Canine Massage Therapy Clinic supports dogs in Scotland and puts the spring back in their step.

Clinical Canine Massage uses a blend of 4 styles of massage combined with Advanced Canine Anatomy. This produces a non-invasive remedial treatment designed to ease the pain of a muscular or soft tissue injury. It also promotes rehabilitation and flexibility, while improving the overall health and well-being of your dog.

Clinical Canine Massage is a vet-approved complementary therapy that offers drug-free pain relief and improved mobility for dogs across Scotland.

Your K9 Massage Clinic therapist is skilled in advance palpation which means they can ‘see’ what is hidden beneath the fur with their fingers, and can detect debilitating soft tissue injuries which do not show up on x-rays or MRIs.

During the palpation they will examine the superficial muscles and tendons, searching for Strains, Sprains, Trigger Points and areas of Wide-Radiating Myofascial Pain, as they try to identify the source of your dog’s mobility issues and assess how best to improve them.

Please visit the Treatment page for more information on what you can expect during your dog’s Canine Massage Therapy session.

Canine Massage Therapy also supports dogs with orthopaedic issues, like hip dysplasia or arthritis, by improving the health and flexibility of muscles and tendons that have to work harder due to a joint weakness.

This extra workload creates areas of overcompensation to muscles and limbs causing injury to them, further exacerbating your dog’s mobility issues.

For a greater understanding of some of the muscular, orthopaedic and neurological conditions supported by Clinical Canine Massage Therapy, and the sort of improvements you could expect to see, please visit our Conditions page.

Canine Massage: where and when?

K9 Massage Clinic is based in Central Scotland within easy reach of most areas. Currently, we hold clinics in Stirling on most days and now also offer regular clinics in Forfar & Montrose, West Calder, near Coupar Angus in Perthshire and now in Stow in the Borders.

I have opened Facebook groups to share dates and make appointments, so I encourage you to join one if you are a FB user. If not, then give me a call to find out when the next day is.

We hope to have a clinic near you soon. Please register your interest if you would like a regular clinic in your area click YES and state your area.

Would your dog benefit from canine massage therapy?
Does your dog suffer from arthritis and is on prescription NSAIDs like metacam or loxicom?

Dogs do their best to hide any pain or injury so as not to be seen as the weak member of our pack.

As a result, you may not know your dog is in pain until it has become too much for them to be able to conceal any longer.

Symptoms of pain may manifest as:
Limping, unable to fully weight bear on one or more legs
Having difficulty jumping on / off the sofa or into the car
Character changes, grumpy with people or dogsCanine massage benefits dogs in Scotland. Contact K9 Massage Clinic

Problems getting up or lying down
No longer keen to go for a walk

It is possible to see improvements in all the areas listed and many more. Please visit our page entitled: Benefits of Clinical Canine Massage for a more detailed account of the results you can hope to achieve with Canine Massage Therapy.

Dogs give us so much – let’s do what we can to ease their pain and put the spring back in their step.
