Muscle Angels® for Pets is a patented, all-in-one pet therapy now being endorsed by equine massage therapists and canine massage therapists for its preventative and rehabilitative benefits (see Equine Wellness Magazine, Dec 2011 issue, for more details).

Trigger Point massage facilitates increased circulation, mobility and flexibily.

[Muscle Angels] plays an important role for both humans and pets in the rehabilitation process, as it helps increase circulation, range of motion, and mobility.

Muscle Angels® for Pets is a patented, all-in-one pet therapy lauded by veterinarians and pet rehabilitation experts for its preventative and rehabilitative benefits. This unique device is the first of its type to combine Myofascial Trigger Point, Acupressure, and Deep Tissue Massage in one, easy-to-use, product. Muscle Angels® for Pets is particularly helpful for animals who suffer from tendonitis, iliospsoas muscle strains, cruciate ligament tears, shoulder subluxation injures, sesamoiditis, and muscle atrophy.

Jodie Caldwell, certified Equine Therapist & Canine Massage Therapist (CEMT, CCMT) says, " I LOVE the product for my equine clients; I can get in deeper than with my elbow or fingers, and the massager is great for assisting with pelvic tilts.”

Such enthusiastic endorsements from Jodie and other certified pet massage therapists serve to reinforcement Muscle Angels® vision to help people—and now animals—get back to living full and active lives.

Dr. Deborah Gross Saunders, DPT, MSPT, OCS, CCRP, a world leader in canine rehabilitation, whose career has focused on the recognition and treatment of injuries in dogs, praises Muscle Angels® for Pets as a wonderful tool for rehabilitation practitioners and their patients. “I love having a product that not only does so much for the animals I treat, but also helps me with my own body mechanics. The product plays an important role for both humans and pets in the rehabilitation process, as it helps increase circulation, range of motion, and mobility.”

“Equine and canine massage is proven to reduce stress and anxiety,” says Susan Z. Robins, President and Founder of Muscle Angels®. “It also is known to strengthen the immune system, improve blood and lymph circulation, and aid in restoring injured or arthritis tissues -- increasing mobility and flexibility.”
