Canine Bowen Therapy and Dog Massage

At Suppawtive Health Solutions we recognise that each pet is different and have their own specific needs. Their lifestage, lifestyle and breed plays an important part in determining their nutritional, physical and emotional health requirements. When it comes to illness, every illness has a cause, which maybe due to physical, mental or emotional issues. We are trained to take a holistic approach to assessing the physical, emotional and mental health of your pet and advise natural therapies individualised to your pet that includes massage, nutrition, conditioning, herbal remedies and flower essences. We assess and treat the whole animal, and not just signs of illness.

Please note we do not provide a medical diagnosis and recommend you seek veterinary assistance for diagnosis of any health condition

Three types of service

We offer individual bodywork treatments, private conditioning training appointments and holistic well-being packages which includes nutritional, herbal advice and remedies tailored to your pets specific needs. Please phone us to book an appointment. All consultations are conducted in our beautiful clinic which is nestled in 2.5 acres of bushland. Clients are welcome to stroll through the bushland after a consult and enjoy the peaceful surrounds. It is also an ideal opportunity for your dog to walk around and experience the smells of the bushland which is great for their mental stimulation.

If you receive our voicemail please leave a message and we will return your call. Emails will be answered within 24 hours except on weekends and public holidays.

Well-being Follow-up Online/Phone Consults

Online/phone consultations are available to customers after the first well-being. This is because it is extremely important that we assess your pet ourselves to understand its physical and mental health to ensure we identify the correct treatment plan for your individual pets needs. Online consults are conducted over Skype, Zoom or phone. We will also require you to take photos of your dog or cat and send them through to us prior to the consult so we can see the continuing physical health of your pet.

An updated diet/treatment plan may be emailed to you following the consult.  Please allow 2-3 days to receive the report. A follow-up consult is recommended every 4 weeks to ensure that the dietary plan is working for your pet and make any adjustments necessary.

Bodywork - Laser, Myofunctional Massage and Bowen Therapy

Canine massage

Bowen Therapy and Myofunctional massage are effective therapeutic techniques used to prevent and assist healing of musculoskeletal conditions and acute injuries. It is recommended for dogs of all ages but is especially advised for senior dogs, dogs with degenerative conditions such as hip dysplasia and arthritis, post-operative recovery, performance and working dogs. We use a combination of gentle techniques and therapeutic equipment (laser, TENS, red light wraps) to improve circulation, muscle elasticity, restore muscle function, reduce pain and promote healing. 

 

During the appointment we demonstrate how to safely stretch your dog’s limbs and the clinic is setup to provide appropriate basic conditioning exercises suitable for your dog.

Fitness & Conditioning

Canine conditioning exercises

A dog needs strong muscles for physical health and injury prevention. A strong musculature helps stabilise and protect the joints, bones and spine. Conditioning and fitness training is a workout for your dog that enlists exercises to improve muscle mass and strength; as well as build your dog's fitness level, flexibility and body awareness.

Conditioning and fitness programmes focus on the maintenance, restoration and promotion of optimal physical function of a dog's body throughout it's life.

Conditioning and fitness exercises are specialised exercises customised to your pets individual physical needs and capabilities. The exercises will depend on the age, capabilities, structure, fitness level and health status of your dog. All dogs, regardless of age and health status benefit from conditioning exercises.
