Holistic Healing For Horse And Hound



Murfreesboro, TN March 24, 2010   Certified equine and canine massage therapist, Melissa R. Sterling, announces the formation of a new company that will provide equine and canine massage therapy services to horse and dog owners in the Murfreesboro, TN and Middle TN surrounding areas.

Melissa received her certification from instructor Mary Schreiber of Equissage in Round Hill, VA. Equissage is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork (NCBTMB) Melissa is also a member of the International Association of Animal Massage Therapists (IAAMT).

Muscle tissue in horses, dogs and humans can be overused, overstretched and simply just overworked.  People were beginning to understand that if these alternative therapies could help them, they would probably work as well on their pets and the other animals in their care.

Among the many documented benefits of massage are:
• Enhances muscle tone and range of motion.
• Reduces inflammation and swelling in the joints, thereby alleviating pain.
• Promotes the healing process by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles, and aiding in carrying away excessive fluids and toxins.
• Creates a positive effect on the contractual and release process of the muscles...releasing tension...relaxing muscles.
• Stimulates circulation by: defrosting frozen muscles, thereby releasing endorphins - the body's natural pain killers.
• Helps to maintain the whole body in better physical condition.

Muscle integration therapy is gaining acceptance not only because of its results but also because of the increasing belief in the benefits of holistic treatment of medical problems.

Anyone interested in finding out more about this therapy and how it can be used with measurable health benefits in both equines and canines is invited to visit the company website we www.LovingKneads.com or write to Loving Kneads, LLC at 3698 Armstrong Valley Road, Murfreesboro, TN 37128, or call Melissa Sterling at (931) 224-5099
