Canine Shiatsu


Shiatsu is gaining more and more fame as a beneficial health care system for people. Now Shiatsu is also available for dogs.

The dog has always been man's best friend and occupies a large place in our society and in our lives.

He is not only a faithful companion for us, but also a living being in itself with impressive cognitive and physical skills. We ask him not only to be part of our lives and protect us, but also to fill our free time and listen to our grief. Professionally, dogs are also increasingly called upon because they have good hearing, an exceptional sense of smell and efficient agility. All those abilities are superior to those of the people they help.

As part of his own personal development, we sometimes ask him to perform exceedingly physical, such as in personal protection, hunting and sport. These activities often require special attention, an impeccable physical condition and a stable character. 

The dog is also often the mirror of his owner. He listens to our grief and participates in our joy. It is therefore not uncommon for the dog to have the same physical and emotional problems as the people around him. He relieves us of our emotions. That is why dogs deserve that we take care of them.

Canine shiatsu helps to restore our dog's energy balance. The result is a more balanced character. Dogs who perform different physical tasks experience an improvement in their performance and recover faster after heavy exertion. Canine shiatsu is excellent as an accompanying treatment for medical measures, the dog will recover faster after injury or illness.

The practice of dog shiatsu is a respectful way of dealing with the dog. The shiatsu practitioner listens and adapts to the needs and characters of each individual dog.
