Bodywork is a VERY good value! Veterinary offices charge as much as $85.00 for a laser session and $65-$95 for a 30-minute office visit. 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.
The difference between pharmaceuticals (pain meds, steroids & bodywork is that pain meds will block the symptoms (pain & discomfort, inflammation) temporarily, as a mask, whereas therapy resolves the imbalance.

My Story: At 9 1/2 my 110lb Doberman suddenly had neurological issues from spinal trauma. He could barely stand and kept falling down.  The emergency vet recommended putting him down if he wasn’t better in a few days or do a 10k MRI and surgery, with zero guarantees this would help my boy. I found a holistic way to completely heal my boy that cost a lot less, was
non-invasive and pleasurable for Rhett.   It was seeing the miracles happen right in front of me while hearing of other pets put down way before their time that informed my career shift.   Regular maintenance, such as Chiropractic and massage, and acupressure extended his quality of life massively.   See for yourself!  All non-invasive therapy, 3 months of bi-weekly and weekly treatments gradually tapering off to monthly maintenance to keep him balanced.

WHEN SHOULD MY DOG GET A MASSAGE?

♥ Before Vet visits to calm and relax
♥Prior to Acupuncture so treatment will be the most effective
♥ Before Animal Chiropractic so treatment will be the most effective
♥Monthly or quarterly as maintenance
♥To remedy muscle and tendon imbalances, aches & arthritis, spinal & neurological trauma
♥ Ahead and after sporting events to improve performance and reduce the potential of injury
♥ Hospice care and comfort

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY DOG’S THERAPEUTIC SESSION?

♥ Schedule for a time when your dog is normally relaxed, not during or immediately after eating
♥Groom or brush your pup will help minimize shedding and aid in palpation
♥Evacuate/Go Potty before the therapy session
♥Providing a CBD treat is optional to help your dog relax
♥ Let them know where they are going. I see many clients weekly and monthly. The dogs learn fast where they are going and look forward to it!
My dog may bite or be aggressive: My hands are my livelihood and with them, I provide a space for healing many fur kids. Please muzzle your dog with a basket muzzle before the session if you are unsure whether your dog will be able to relax and not be a bite risk. ♥☻♥
♥Sanitization Practices; a safe stabilized oxygen sanitizer spray is employed as well as fresh linens. Many times, the clients are down on the mat holding their dog or just enjoying the PEMF/Far/Near-Infrared energy while I work. I believe that by healing our fur kids, we also gain healing too and it is a calming influence for the dogs to have their humans there and participating.
♥Cancellation – Your session time is reserved for you. Last-minute cancellations mean we lose the opportunity to help another animal. Should you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please provide at least a 24-hour notice to avoid an appointment charge.

Location – We are located just down from the Dallas Arboretum. People comment on the peaceful Spa atmosphere. I’ve even had people fall asleep. Rather than a clinical atmosphere, the setting is calming, homey for the client and patient. The air and any water used are purified. The materials used are natural non-toxic fibers. If your pet is infirm, house calls may be scheduled at an additional charge, please inquire.

What’s involved in a therapy session? – Sessions include an experience tailored to the individual dog, (and occasionally a kitty), pulling from various methods. I utilize tools, oils, light therapy, laser acupuncture, PEMF, a far and near-infrared crystal healing mat, vibration plate, sound therapy, Kinesiology Taping, LED & laser tools, and a release tool as part of ANMR, and use the combination of modalities best suited for your pup.
ANMR is a technique that addresses any muscular hypo or hypertonicities by re-establishing proper neurological input and directly releasing the spasms or trigger points in the muscles. This technique is a cornerstone of my practice and allows the body to align itself rather than providing specific force to the bones to change their position (chiropractic) ANMR is a great adjunctive, along with general massage, to chiropractic work.
Do you diagnose injury or illness? As a wellness partner to your veterinarian, my practice focuses on holistic therapy, pain mediation, nutritional guidance, and disease prevention. Only a licensed veterinarian can provide you a diagnosis. That stated, if I see anything that I believe to be suspect, I will bring it to your attention and suggest you see your veterinarian. Session length is dependent upon the dog, with most sessions being 30-45 minutes. Massage therapy goes so much deeper than just petting, it is energy work and while it can be delightful for the pup, it is also a lot to process. Significant detoxification takes place with bodywork as well as healing. They tell me when their session is through. Beyond getting in my acupoints and any ANMR & PEMF therapy, I honor when the dog is ready to go.

HOW To Schedule – Via veterinary referral or you may contact us directly to schedule your appointment and bring the completed new patient forms (see download docs below) with you to your first appointment. Please and particularly if your pup has experienced major trauma or illness, take the paperwork to your veterinarian to get a referral so we may work together as wellness partners for you and your pup.

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.

  1. Hi Suzanne!

    I found your company on Google after my husband and I were talking about doggy massages. We have a 5 year old male golden retriever named Yeti and in August 2020 he was diagnosed with stage 3 soft tissue sarcoma in his front left shoulder. We ended up amputating his poor leg (I think it was much harder on us than it was on him) but it was in hopes to save his life.

    They gave him 9-12 months to live since it was aggressive and it seemingly came out of nowhere, but now it’s been 13 months post-op and he’s doing so great! He has successfully handled welcoming another baby to the family in February, and a move to a new house in April (I was so worried about all of these transitions as I read they can induce stress).

    Anyway. We just can’t help but think he’s got to be so sore sometimes, walking and hopping on 3 legs regularly…. I try and rub his arm and shoulder in the evenings on my own. I’m sure you could help him but I wanted to see what you recommend first, or if you even service tripawds in the first place.

    I appreciate your help Suzanne, and I’m so glad I found you and this line of work actually exists! 🙂

    1. Thank you Lauren, it was nice connecting with you earlier. For the purposes of aiding anyone here with tripaws, elderly, spinal/neurological trauma, pre and post sporting events, or preventative monthly or quarterly maintenance, massage, ANMR, Vibration Therapy, acupressure, Reiki, PEMF, and the host of modalities I throw into my daily practice, I never tire of the paraplegics who walk again, the elders who move with greater ease, brighter eyes and outlook! My passion, as a pet parent, is coaching pet parents on at-home therapy tools that they can use to speed healing and recovery at home in between professional sessions, as well as lifestyle detox which gets into holistic food and supplement options. I look forward to helping your baby feel and function better when I see him! ♥
