Following a detailed examination of your horse including seeing him lunged and ridden if appropriate I use an extensive toolbox of techniques to give your horse the best possible chance of attaining and maintaining optimum physical condition.
Benefits for the horse include:-
Maintenance of Peak Condition and Prevention of Injuries
Keeping your horse in peak physical condition will help improve performance, reduce the occurrence of injuries and induce a feeling of well being. Massage Therapy on a regular basis is a beneficial contributory factor in giving your horse the optimum chance to stay fit and perform at his best. It is an excellent barometer for muscular health and allows intervention before a minor problem escalates. Prevention is better than cure.
Massage Therapy can facilitate healing and shorten the recovery period. By preventing muscle atrophy, joint stiffness and maintaining muscle suppleness and tone it is of great benefit to horses on box rest.
Preparation and Post Competition Care
Massage therapy Regular sessions are effective in keeping your horse relaxed. They can be beneficial in preparing for exercise, enhancing performance, reduce muscle fatigue and ensure a rapid return to normal.
Horses, just like ourselves can suffer from Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS) – discomfort following strenuous exercise when muscles are not fully conditioned! Massage can provide welcome relief for this condition.
Does your horse....
If your answer to any of these is yes, your horse may be showing signs of soreness somewhere in his body. Massage and Manipulation may help to overcome these problems.
What I do
I take a holistic view of the horse. I carefully consider all the possible causes and effects of problems prior to treatment.
