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. Plus, it's easy to teach pet owners how to use the massaging device at home.
Brookline, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011
Norbis Innovations Company, LLC announces its newest therapeutic massage product: Muscle Angels® for Pets. This patented pet therapy helps minimize the intensity and frequency of muscle tightness and pain in active, healthy pets, and increases circulation, flexibility, mobility, and comfort in injured or arthritic pets. It is the first of its type to combine Myofascial Trigger Point, Acupressure, and Deep Tissue Massage in one, easy-to-use, product.
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. Plus, it's easy to teach pet owners how to use the massaging device at home. Pet massage plays an important role in the rehabilitation process, as it helps increase circulation, range of motion, and mobility. Muscle Angels is particularly helpful for pets with tendonitis, iliospsoas muscle strains, cruciate ligament tears, shoulder subluxation injures, sesamoiditis, and muscle atrophy”. Dr. Gross Saunders continues, “If my patients could speak, they would tell you how much they love being treated with Muscle Angels® for Pets"!
Such accolades act as a powerful reinforcement of Muscle Angels'® vision to help people—and now animals—get back to living full and active lives. Susan Z. Robins, president and founder of Muscle Angels®, says, “Given the success we are having with Muscle Angels® massagers with elite athletes who, not unlike pets, over-use and sometimes injure, muscles, I wasn’t at all surprised when veterinarians started asking for a pet version of the product. I was delighted to oblige, and hope Muscle Angels® for Pets provides as much relief to our four-legged friends as it does for our two-legged ones"!
