Bodywork is a VERY good value! Veterinary offices charge as much as $85.00 for a 3-minute laser session with a 30-minute office visit averaging $65-$95 in the metroplex. PureTemple therapy sessions provide quality hands-on time with the animal, including various massage & therapeutic modalities tailored to your fur child that really make a healing difference in your pet.
Why is a Veterinary Signature Requested? – Massage is not a replacement for appropriate wellness checks and veterinary care. While Animal Legislation laws do not currently specify veterinary approval for massage, we want to rule out anything serious such as broken bones, cancer, or any issue that would be contraindicated for bodywork. If your dog is undergoing any standard treatments, surgeries, etc it is important to know so that we can partner together to speed healing, such as with light therapy and kinesiology taping pre and post CCL surgery. Please download and complete the two forms below and bring them with you to your scheduled appointment. I look forward to being a wellness partner and helping your furkid feel and function better. ♥
Healing Expectations – Your pup will most likely need a few weekly (or twice weekly) sessions, not just one appointment. Therapy is not a magic pill. If you have ever recovered from an injury, required chiropractic work, acupuncture, massage or physical therapy, how long did it take for you to begin to feel and function better? In most cases, just like with any therapy you may have gone through yourself, results are individual, cumulative over time, and require you to adhere to the treatment plan suggested. Although this does happen, it is rare to have a situation where one session results in 100% cure. Many people find me after their pet has been in pain and imbalance a long time and may have also gone to other places and not found relief. I understand the time, expense, and frustration involved in this but ask that you come prepared to allow this therapy to work. It is common for me to see patients twice a week, or weekly for several sessions (typically 4-5 treatments) to get to a place of healing, improvement, and stability that we can then build on with a maintenance plan.
Better Doesn’t Mean Stop Treatment! I have folks who bring their dog once and already the spine is no longer as roached, they feel better so the dog begins playing again with toys or is otherwise showing joy. The pet parent can sometimes interpret this as ‘Oh, great, we are done with therapy!’ They speak in their language and are telling you “thank you!” They DO feel much better but this doesn’t mean they are 100% and ready to stop treatments. Please adhere to the treatment plan and derive full benefits for you and your pup! ♥ Whether the imbalance is sudden (acute) or chronic conditions, those situations where the dog has been limping, stutter walking, moving with a hunched or roached spine, or what have you for months or even years, allow time for the treatments to create a space for wellness. Older dogs and those with arthritis, hip dysplasia, spinal trauma, or other longer-term complaints may require weekly or bi-weekly therapy for some time to regain mobility before migrating to a maintenance plan and there are elders that see me regularly and need that tune-up to keep them going! Obviously, anything broken, torn most likely requires surgery. So far, every individual who’s followed the treatment plan provided has seen great improvements in their beastie & is off all pain medication but we must honor each animal as an individual, consider the condition and then honor the healing process. I wish everyone the healing they wish for but also the grace and patience to receive it.
