About Merishia Massage
Just like us, our dogs get aches and pains, feel tension in their muscles, and suffer from stress and anxiety. And just like us massage can help.
Merishia is a type of massage which uses a variety of effective techniques including deep tissue massage to release tension within the dog’s muscles. Using your dog’s body language as a guide, gentle mobilisation techniques can also be used to enhance the effects of the massage.
Merishia massage may help your dog in the following ways:
- Release muscle tension and aid relaxation
- Ease stiffness and tight joints
- Help with recovery or rehabilitation
- Aid performance in agility or working dogs
- Improve flexibility and range of movement
- Stimulate circulation, supporting oxygen flow and removal of waste products
- Desensitisation to touch
- Bring awareness to areas of the body
- Ease compensations and tension in older dogs
- Enhance and maintain general well-being
About Feeling Pawsome Massage

All dogs are different, physically, behaviorally and emotionally. They all have different needs and may benefit from massage in different ways. Therefore each session will be bespoke to your dog’s needs. I will work appropriately with the animal’s body language responses to release areas of tension, and aid and improve range of movement. The overall aim is to enhance the dog’s emotional and physical wellbeing.

About Jo Knox
My dog made me do it! I became interested in canine massage to help my dog, Fozzy. She had a rough start to life after being neglected as a puppy. I started researching canine massage to help with her anxiety and soon became interested in all the other benefits it could bring. Having experienced benefits from massage myself, both sports and relaxation, it suddenly clicked with me that if it works for humans, it should work for dogs too.
I began training with Rose Holistic Therapies and Training in January 2020 and achieved the Diploma in Canine Merishia Massage in February 2021. The course covered practical and theory elements of anatomy and physiology, performance and health, handling, gait and joint assessment, Swedish massage, holistic and deep tissue techniques, cranial work, joint mobilisations; and included completing case studies with massage therapies on a variety of dogs.
