Canine Strides Massage Therapy
We are a mobile service offering clinical canine massage and covering Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne and North Tyneside.
Clinical canine massage is a non-invasive, complementary therapy which helps to rehabilitate soft tissue and muscular injuries and also supports common orthopaedic conditions like arthritis.
It is suitable for dogs of all ages: active and sporting dogs recovering from lameness, some who are slowing down or seem stiff and old before their time, some with orthopaedic or neurological conditions and for pain management in senior and arthritic dogs. It’s not just those suffering from injuries that will benefit from massage. Maintaining the dog’s musculo-skeletal health reduces the chances of injury.
The kind of symptoms which canine massage therapy can be used to treat include:
- Struggling up or down stairs
- Difficulty getting in or out of the car
- Hopping or skipping on back legs
- Slowing down on walks
- Reluctance to be petted or groomed
- Changes in behaviour – grumpy, depressed
