Benefits Your Pet Will Receive From Massage Therapy

Everyone loves a good massage. Have you ever thought about pursuing a massage for your pet? Massage therapy for pets is increasing in popularity as part of a regular pet care routine and it offers many benefits for your furry friend. This is especially true for senior pets and pets recovering from injury or surgery. Our team at Pawsitive Strides Veterinary Rehabilitation and Therapy in Des Moines is experienced in pet massage therapy and would love to share their talent with your companion. 

What is Pet Massage Like, and Who Can it Help?

Massage therapy for pets includes the use of strategic pressure to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. Great for athletes, massage increases blood supply to joints, muscles, and nerves; stimulates circulation; and can even help prevent injury and post-workout soreness. Stimulating endorphin release, massage assists in the alleviation of pain.  

Massage therapy can help speed up the recovery process while reducing discomfort and assisting in re-injury prevention. Additionally, massaging the body can release tension and relaxes many patients.
