"M" - Massage and manual therapy (按摩和徒手療法) - a component of physiotherapy

For massage and Manual therapy, we use our magic hands.

Wednesday 16th May 2018

As a therapist I use a lot of different techniques for stretching, joint movements and mobilisations to help improve the pet’s comfort. Massaging itself incorporates different techniques such as effleurage and petrissage.  But I love massaging dogs and watching their little faces show relief, relax and sometimes sleep and then next time I see them I get a big tail wag greeting and that’s what makes my job awesome.

按摩和徒手療法是物理治療常用手法。動物和人一樣會有肌肉使用過度導致疲勞及酸痛,按摩和徒手療法能又效放鬆和舒緩肌肉。有時狗狗甚至會在治療期間睡覺,而且每次都非常歡迎我們的到來。有人因此笑稱我們有魔術手。
