What can natural therapies help with ?
One of the main benefits is in managing the effects of stress on the mind and body. This applies to both animals and people, with recent research showing that our animal friends mirror our stress levels causing many negative effects on their own health, well being and ‘behaviour’.
In general, therapies have been shown to: Release endorphins• Release muscle spasm • Improve removal of waste • Reduce pain perception Promote blood flow • Enhance mental clarity & focus • Relax and comfort• Help to calm nervous dogs • Speed up healing of injuries • Support the body’s immune system • Release natural chemicals to reduce swelling….
Sharing non verbal communication via therapies, that both the human and animal body/mind system understands and responds to, can create a deep healing bond between you and your pet.
