Canine Acupressure

Acupressure, on it's own, can address a multitude of common issues that our dogs face everyday and unlike acupuncture, acupressure uses no needles. While acupressure pairs very well with massage, understandably not every dog is a candidate for massage.  In such cases, we can use acupressure to address a variety of issues. From strengthening the immune system, allergies and itchy skin, aging and much more, every dog can benefit from regular acupressure sessions. Acupressure creates balance and balance creates health. Below are just some of the common issues that can be addressed using acupressure.





Immune System Strengthening Acupressure


Many things can challenge our immune systems and this hold true for our pets as well. Unfortunately, toxins are everywhere, even the most unsuspecting places.  From the cleaners we use in our homes or fertilizers and pesticides when we take our dogs out for a walk, there is just no escaping them. Even necessary surgeries and vaccinations can be a blow to the healthiest animals, compromising the immune system. Along with professional veterinary care, regular Immune System Strengthening sessions using acupressure can go a long way to help support the health and well being of your dog.


Acupressure for Seniors


Are you noticing your dog slowing down a bit? Maybe she's not wanting to play as much as she once did or maybe it takes her a little more time to get up than it once did or do you notice that she's sleeping more?  These are all normal signs of aging and because we love our animals so much it's difficult to watch them slowing down. While we can't reverse the aging process, acupressure for seniors is an effective way to increase chi and blood circulation and improve your dog's vitality.
