Welcome to Canine Massage in Naples!

Massage for my dog? Really?

Absolutely! Animal massage has been used in the United States since the mid-70’s when a professional sports therapist from the NFL began using human massage techniques on the equine members of the US equestrian team.  Seeing the health and performance benefits, it wasn’t long before equestrians started requesting massage for their dogs as well as their horses.

Why massage?

Like human massage, canine massage enhances a dog’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.  It promotes circulation, oxygenation, muscle tone, digestion, skin tone and overall wellness. Massage stimulates acupressure points which re-balance organs and energy throughout the body.

Massage can greatly enhance your dog’s emotional health. It can help with depression, fear, separation anxiety, trauma, shyness and aggression. To learn how massage can help your dog go to our benefits of canine massage page.
