What Is Canine & Equine Bodywork?

Why animal bodywork? Bodywork involves a broader scope of techniques and understanding than the average animal massage therapist. It incorporates breath-work, energy work and modalities that incorporate the brain’s relationship and responses to the body, such as Bowen Therapy and kinesiology tape.

Lil saw massage as a way to ease the animal’s job and help extend their career through caring touch. As she developed her craft, Lil found that building a relationship with a dog or a horse through massage wasn’t just a way to encourage relaxation, but also a vital part of an animal’s wellness program. It can be a way to support training techniques and to build communication between animals and their people, with the right tools in your kit.

Interested in Learning to Massage Your Own Animals?
Are you trying to build muscle, improve range of motion, correct poor muscle development, or correct poor training habits? Frequent bodywork is an excellent way to correct the tightness that can prevent your dog or horse from fully becoming the rock star they are meant to be. It allows an open channel of communication that gives consistent feedback about imbalances or ailments that you should be aware of.

A skilled practitioner that handles your animal frequently is often able to help you stay ahead of ailments that may cause inconvenient delays to training or rehab programs. Even better if you are also able to massage between appointments!

PET MASSAGE SERVICES

My goal with my horse Abel is to keep him comfortable and enjoying his work. Lily’s services have kept him moving freely and fluidly during his dressage and jumping riders. He is relaxed, focused, and comfortable in his skin! I’ve noticed an improved range of motion and flexibility since keeping with a regular, therapeutic program with Lily. He always falls into a deep state of relaxation during sessions, which tells me how much he enjoys time with “Aunt Lil!” I would recommend integrating The Vital Horse and Hound into part of your horses’ overall wellness routine.

Hannah Flannery, I would recommend for an overall wellness routine!

Lilly and her massage therapy has been amazing for my senior horse Elvis. I can tell if he hasn’t had a session with her in a few days. He’s really stiff and moving slowly. Not eating as well and in general not as comfortable as I would like for him to be. So I now keep him on a regular schedule with her. It makes his life better! Thanks Lilly!!

Kim F, Arena Sports Massage offers a great service!

Lillian is incredible. Her dedication to and focus on rescue animals, is inspiring. Both of our rescues had behavioral challenges and Lillian made a significant impact. Better than any trainer out there!

My horse loves Lil’s therapeutic work. She dotes on all of the animals that she comes in contact with and they show their appreciation of her time, touch, and attention!

Comment: Thank you! You have such a great crew. It’s always my pleasure to work with them.

Melissa Spell Deal, Recommended Service!
