Massage is good for puppies, couch potatoes, athletes, and seniors alike. FITwell Massage complements your canine fitness program by addressing the entire dog and helping to maintain overall fitness.
Tight muscles have a reduced ability to perform correctly. They can pull joints out of alignment, resulting in other muscles having to compensate for the improperly functioning ones, thus making it more likely the dog will injure itself.

Canine Massage:

  • Reduces anxiety

  • Shortens healing time of strained muscles and sprained ligaments**

  • Aids in digestion

  • Fosters a feeling of well-being

  • Reduces pain and swelling (including intervertebral, joint, and muscle)**

  • Decreases blood pressure

  • Reduces formation of excessive scar tissue (less scar tissue buildup means better mobility)**

  • Reduces muscle spasms

  • Helps relieve muscle tension and stiffness

  • Provides greater joint flexibility and increases range of motion

  • Improves proprioception

  • Improves circulation of blood and movement of lymphatic fluids

  • Promotes deeper and easier breathing

  • Enhances health and nourishment of the skin and coat
