Why Massage?

Massage is not a substitute for medical veterinary care, but rather a complement to it. As a holistic practice, massage considers the entire animal even when addressing a single issue. Along with regular veterinary visits, massage is a proactive therapy that addresses future health issues and also helps with certain problems your pet may already have.
