Why Do Dogs Need Massage???

Dogs get stressed…and their bodies have ailments just like ours do!   But they don’t have a way to relieve the stress or pain…Massage benefits the whole body; it releases toxins trapped in tight muscles, therefore relaxing the muscle.  


Massage also aids in the detoxification of chemicals which your dog’s body produces to deal with stress, and positively affects the various body systems (circulatory, lymphatic, etc).
