Our Areas of Expertise

We're no one-trick ponies. Our mastery of various specialties is what puts us at the forefront of animal massage therapy knowledge.

Massage Therapy and Sports Massage

We apply classic Swedish massage techniques to stimulate blood and lymph circulation, utilizing deeper sports massage techniques to identify and address potential issues, like spasms or scar tissue.

Myofascial Release and Stretching

Releasing muscular compensations and stretching your animal's joints and ligaments are an important part of their physical care and help maintain balance, proper gait, and good range of motion.

Reiki and Energy Work

The physical care of your animal is important, but their well-being is also related to their energy balance. We take a holistic approach to our care and combine different modalities for the best results.
