Massage sessions take place in the comfort of our private studio, in your home, or at your barn. The massage sessions are tailored to your pet’s or horse’s individual needs. Each session typically includes Swedish massage, range of motion, stretching, acupressure and Manual Ligament Therapy®.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
A gentle technique that stimulates and improves the circulation of lymph fluid in the body and as such bolsters the efficiency of the immune system as a whole. MLD boosts the immune system making it an excellent technique for animals suffering from allergies, auto-immune disorders, pre- or post- surgery care, or pets on crate rest.
Manual Ligament Therapy®:
A non-invasive technique that uses ligaments to efficiently correct muscular imbalance and dysfunction. MLT reduces muscular hypertonicity, improves the quality of the ligament tissues, improves joint function, and increases range of motion. MLT improves proprioceptive patterns possibly compromised by injury; it helps to create more functional movement patterns and helps prevent future injury.
Is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to alleviate pain and restore motion.
