Equine massage is the practice of massage on horses, utilized for both day-to-day riding and post-trauma rehabilitation. Proponents list a number of positive effects, including the improvement of movement and the reduction of pain and stress responses. Scientific study is beginning to demonstrate possible benefits, although more study is needed.
Equine massage uses the hands, fingers and elbows of the therapist, as well as other tools, including tennis balls and vibrating tools. During the massage, the soft tissue is manipulated with the goal of loosening tight muscles, joints, tendons, scar tissue and edema; increasing blood flow and lymphatic activity; and reducing stress. Equine massage is used in exercise warm-up and post-injury or surgery rehabilitation.
Sports and performance horses benefit from regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance.
Particularly beneficial when coming back into work from injury or time off.
I have over 40 years experience using these complementary treatments on my horses and my clients' horses.
I would be more than happy to speak with you in regards to your horses' specific requirements.
