Medical Massage for Dogs | Dr. Narda Robinson

Massage health benefits can apply to your dog too! Learn the science of how massage helps dogs relax and feel better.


Massage isn’t just about relaxation – it’s so much more. Dr. Narda Robinson is a doctor twice over, and has done massage therapy for both humans and dogs. She explains how massage is all about knowing the anatomy of the being you are working on and paying attention to what you feel with your hands and what your patient tells you.

When is medical massage a good choice for dogs? It can directly benefit patients who are experiencing pain, trauma, anxiety, or even digestion issues. Chronic stress and pain cause a lot of negative changes in the body, and massage can help to relieve that physical and mental discomfort and help get your dog back to feeling good and enjoying their life.
