This strong, non-invasive therapy works by releasing tight sore muscles, removing trigger points (knots) and breaking down restrictive scar tissue all of which can impact on your dog’s daily living.

It provides an effective natural form of pain relief which is especially beneficial to dogs who are intolerant of NSAID’s (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), and helps to alleviate both acute and chronic mobility issues.
