What Is Clinical Canine Massage?

Having trained for 2 years, Angela Day of Born to Run Canine Massage a Canine Massage Guild member performs Clinical Canine Massage; a comprehensive system unlike any other.

It utilises Direct & Indirect Myofascial Release, Remedial Sports Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Swedish Massage. What really sets this type of massage apart from others is the Lenton Method™; a set of direct myofascial release protocols designed specifically to suit the dogs’ anatomy, Body-mapping which is where the practitioner learns common areas of muscular injury, myofascial pain and active trigger points and a systematic and scientific palpation routine which assesses muscles from complete origin and insertion to fibre direction.

Clinical Canine Massage involves assessment, manipulation and movement of the muscles and fascia to resolve or manage pain and dysfunction related to Soft Tissue Injury and to address the Protective Splinting of Muscles that occurs with Orthopaedic Issues.

The focus of Clinical Canine Massage is to work with Veterinary Diagnosed conditions to rehabilitate muscular dysfunction which cause pain, restrict range of motion, inhibit movement and affect posture.

We work with Vets and Owners to assist in effective Pain Management and the rehabilitation of Muscular Dysfunction, Clinical Lameness and Signs of Subclinical Pain.

Quite simply there is nothing else like it. Let the results speak for themselves.
