Author Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach, Offers Tips To Help Heal Dogs Using Healing Energy

We need not look far for information on how our energy as dog owners can help heal our dog’s behavior problems. The question The Chicago Dog Coach, Ami Moore believes everyone needs to ask is: Are we really getting the full story on how our energy heals our dogs? If the mainstream media provides any clues, the answer is no.

[July 26 Chicago IL] It is a given that our energy can help heal our dogs behavior problems. Ami Moore, The Chicago Dog Coach, believes energy can heal much more than this.

“It’s time we separate fact from fiction," stated Ms. Moore, "and myths from truths. The real story here is here, right in the palm of your hand. Your thoughts and feelings are transmitted to your dog and can help immediately heal your dogs’ behavior problems. I teach my clients that dog massage is the best way to increase their dominance with their dog and to immediately boost their dog’s health."

At the recent Dog Day Afternoon luncheon and seminar sponsored by the Animal Ministry of the Chicago Bodhi Spiritual Center, The Chicago Dog Coach astounded the audience with her demonstration of dog-friendly healing tips and massage techniques. She offers the following tips regarding the benefits of therapeutic dog massage:

1. Calms the Dog
It has been proven by experts that dogs bark and make noise more when they are restless, tense, hyperactive or aggressive. A good massage therefore helps them relax and ultimately makes them quieter.

2. Reduces Pain and Inflammation
Just as humans feel a lot of relief to their aching muscles after a good massage, the same happens to our dogs. Extremely beneficial for very active dogs; and even for dogs that are couch potatoes.

3. Increases Immune System Function
Gentle massage triggers the chemicals that affect the dog’s hormonal system which brings down the level of stress hormones that weaken the immune system.

4. Improves Blood and Lymph Flow
It stimulates blood circulation and flow of lymph which then increases the amount of oxygen that reaches tissue and flushes out toxins and waste which increases overall health.

5. Decreases Pain
Massage instructs the brain to release pain-killing endorphins.

6. Reduces Stress
Dogs that are exposed to a routine of massage tend to be less aggressive, less hyper and less nervous as they become adults.

7. Decreases Healing Time From Injuries
Dogs have been treated effectively with a good massage, which restores restores mobility and flexibility.

8. Builds A Proper Alphatude Attitude in Dog and Owner
It helps to build trust between people and their dogs. It can increase awareness of subtle changes in a dog’s physical conditions that may be precursors to disease.

9. Heightens Concentration and Alertness
Helps increase the dog’s ability to concentrate on difficult tasks, improves the dog’s memory and sharpens intelligence.

10. Promotes Longevity
Routine massage will help dogs live longer and more productive lives. If the dog is geriatric, dog massage will help reduce pain and physical infirmity.

"In my book, 'The Alphatude Attitude'", continued Ms. Moore, "I talk about how the human component, particularly the feelings of fear, anger and frustration, influence a dog's behavior. The human learning to control their emotions is an important part of this process. I always tell my clients that their dogs need leadership more than love. ‘Alphatude’ is the leadership attitude expressed in a way that the dog understands. Dogs don’t really understand abstractions like words or emotions. Dogs understand concrete communication: tone, body language and facial expression.”
