Doggo can feel tired and drained from the stress of long working hours. Find out how acupressure can help your dog feel more positive.
What is Acupressure?
Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Acupressure uses massage to stimulate your dog’s immune system. They use the same pressure points as acupuncture but don’t have to worry about those scary needles.
Dog Pressure Points
There are more than 150 pressure points in dogs’ bodies. However, not all of them are used in vet offices. Acupressure points can be found in the ears, face, sides, ears, wrists and wrists. Acupressure sessions are beneficial for overall wellbeing, but some sessions may be able to treat specific symptoms or ailments.
Benefits of Acupressure
Acupressure can help with some problems your dog may have, such as anxiety, pain, arthritis, or other conditions. Acupressure can be particularly helpful for senior citizens by giving them an extra boost of energy.
It has been proven that dogs who are calm and relaxed when they massage the pressure points on their heads can be less anxious and irritable. Relax your dog by massaging the acupressure points between your dog’s front legs and her inside. Who doesn’t want to be able to help?
Trouble with your stomach? Tummy troubles? A massage can be a great way to make your pet a more comfortable rider if she gets sick on car rides.
There is nothing worse than watching our dogs in pain. Acupressure can also be helpful, thank you dog. Depending on the type and severity of your pain, you can massage different points to relieve it. For example, stimulating pressure points near the base of your spine can help relieve back pain. Massage points below the front legs can help make your feet feel lighter. This can also be helpful in relieving pain from chronic diseases like arthritis or cancer.
