Canine Structure Balancing is an alternative natural healing modality combines my expertise and experience with Canine Massage, Veterinary Myo-Fascial Release Tecnique, and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation.
A quick assessment is done first with light massage friction strokes administered throughout the dog’s body.
This is to see how much pain and or discomfort the patient is in before beginning the treatment.
Veterinary Orthopedic manipulation is the non manual technique for adjusting your pet. Ray will also palpate and massage your dog notating any movements on the spine, muscles, and skin during this treatment.
This technique uses a hand held device called a vetrostim. This tool will stimulate each vertebral segment down the entire spine.
Ray will monitor for any reflexes throughout procedure which can indicate neurological impairment.
This is then followed with the Veterinary Myo-Fascial Release. This technique releases soft tissue restrictions that can lead to altered bony alignment throughout the spine.
For adjusting your pet and performing myo-fascial release we use the vetrostim. The vetrostim fires rapid pulsesto specific areas all along the spine.
The vetrostim and its application in Veterinary Myo-Fascial Release is the future of muscular therapy in the domestic animal.
After the second stage of Canine Structure Balancing we know conclude with a full body therapeutic relaxation massage.
Some stretching exercises will be evaluated to see for improvement in range of motion in forelegs, rear legs, and spinal mobility.
