Dog Aromatherapy And More

Dog AromatherapyMaybe it is the benefit of love from a pet. Perhaps pet owners are pinching pennies like everyone. Whatever the reason, pets increasingly benefit from complementary therapies like dog aromatherapy, pet massage, and more.

Massage is just one of a growing body of alternative therapies that Mary Kelley and Mark Falstad, Brinks’ humans, employ to ease the 10-year-old dog’s stiff joints, jump-start his appetite and soothe his ailing liver. Acupuncture is another.

As people increasingly take a holistic approach to their health, they’re also looking to alternatives to conventional medical care for their nonhuman family members. That’s why a new breed of wellness services for dogs — from chiropractic and aromatherapy to Chinese herbs and psychic communication — is springing up in the Twin Cities.“It stems from human stuff,” said Dr. Cathy Sinning of Lake Harriet Veterinary. “There’s more mainstreaming now because of people learning how it can help themselves.”

Almost a third of Americans seek out “complementary and alternative medicine” to enhance their medical care, according to studies by the Centers for Disease Control. That includes using natural products, such as fish oil to combat heart disease; engaging in mind and body practices, such as meditation and yoga; or other approaches such as herbal remedies, traditional Chinese medicine or homeopathic drugs.More humans, it seems, want their pets to have the same options.
