Equine Massage
 Equine Sports Massage is not to take the place of veterinary care but to enhance the care.

 
Benefits of Massage
  • Improves circulation and as a result, promotes more rapid healing of injuries.
  • Enhances muscle tone and increases range of motion
  • Eases muscle spasms.
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling in the joints so that pain is relieved.
  • Relieves tension.
  • Stimulates circulation in the lymphatic system and hastens the elimination of waste products and other toxins.
  • Lengthens connective tissue and  breaks down/prevents the formation of adhesions and reduces the danger of fibrosis.
  • Generally improves the disposition of the animal.
  
Definitions
Adhesion- an abnormal union of membranous surfaces due to inflammation or injury

Fibrosis- the thickening and scarring of connective tissue, usually as a result of injury

Considerations
  1. 60% of the horse's body weight is muscle
  2. Muscle soreness can be the result of injury, cooling down too fast, structural or systemic imbalance, overstretching or overuse/misuse
  3. Muscle problems are cumulative in nature, if one set of muscles are tight, the horse will compensate by tensing  up and using other muscles
  4. Muscle, damaged or not, do not show up on X-Rays

Making the connection with your equine begins with the care you offer them.  

An Elite Equine massage provides your equine with a session of physical, mental and spiritual healing. I listen and allow your horse to direct the massage rather than forcing any issue. It is a mutual interaction for the best benefit to your equine. 

Massage sessions are approximately one hour in length and include:

  Evaluation  prior to and during the massage.
  Massage and manipulation of muscle tissue
  Energy work
  Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils to address needs
  Written documentation of each massage for your reference


I have recovery and rehabilitation experience and will work with your veterinarian or chiropractor.

 I  travel to your location for the session. If your barn is located more than  60 miles there is a traveling fee. Groups of 4 or more at same barn is encouraged for further distances. Contact me for group arrangements.
