A word from Jackie about the book
I am hugely excited to be announcing the publication of my new book “Reflexology for Dogs”. With over a hundred full colour photos and instructional figures, this beautiful book world equally well as a reference book and coffee table/reception reader.
The format is similar to my other book, beginning with general guidance on holistic therapies for dogs, moving into providing guidance on specific common canine medical complaints, and suggested holistic therapies for those maladies. The book also contains a number of interesting and instructive case studies.
Have a sneak peek below of a few pages from the book. Interested in buying? Head right to my online shop page.
Snippets from the book
Reflexology is a reciprocal exchange of love that is rewarding for both the giver and the receiver. Studies have shown how just stroking a dog can keep us happy and healthy by easing stress and tension. For dogs, allowing us to perform reflexology on their most sensitive areas like the paws and ears is a demonstration of their trust in us.
“Dogs are masters of creating emotionally safe space just by being themselves. … it is as if something deep within our souls resonates with their energy, their unwavering unconditional love and unbridled joy to be in our presence, their undivided loyalty, and complete trust in us. Dogs make us feel special, and teach us by example to relish simple pleasures and live totally in the moment. “ Val Silver
Ear reflexology is strongly suggested for any behavioral issues such as aggression or restlessness. Perform the techniques for any stressful situation such as car rides, shifting house and visiting the vet. Stimulating the tips of the ears is important in cases of shock after an accident or surgery.
