Animal Normalization Therapy

Osteopathy, or animal normalization therapy, is a non-pharmaceutical technique that helps animals strengthen their body’s natural defense mechanisms and shorten their healing time.

Humans and animals have used animal normalization therapy since the early nineteenth century to provide pain relief and help mend stress caused by trauma, chronic diseases and other conditions. Osteopathy can be used alone or along with other therapy treatments intended to provide pain relief.

How Does Animal Normalization Therapy Help?

Many owners turn to animal normalization therapy as an option for their pets if they feel hands-on treatments will be too traumatic. Sticking to a regular treatment regime helps resolve problems one layer at a time without causing pain to animals. The therapy targets the fascia that surrounds various components in an animal’s body, including:

  • Nerves
  • Blood vessels
  • Muscles
  • Organs

Direct and Indirect Animal Normalization Therapy

The direct animal normalization therapy technique is more chiropractic, with the practitioner pushing through the barrier and restricting the animal’s movements. Indirect methods of animal normalization therapy focus on setting affected body tissues up to where they work through any restrictions without additional help.

Indirect animal normalization therapy shows a lot of promise in helping pets dealing with neck, back, and shoulder issues. It’s also being viewed as something that can be very beneficial to older animals, along with service and agility dogs.
