Canine Amatsu

Canine Amatsu Physical Therapy operates on the same principal as Amatsu in that it works on your dogs’ soft tissue such as ligaments, muscles and tendons and areas including the spine, joints and bones.

Some of the most common conditions that benefit from Canine Amatsu Physical Therapy may include:

  • Arthritis and degenerative joint diseases
  • Elbow and hip dysplasia
  • Muscle tightness
  • Post-surgical recovery of the back, hip, knee and neck
  • Soft tissue injuries to ligaments, muscles and tendons

A treatment will take up to 60 minutes and several sessions may be required depending on the condition being treated.

Please ensure that your dog does not eat for at least an hour before your appointment time.  When you arrive at Kokoro Clinic there will be time allotted for your dog to acclimatise to the surroundings before treatment begins as it is important that your dog is comfortable and as stress-free as possible.  If you have a medical history/report from your veterinary practice it would be very helpful to bring this along or email it in advance to

Canine Amatsu Physical Therapy is available by appointment only.
