THAI DOG MASSAGE
About Thai Dog Massage
Thai massage is one of the oldest Eastern therapies, aimed at balancing different parts of the body to facilitate the unhindered flow of stagnant energy. It is utilized to harmonize the elements of the body that may be obstructed.
Thai massage provides relief from pain, induces relaxation, enhances lymph and blood circulation, and strengthens the body’s immune system.
When the body is in a healthy state, life energy flows smoothly, but any injury or weakness can disrupt this natural flow. Typically, this form of treatment complements other therapies.
I incorporate Thai massage along with Swedish massage.
Thai massage does not occupy the entire session time, so I typically combine it with Swedish massage, using it as a relaxation method following a warm-up and workout. For optimum results, I suggest a maximum of 1 session per week. However, for a regularly active dog, 2-3 sessions per month are enough.
In contrast to Swedish massage, which targets muscles and joints, Thai massage centers on energy lines and energy points.
Energy lines and energy points are vital elements in Thai massage.
The energy lines consist of two even lines along the spine, a central line on the spine, and three distinct energy lines on the limbs. The energy points are situated on the limbs, and we focus on these points when addressing issues in their immediate vicinity.
These lines create an intricate network that reaches every cell in the body, forming a connected system.
Thai massage is particularly effective for paralyzed dogs. By enhancing circulation to the immobilized part of the body and stimulating the flow of energy through activation points on the meridians, we infuse life force into the paralyzed limb.
"Spot is 9 years old, and although he is not currently showing any significant mobility difficulties or pain, I know that old age joint disease can slowly set in, so Petra visits us a few times a month to keep him exercised. Spot really enjoys it and after the sessions he visibly has more energy. I want to keep him in good health as long as possible, so we will definitely continue his treatment. She and Spot seem to love each other."
"My Meck doggy had knee surgery years ago. He recovered nicely, but the doctors told me that the problem could return at any time, so I had to be very careful and watchful. Try to maintain this condition with regular exercise. I found Petra, who massages him regularly and works on him with different gymnastic exercises to strengthen his muscles - maintain his stamina, so he's in amazing shape Meck as a youngster. I would recommend her to all dog owners, she is skilful and understands the language of dogs!"
"I had realized that my dog is limbing so I took her to the vet who said start of arthritis and her joints were tight. ...then I started surfing the net and regular massage was recommended everywhere. Then I heard about Petra, so I went to see her. My loved one really enjoys her treatments, she starts with a kiss and she loves every session. She is in great shape now ...."
"Me and Pepper always look forward to meeting Petra. Pepper is a perfectly healthy, perfectly fit large poodle dog who needs lots of exercise. Even though he walks several times a day, he never runs out of energy, so Petra visits us 1x a week with her balance equipment to strengthen his skills during an intense workout. She always looks forward to the next session."
"I have heard a lot of good things about Petra from people I know, so I decided to give it a try. Because of my job, Luna is at home a lot, she doesn't get much high intensity exercise and is a bit overweight. The doctor says that with this lifestyle, she is likely to develop joint pains prematurely. She and Petra are doing a variety of treatments, which she does with great enthusiasm, always giving her a big kiss when she sees her... I'm glad that my partner and I found her, Luna's condition has obviously changed a lot."
"Petra is an excellent dog masseuse and has a super sense of finding a voice with dogs. I am very grateful to her for helping my dog. She had a severe knee sprain that had to be medically reset. She was in severe pain for a while holding her leg up, she could not put it down. She's walking on it now, use that blade. I'm sure I'll be inviting Petra for birthday massages after the treatment is over:) I sincerely recommend her to everyone."
