Canine Massage & Bodywork


Proper stretching is a key component of myo-manipulative therapy and is usually done after every massage unless we are working on something different with your dog

™AnMy training under Dr. Angelique Barbara, a Doctor of Chiropractic who holds additional degrees in Veterinary Science (B.S.), Equine Science (Minor) and Veterinary Pathobiology (M.S.), has given me widespread and distinguished knowledge in canine myo-manipulative therapy. This training has allowed me to approach massage and bodywork techniques from a canine physiological perspective while utilizing my previous holistic wellness work with dogs.

There are so many benefits when it comes to canine massage therapy. Whether you are seeking proactive therapy for your dog, needing maintenance care or sports massage for an adult dog, or palliative care for an aging dog – the advantages of this therapy are extensive.

In my massage therapy and bodywork practice, I utilize a wide range of techniques to address a number of common issues pet parents might be having with their dog. Myo-fascial release, Swedish massage, TMJ, acupressure, Gua Sha, stretch work, and light therapy – all integrative modalities your dog can benefit from depending on what is needed to ensure your dog is living his or her best, happiest and healthy life. I have also developed an integrative technique, Animal AromaPressure™ that combines the safe use of aromatherapy and acupressure which is also available to your dog.
