Plum Grove Therapeutic Massage Canine Success Stories

MaisieMaisie’s Story

Although there are many animals in the Douphinette household, we always make room for one more pet in need of a fresh start. Maisie, an eight-pound Schnoodle, definitely fit that bill when she joined our family in September 2007. To Cindy Douphinette’s surprise, when scooped off the floor, Maisie yelped in fear or pain. Cindy, an RN and certified canine massage therapist, immediately examined Maisie for signs of injury. Cindy quickly discovered tight shortened muscles in Maisie’s armpits and shoulders, which caused her to hold her front legs snugly against her body. The tight overdeveloped muscles in her hind legs caused her back legs to bow out to the sides.

Cindy quickly instituted “four on the floor” orders for Maisie and then began canine massage therapy. After several massage sessions, the muscles in Maisie’s front legs relaxed allowing for an increase in range of motion. With ongoing treatment during the next few months, Cindy observed a noticeable straightening of Maisie’s hind legs as the muscles relaxed and began to bring her legs to a more normal position.

Before picking Maisie up from the floor, a family member gives Maisie a verbal cue to put “four on the floor” then gently cups a hand under her ribcage and picks her up. Maisie no longer yelps when picked up. Instead, she shows her appreciation by giving the handler a little kiss under the chin.

Ch. Kameo’s Nor’easter’sCh. Kameo’s Nor’easter’s Story

Ch. Kameo’s Nor’easter’s, aka Kylie, is an eleven-year-old male Keeshond Veteran in the Breed Confirmation Ring. He had been experiencing a problem of stepping one hind leg forward and dropping his tail during examination by the judge. Two days before the National Keeshond Dog Show in San Francisco, Kylie lost his six-year-old Keeshond companion. Kylie was a mess physically and emotionally. Kylie’s owner, Cathy Bosnic, asked Cindy Douphinette, RN, certified canine massage therapist and Reiki Master, to work with Kylie immediately prior to his appearance in the ring. Cindy gave Kylie a Reiki treatment to balance him emotionally and massage therapy to release tight muscles and improve range of motion and flexibility. During the event, Kylie was able to stop squarely with his tail held high, ensuring his win that day as Best in Breed. As a veteran, Kylie proved he is still a true champion.
