tight for a long time, a dog's body feels tension, stiffness, pain; less blood will be able to reach these muscles, and the dog may start to stand, walk and run using poor muscle strategies. A massage will release endorphins in your dog which act as a natural pain killer.

A massage can help to rebalance your dog’s energy and strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Many people are now hiring a masseuse for their dog's happiness.

Just like people, dogs gain pleasure from a massage. However not all dogs are suited to a massage. Some simply will not lay still for long, whilst others (in particular older dogs) could lie down all day and be massaged.

Whatever you decide, to do remember that if the condition of your dog is severe or there is a lot of pain, consult a professional dog massage therapist or your local vet for advice before proceeding with massaging your dog.
