What is Merishia Massage?

Merishia Massage uses Swedish massage and sports massage techniques, it can be relaxing for body and mind. I work on stress points within the body to help with mobilisation.

The method incorporates no invasive but effective deep tissue mobilisation techniques to the body and limbs. The techniques aim to ease tension in the muscles and aid movement in the joints to help improve performance and general comfort and wellbeing.


The Merishia techniques not only includes deep tissue massage procedures; but a number of effective detailed mobilisation techniques, enhanced stretches, gentle release techniques, plus unique quick fire release techniques for very restricted tissue.

Dogs have different behavioural patterns but these are no less important. Frequently, dogs will lie down on the same side every time, or sit to one side, they may consistently get up when told to “sit stay” or “down stay”, they may run with their hindend carried to one side or appear stiff and uncomfortable either after exercise or after rest. Once again, where disease and lameness have been ruled out as the cause, muscle spasm and soreness lead to restricted movement and these “behaviours” which do not resolve.
