Benefits of Massaging Your Schnauzer

Besides being relaxing, a therapeutic massage offers many other benefits to your Miniature Schnauzer including:

  1. early detection of potential health problems: During the process of a canine massage (and when performed on a routine basis) early detection of physical changes to your Schnauzer's body are easily noticed. You will be in-tune with your Schnauzer's body and therefore be able to detect something (like a lump) developing in its early stages that may need medical attention.
  2. increases blood circulation which keeps oxygen and nutrients flowing to the body's cells, as well as helps to remove toxins from the body.
  3. minimizes aches and pains by putting gentle pressure on key acupressure points of the body and helps to keeps joints lubricated.
  4. lowers blood pressure
  5. alleviates constipation by stimulating blood flow and promoting intestinal motility
  6. soothes away fears and encourages relaxation
  7. strengthens the bond between you and your dog and lots, lots more!
