Beyond Dog Massage Book COMING SOON

The Beyond Dog Massage book is coming Summer of 2023!

Would you like to improve your dog’s movement, comfort, and longevity while opening exciting new doors to better communication and a more meaningful relationship? This book is for you!

The Masterson Method® is an interactive approach to equine and canine bodywork that follows the responses of the animal to find and release tension in areas of his body that affect:

  • His ability to get around.
  • His physical and mental well-being.
  • The quality of and length of his life.
  • His connection with you and other humans and animals.


The techniques used in the Masterson Method rely on reading and following the subtle changes in the dog’s body language as you work with him. Once you learn to read his body language, you will be “on the same page” and communication is established. Your dog recognizes that you understand what his body language is saying, that there is no threat to his well-being, and that he feels better when you work with him. In these pages you will learn the steps to incorporating the Masterson Method in your dog’s life, bringing happiness to both of you.
The Beyond Dog Massage book includes:
  • Step-by-step instructions, color photographs, and detailed illustrations.
  • Tips and techniques, understandable anatomical explanations, and examples from Jim’s personal experiences with hundreds of dogs.
  • 20 instructional videos demonstrating the principles and techniques with dogs.
  • A “quick-reference” section that points you toward exercises specifically suited to your dog’s breed or activity.

The Masterson Method is practical, easy to use, and results oriented. You see the results in the dog’s responses during the bodywork, and in his behavior, comfort, and movement afterward. Beyond Dog Massage is the ideal instructional guide for all those seeking a better quality of life for and deeper connection with their dogs.
