Shiatsu Benefits Dogs

Shiatsu, a type of Japanese bodywork, is being taught in northern Virginia to people so they can apply the therapy to their dogs (I'm sure this works on cats and other animals too.)

The class mainly consisted of learning some of the canines' 40 pressure points and massaging their ears, legs, spinal area, gums and more. Such gentle massage--which Kawasumi learned at the Pet Massage Training and Research Institute in Toledo, Ohio--helps stimulate a dog's circulation, assesses its health, increases flexibility and restores internal balance.
