Ki9 Connection - shiatsu for dogs.
A gentle holistic therapy

Ki9 Connection improves your connection with your dog helping you to become aware of your dog's body and any changes can be identified in an early stage.  It also raises body awareness inn the dog developing a great connection between dog and owner.

Shiatsu touch uses gentle firm touch to release fascia and relax muscles also uses assisted stretches of joints to allow synovial fluid to flow freely.  The touch and relaxation of the soft tissue allows the dog's body to release endorphins, the body's own pain relief that also creates feelings of wellbeing and assists the healing process.

Ki9 Connection is a complementary therapy working with conventional treatments and is not a substitute for veterinary advice.  It does support the dog's physical and emotional wellbeing, brings relief to arthritic joints and muscle tension.  It helps our older dogs by improving those stiff joints and for our youg dogs helping them to cope with the active lives they lead.

Connection is the 'key' we work with dogs never restrain or muzzle them
it is based on ancient theories and practices of Chinese Medicine
It is gentle, non-invasive always being aware of the dogs - connected
