Other Helpful Community Partners
ARF! Massage offers at home or in-hospital massage, basic rehabilitation, and photobiomodulation (low level laser therapy). Ms. Rhonda Matsuno can help animals recover from an injury, heal better after an orthopedic procedure, or ease the discomfort of arthritis as they become older.
Massage contributes to healing by increasing circulation, relaxing muscles, mobilizing joints, and awakening tissue by increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients available to cells. In conjunction with massage, Rhonda utilizes a low level power laser. It is a light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair as well as reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. It boosts growth and recovery of cellular energy and thus promotes cellular regeneration, production of collagen for tissue repair, vascular dilation, and synthesis for better circulation to increase the healing process.
There are countless benefits to treating animals with a balanced approach of Eastern and Western medicine. Today, pet owners look for alternative therapies to complement veterinary treatments. Laser is used by professional and Olympic level athletes. Please visit the ARF! website and reach out to Rhonda today!
