Post surgical recovery. Muscles, joints, tendons, they can all suffer trauma or go into shock. I release the tension in them so they are capable of going back to their natural state. This helps speed up recovery after surgery.
Excessive licking or chewing. Animals will often obsessively lick anywhere that hurts, even if the pain is internal. A pinched nerve or sore muscle can send spasms down a limb. This is often mistaken for allergies as the animal licks hair off or irritates the skin-and it looks like an allergic reaction. I can realign things so they’re no longer getting those spasms.
Behavioural issues. I have worked on animals who were noise aggressive, only to find they have a sore neck or back that hurts when they react to the sound. Fixing the sore body part has fixed the ‘noise reactivity’.
Incontinence. Whether the issue is constipation or loose bowel motions, I have had great results with regulating the gastrointestinal system. I’ve had some improvement with urine incontinence on some dogs.
Oedema. Jump starting the lymphatic system by unblocking it and reminding it which way it has to go to drain is effective in reducing and often eliminating swelling.
Skin infections. When the body is clogged up internally, it often presents with symptoms externally. I have helped clear up long term skin infections by unclogging their internal systems. This means the formerly ineffective medications can get to where they are needed.
Increase range of motion. If your animal can’t extend their legs or turn either direction, it can make their movement uncomfortable. I reset the parts of their bodies that need it, and stretch the parts that need it so they can take full strides, turn comfortably, and stretch.
Abscesses. Again with the internal blockages, the body wants to get the toxins out, but is blocked internally. Opening pathways inside helps the body move and excrete the waste products, rather than pocketing them somewhere.
Preventative care. I have clients with tears in anterior cruciate ligaments. I see a Maltese terrier around every eight months, and a Rottweiler every six months. Both have avoided surgery for over two years. I also have clients whose dogs show no physical symptoms, yet move more freely after a treatment.
General mobility. Resetting the body helps it remember how it is supposed to work, instead of how it has been moving while trying to avoid or decrease pain.
Any health issues require attention by a vet. Once a vet has been seen, contact me to start a treatment plan.
