Pawsitively Divine!

Aunty S (of the grumoy Ewan, not the usual Aunty S) told my M about her friend who's doing Canine massage therapy and my M agreed to let me try it out, so off we went to visit Aunty Zoe at her house.

Aunty Zoe is a certified canine massage practitioner who learnt her skill from Petmassage Institute and has used her magic touch on dogs while she was in california. Now that she's moved back to Singapore, I get to benefit from it. Hiak hiak hiak...

Apparently the massage is like acupressure, good for enhancing circulation, relaxation, pain relief and also helps injured dogs heal both physically and emotionally! There's even specialised massage for dogs with respiratory problems or hip dysplasia!

Aunty Zoe found out from my M about my medical history, ie: if I have any health problems before commencing. I'm sooooo glad tho that I am a VERY healthy boy so I just went for the relaxation massage.

Aunty Zoe massaged my head....

ahhh.....


my eyes....

Ohhh.....


my paws....

Yeah....


My gums.... just a sidenote, Aunty Zoe said that I have good teeth for a dog my age *wriggles in joy*

Mumble...


My ears.... can you tell that I'm almost chilling out by now?

MMmmmm...


It was totally relaxing, so much so that I didn't want it to end.

If I pretend to fall asleep, will they just continue the massage?


Even Benny, Aunty Zoe's corgi, tried his paws at massaging me.

A little to the left please...


He was so good I told him he should be Aunty Zoe's full time assistant! I think Benny was quite surprised that I think he's good. Hee Hee



I think Benny's pretty happy with me being pretty happy, so we just chilled out after the session.

Chillin'


If anyone would like to find out more about Aunty Zoe's wonderful massage, there's more information at her webbie on Pawsitive Sensations.

I think I shall go bug my M to make my next appointment. With the arrival of Helios, I really do think I need loads of massage to help me relax.

You lucky devil. I want a massage too.

My mom is train in Reiki. Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Unfortunately, she has no time (her excuse).

We are going to your house tonight. Maybe you can ask her for a free session.

Oooh - and we think Jasper has a great idea. Your Aunt should use you on her site and pay you in more massages!

Hmmm, could have sworn I posted a comment...

Anyways, you do look like you're having a splendid time there - now Mom wants a massage too - at Dad's expense of course.

Lucky you! Gotta whine dad to give me one soon.

Later!

Hi!

Just wanted everyone to know that I managed to convince my mum to give a bigger discount, especially since the launch of this whole thing is so near my birthday!!! (hint hint)

Do recheck out the website (www.pawsitivesensations.com) and spread the news k? Especially if you know of paw friends who have health probs of any kind...I know my mum can help.

Cheers to great health!

Hey Herbie,
Too bad we don't live in Singapore by Auntie Zoe, we could get a massage! Our Mama does massage us, but we're sure it's not as good as Aunty Zoe. The picture of Benny standing on you is so precious! Did he give you a good massage? hehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
