What is Bodywork?


Canine bodywork is a specialized form of manual & energetic therapy aimed at improving the physical and emotional health of our canine companions. Hands on techniques are designed to address musculoskeletal issues, promote relaxation, and enhance mobility. 


One of the key elements of canine bodywork is its connection to fascia. Fascia is a complex network of connective tissue that surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve & organ in the body. It plays a crucial role in providing structural support, facilitating movement, and transmitting forces between different parts of the body.

In dogs, just like in humans, the fascial system can become tight, restricted, or imbalanced due to various factors such as injury, overuse, poor posture, stress & trauma. When the fascia becomes dysfunctional, it can lead to a range of issues including pain, stiffness, decreased range of motion, and compromised movement patterns.


Canine bodywork targets the fascial system by using techniques such as myofascial release, craniosacral techniques, stretching, massage, and joint mobilization. These techniques help to release adhesions, break up scar tissue, improve circulation, and restore optimal function to the fascia. By addressing fascial restrictions and imbalances, canine bodywork can alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall comfort.

If that's not enough for you, the fascial system is interconnected with other systems in the body, including the nervous system and the lymphatic system. By influencing the fascia, canine bodywork can also have indirect effects on these systems, promoting relaxation, reducing stress, and supporting immune function.

The connection between canine bodywork and fascia highlights the importance of addressing the underlying soft tissue structures in order to promote optimal health and mobility in dogs. By understanding and working with the fascial system, as a canine bodywork practitioner, I can provide targeted and effective care to help  your dogs live happier, healthier lives.
