Our pets hold physical and emotional stress and tension in their bodies, just as we do, but unlike us, they can’t tell anyone, and you may not even notice that they are suffering. Pets living with undetected silent pain may show a reluctance to exercise, restricted movement, and uncharacteristic behaviour changes such as reactivity (i.e., fear, anxiety, aggression) towards other dogs and people, while attention seeking, hyperactive (such as ball or stick obsessed dogs) pets, or those suffering from separation anxiety, are likely to have nervous systems that are always “on” and subsequently find it difficult to relax.
Whole Energy Body Balance (WEBB) Bodywork and Energywork therapies encourage the body to relax and turn “off”, soothing your pet’s nervous system and encouraging it to self-regulate. These unique non-invasive, complementary therapies help to identify and relieve tension in the neuro-fascial network (the connective tissue that covers everything and is packed with nerve-endings), that allows the body to shift the autonomic nervous system from sympathetic (flight or fight) to parasympathetic (rest and digest) thereby enabling the body’s neurological and immune systems to correct imbalances, heal, and maintain a calm mental state. Bodywork uses a series of hands-on, intentional touch techniques, while Energywork utilizes a hands-off approach which can be delivered remotely. Each session progression takes its cues from your pet’s body language and responses.
Every pet is an individual and each will respond to the WEBB techniques in their own way, so the number of sessions required will vary. It is recommended that a pet has at least 3 sessions over 3 consecutive weeks (1 per week) to gain the most benefit. For pets suffering from chronic pain or known emotional trauma, it may take more sessions. Afterwards, regular maintenance sessions monthly (or to suit) can be beneficial to maintaining their wellbeing.
WEBB is a complementary therapy and should never be viewed as an alternative to veterinary care. If you suspect your dog is unwell or injured please consult with your veterinarian.
