Why Canine Massage?

Touch creates change in the body both physiologically and energetically.

Studies at the Center for Animal Wellness at the University of Missouri have shown that touch creates beneficial changes in neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine, reduces production of stress hormones, and has positive effects on the cardiovascular system.

At Canine Massage of the Rockies LLC, we offer exceptional in-home canine massage based on extensive training in anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and pathology of dogs. We combine this knowledge with breed-specific tendencies, gait analysis, and a detailed health history to individualize massage for every dog we see. But most importantly, we comfort and we connect.

Massage is NEVER a substitute for veterinary care! If you have ANY questions about your dog’s health, contact your vet immediately!
