Animal Massage is part of a holistic approach to your animal's health care. It is a gentle and non-invasive therapy which can relieve pain and stress and is a great way to maintain your animal's health and well-being. Massage has been practiced for thousands of years on people, and in more recent years, people have realized how beneficial massage can be for animals.
Tui Na is a form of massage utilizing acupressure or acupuncture points and other areas of the body which has been practiced for over 3000 years. The hands-on Chinese medicine techniques are used to restore balance of blood (nourishing body fluids) and chi (life-promoting energy) within the body. Animals are highly responsive to Tui Na techniques which include pressing, pushing, rubbing, kneading, pounding, rolling, grasping, holding, vibrating, and manual body manipulations.
