Canine Joint + Spine can help your dogs live a happier, pain-free life
There are dogs all over the world suffering from hip, spine, and joint pain. And there are owners who far too often have to make the extremely difficult decision to put an end to their dog’s pain. As a result, they end up losing a loving member of their family. We truly believe that this isn’t necessary.
There are real solutions – 97% of pain receptors are in the soft tissue. Most people put too much focus on the spine or the joints. They are missing the fact that the soft tissue is pulling on their spine or joints which ultimately causes the dysfunction.
Moench Method Canine Joint + Spine uses the same bodywork principles that have been developed over the last 25+ years which focuses on lengthening soft tissue. We eliminate pain by eliminating the tightness or constraints on the soft tissue so it stops pulling at the attachment, increases blood supply, and ultimately increases the body’s capacity to heal itself. This has the capability to eliminate your pup’s pain for a longer, happier life.

What our clients are saying about Moench Method Canine Joint + Spine treatment
Before your dog's visit
Complete the Appointment Request form ("Request An Appointment" form above)
When the electronic consent form has been completed by both you and your dog's veterinarian, we will contact you to set up an appointment date and time. Let your vet know to be on the lookout for this email so that we can get you booked as quickly as possible!
Ensure your dog is clean and flea-free.
Trim nails to an appropriate length – when their nails get too long, the dog's natural gait can be negatively impacted.
Properly hydrate your dog before their session – hydrated soft tissue is easier to manipulate and can increase the likelihood of a successful treatment.
If your dog has a history of anxiety and has anti-anxiety medication prescribed to them, please plan to administer a dose before bringing them to their appointment. Any situation involving strangers can be stressful for your pet and a session of myofascial release is no exception.
Appointment length varies, but you can expect to be able to run a couple of errands before we give you a call that your pup is ready to pick up!
What your dog can expect during their visit
Initial walk after arrival and greeting by the office staff/therapist for familiarization.
Put into a size-appropriate crate with Kangen Water. This ionized alkaline water offers quick hydration of the soft tissues and we have it available for all of our human clients, as well! For more information, click here. If you have further questions about Kangen Water, we can connect you with a representative.
Right before treatment, your dog will get another walk and receive a quick brushing to reduce stress shedding and calm further.
After treatment, your dog will go back to their crate with Kangen Water available and wait for you to pick them up!
