Reflexology for dogs and other alternative treatments

Reflexology for dogs

reflexology for dogsThe main parts of the reflexology for dogs are their paws, the face and mainly their ears. This is where all the energy points hit each other, which bear on the several body parts and organs.

The reflexology stimulates both the blood flow and the metabolism.

Even for diagnostic procedures, the sensibility of the several ear energy points is very significant.

Reflexology for dogs is very popular to be used for managing pain and diseases, but also against/for emotional and behavioural disorders. The tip of the ear is the most important point in an emergency situation such as a shock.

Jin Shin Jyutsu – Japanese balance flow

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient art of harmonizing the life energy in the body rediscovered by Master Jiro Murai in the early 20’s. His student Mary Burmeister brought his knowledge to the United States and through her students today it is known world wide. Jin Shin Jyutsu is a soft but very effective healing method, whose foundation is based on the 26 energy points. These energy points can lead to blockades in the body for various reasons like living conditions, lifestyle, poor nutrition or stress. The japanese healing flow is a holistic therapy method, which can revitalize the energy flow by laying the hands on the right energy points and therefore unify body, mind and soul in harmony. This process also known as „The Flow“ has a relaxing effect, promotes the overall well-being and provides your inner harmony and serenity. Dogs enjoy the inner warmth and end the therapy session most of the time on their own/by themselves by leaving the place full with energy. A benefit of this therapy is that the owner can also exert this treatment anytime at home.



The acupressure is a technique of traditional chinese medicine. This technique is different from acupuncture. Instead of stimulating the energy points by needles, it is stimulated by pressure. In the TCM humans and animals are classified into different types with their particular characteristics, which is helpful for the selection of the therapy. The owner can absolutely perform the acupressure itself/himself. It is recommended as with any treatment to choose a relaxing and stress-free time for a therapy session.

Meridian massage

Meridians are energy pathways in the body which vital energy is said to flow.

There are twelve main meridians in TCM on each side of the body which are believed to correspond to an organ.

Meridian massage Meridians are energy pathways in the body which vital energy is said to flow. There are twelve main meridians in TCM on each side of the body which are associated to an organ/functional circle and time, when the energy at intervals of two hours flows especially intensive.

This circle is divided into three convolutions:

  1. Circulation = lung-colon-stomach-milt

  2. Circulation = heart-small bowel-bladder-kidney

  3. Circulation = pericard- 3heater -gall bladder-liver

In contrast to the acupressure with this treatment you don’t just stimulate the acupuncture points but the whole meridian gets stimulated with a metal rod.

Important are the skin movements arising in the one and a half rotations and consistently repeated sit up. The Tellington Touch releases tensions, eases pain, strengthens circulation and accelerates the healing process. Also contusions, bruises, being in the state of a shock and many other disorders are improved by the Tellington Touch.
