Nelson, our 7yo Bull Terrier, had a course of three massage therapy sessions with Sam. We were very interested to see if it could help with potential joint problems which our vet had flagged up in him - he was feeling stiff particularly in his right hindleg and was prescribed long-term anti-inflammatory medication and x-rays to check his leg. Nelson’s improvement after three sessions was very dramatic - we were delighted. Shortly after the third massage session, we took him back to the vets for a check-up (we’d decided to take him off the medication about a week before as he seemed to be doing well) – our vet was happy when manipulating his joints and saw no need for him to continue the medication or have an x-ray.
