Giving your dog a deep tissue massage can have many benefits for him. You don't need to be a massage therapist to do the job. Daily massages can help keep Robbie's muscles more relaxed and his blood circulating more freely. You can use deep tissue massage to help relieve sprains and strains, relieve the pain of arthritis, improve a number of body functions such as the lymphatic fluids, the stimulation of many organs, and help his body to rid itself of numerous toxins. An added advantage to giving Robbie a full body deep tissue massage has been found to improve a dog's immune system.
Just about everyone loves getting a full body deep tissue massage, but what about Robbie? What are the odds he will enjoy one? Well, if you do it right, he will enjoy it just as much as you do. The best way to get him used to a deep tissue massage is to start out with more gentle massages until he is used to them and then increase the "intensity" over time.
There are many benefits to giving Robbie a regular deep tissue massage, ranging from easing sore muscles to helping reduce the pain of arthritis. It can also help with circulation, organ function, and more. It is a wonderful way for you to spend time with your pup and a great way for the two of you to bond. Remember to start out gently and finish the same way if you want to achieve the best results. Robbie will thank you for it!
