按摩的好處

 

也會精神緊張和不安 (主人沒時間陪伴,沒足夠運動,少機會出外玩,等等) 按摩可非常有效地舒緩緊張情緒, 鍛鍊肌肉關節, 尤其對老狗和幼犬有益。

按摩可以使人鬆弛,於皮膚、神經系統、肌肉關節、血液及淋巴系統循環及中樞經都有很好的作用, 對狗其實也一樣:

 

l          改良狗毛: 按摩能使狗毛細管擴張、使皮脂分泌舒暢,更可使血液循環通暢,讓皮毛的營養得到充份的補給,因而使毛色澤光潤、富有彈性

l          鍛鍊肌肉關節: 按摩可以使狗肌肉僵硬的狀態鬆弛,並且可以促進肌肉血管暢通,對於關節韌帶彈性增加有所助益。除此之外,按摩更可鍛鍊肌肉,提高肌肉的張力及彈力,使肌肉被動的運動。

l          促進血液及淋巴系統循環作用:按摩使血管擴張,血流加快,組織中的血流量增加,血管擴張的同時,可直接減少血流的阻力,減輕心臟活動的負擔。在淋巴系統方面,由於按摩時會壓迫肌肉,間接會擠壓淋巴管,使淋巴液回流增快。

l          有助於情緒穩定:對於愛吠愛鬧、過度活躍、性情凶惡或膽小的狗而言,按摩可以安撫狗的情緒,讓狗情緒比較穩定。

l         使幼犬成長良好強壯 (因為撫觸啟動成長荷爾蒙的分泌)

l        釋放精神緊張及強化免疫系統 : 按摩後會降低狗體內的壓力激素(ACTH)。當狗遇上危險或緊張的時後,身體會產生壓力激素,相對的免疫能力反應被抑制,所以按摩使壓力激素下降的同時,也恢復了免疫能力反應,身體會更健康。

l        性格發展佳: 經過按摩的狗會比較有安全感及自信心,對人和其他狗也會有較好的關係,壓力容忍度增加,減低凶惡或破壞的行為

l        睡眠品質較佳: 利用白天狗清醒時幫他按摩,晚上狗比較好睡(睡得較深、較穩、較容易入睡)

Benefits of Aromatherapeutic Massage

Pet Massage: Not just a luxury item for your pet, but a way to promote a healthy physical and emotional well being. Just like humans, dogs can suffer from many of the same sprains and muscle problems that we experience.

 

The modern dog has stresses all of his own (less play, shorter walks, cramped quarters and less time with you). Please indulge that four-legged family member with a relaxing aromatherapeutic massage. Massage helps calm dogs, relaxes tense muscles and can alleviate pain from arthritis and stiff joints. It also creates a bonding experience that you’ll enjoy as much as your dog.

Massage has been shown to provide a multitude of benefits for companion animals. Following are just a few:

-Stimulates circulation by: defrosting frozen muscles, thereby releasing endorphins - the body's natural painkillers.
-Enhances muscle tone and range of motion.
-Helps to maintain the whole body in better physical condition.
-Creates a positive effect on the contractual and release process of the muscles...releasing tension...relaxing muscles.
-Promotes the healing process by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles, and aiding in carrying away excessive fluids and toxins.
-Reduces inflammation and swelling in the joints, thereby alleviating pain.
-Reduces stress and generalized anxiety.
-Promotes positive bond between the giver and the one being massaged.

 Warming botanicals & essential oils including arnica, rosemary and cinnamon leaf warm swollen joints to increase blood flow to the area being massaged and help to promote a restful sleep.
