Welcome to K9 Body Work!
My name is Caroline Stone, I’m the proud owner of K9 Body Work and the first therapeutic canine massage therapist in the south of Spain. I’m a qualified, insured therapeutic canine masseuse and a proud member of the Canine Massage Guild, as well as being an avid dog lover committed to giving you and your dog the best customer care.
I cover the Costa Del Sol and will come to your home to treat your dog and tailor a massage suitable for their individual needs.
I respect the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966 and Exemption Order 1962 and never work on an animal without gaining prior veterinary approval.
Dogs are just like us and can accumulate many different issues in their muscular system. They can suffer with back pain, neck pain, stiffness, knots and much more. I’m trained in 4 modalities of massage; Swedish, deep tissue, sports and myofascial release and use these techniques to resolve these common issues helping give your dog a better quality of life. Not only does massage help rehabilitate muscular injuries it also supports orthopaedic conditions such as hip/elbow dysplasia and osteoarthritis.
Canine massage is a holistic drug free way to treat your dog and aims to get results in 1 – 3 sessions.
The majority of dogs will benefit from canine massage. Here are a few indications that your dog may be one of them!
