Infographic:  The Benefits of Massage

I just had to add this video from TheDeafeningWhisper.  It’s a YouTube channel of relaxing sounds.  Just for the guy’s voice alone.  watch as he gives golden retriever Eddie a massage and brushing.  Just watch the first minute or so, and you will get the idea!  It drives me nuts that he only does one side of the dog!  Eddie, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to mind.

Here is a more in depth article from The New York Times on Pet Massage and in some of the larger cities there are Workshops that may be offered in your area!
