Massage Is Good for Your Dog, Too!

As one of the leading day spas in Chattanooga, we are committed to your wellness. From microdermabrasion services that will enhance your confidence to stress-relieving therapeutic massage, our spa in Chattanooga offers services designed to help you live your best life.

But, as we explained in a previous post, wellness is about more than the time you spend with us. Wellness is something bigger. It is something you seek, something you strive to achieve, wellness is a goal.

There are any number of ways to pursue wellness. Having a dog is one of our favorite ways! Well, one of our favorites outside the walls of our Chattanooga spa! And because The Edwin Hotel in Chattanooga, home to our wellness spa, is pet friendly, you don’t have to go too far outside our walls to reap the benefits of having a dog! 

Benefits of Having a Dog

According to American Humane, there are a number of benefits associated with having a dog. Granted, they may be a tad bit biased, but we still think what they say makes sense! For example, they say, “Many dog owners see a decrease in blood-pressure, triglycerides and cholesterol levels, making them less at risk for heart-disease.”

 The top three benefits of having a dog, according to the American Humane, are:

  1. Dogs can make you healthier
  2. Dogs can make you happier
  3. Dogs can keep you safe

Wellness for You and Your Dog

Dogs do so much for us, it’s only right that we should try to do as much as we can for them. If you’ve ever had a massage at our spa in Chattanooga, you know how good it can make you feel. Well, as the American Kennel Club (AKC) explains, massage can also be good for your pet’s mental and physical health. 

“Massage may reduce stress and anxiety, increase circulation, decrease pain, and strengthen the bond between you and your dog. Also,” they report, “it can help to identify new growths at an early stage.”

The AKC is one of many online resources that can help you learn How to Massage Your Dog. 

And, when you would like to enhance your own wellness with a massage, our spa in Chattanooga’s Edwin Hotel will be here for you! It’s quick and easy to book online. (We’d love to see pictures of your dog when you come!)
