Welcome fellow dog lovers!
I started Happiness 4 Dogs LLC in honor of my dog Emma AKA Happiness. As she started to age and had issues with her knees, then a cervical spinal issue, loss of hearing and decreased vision I wanted to find a way to help Keep her comfortable and to maintain her quality of life. She is now 13 ½ years old and stills has her puppy like zest for life. She and I have traveled this journey together and we have learned a lot along the way. I look forward to sharing the skills I have learned with you and your dogs.
As in human massage, canine massage incorporates Swedish massage, acupressure, myofascial release, stretching and Gua Sha techniques. A typical canine massage session can last between 15 minutes to an hour depending on the size of the dog, the type of work needed and how the dog does with the session. Dogs with lameness, arthritis, CCL and Iliopsoas injuries, Weekend Warrior soreness, and stress all benefit from Massage as well as K9 athletes.
25 years ago, I started as a Licensed Massage Therapist my practice specialized in Pre-Natal massage, Infant Massage Instruction for new parents and energy work. For human massage I studied, Swedish, Myofascial release and unwinding, cranial sacral, pre-natal and infant massage and Reiki.
