Pet Massage

Technician with cat


Pet massage therapy is a gentle, relaxing technique that is based on the application of compassionate touch, positional release, gentle fascia release, acupressure, and energy balancing. Our Pet Massage treatments can help reduce pain and stress in your pet, and we can even show you a few simple techniques that you can do at home as well. A pet massage is a great way to bond with your pet while improving their quality of life!
