What is Canine Sports Massage Therapy?

Canine Sports Massage Therapy(CSMT) is the therapeutic treatment of hands-on deep tissue techniques to the voluntary muscle system. -

                                                Benefits are:

• increasing circulation                                              enhancing muscle tone

• reducing muscle spasms                                          promoting healing

• increasing range of motion all breeds of dogs          •  relieving tension

What kind of demand is there for canine massage therapy, and is the therapy “transferable” to other companion animals?


Every dog owner and trainer – whether they own or work with dogs involved in competition (Greyhounds, Huskies, etc.), in law enforcement, in aiding the handicapped, or whether they have dogs just as family pets – wants, and in many instances, needs their canines to be free of muscle problems that can cause pain and inhibit their dogs’ movement and performance.
Because of the health-promoting qualities of massage, as well as its restorative properties, knowledgeable owners and trainers are incorporating this therapy as an integral part of their dogs’ total and continuous health care program.
The therapy is certainly transferable – by virtue of its generally universal effectiveness and similarity of technique – to other companion animals, such as cats.
