  Equine Massage Therapy is an Intellectual Process; working through the law of 'cause and effect', it not only releases the causes of pain and discomfort from within a horse, it also prevents their return and consequential effects. Equine Holistic Training reveals many techniques, applications and routines, all designed to create targeted results for pre-competition, post-competition, maintenance, recovery, psychological relaxation physiological stimulation as well as muscular flexion and tone.

The horse's brain accepts posture, balance, locomotion and muscular tension as normal, thus continuing to order its negative movement...

When ordered from the brain through the neural system, the integrated workings of the skeletal, ligament, tendon and muscular systems unite, to create the horse's movement. However, the brain does not recognise whether the executed movement is positive and correct, negative, ineffective or self damaging. So why does the horse's brain accept negative and damaging movement? because mother nature has not yet evolved to counteract the very unnatural act of riding the horse in the ways that we do.
Lateral movement, hind limb engagement, creating a light forehand, tracking up, extending the strides and jumping are all unnatural actions, although the horse has the ability to perform these actions so that in the wild he may escape from danger. However, Mother Nature did not incorporate the inclusion tack and rider into these adapted movements.

When treating the horse with both or either equine healing massage and equine sports massage therapy, its powerful effects do not remain confined within the horses muscular system. Its benefits are listed above left.

I am a Registered Equine Massage Therapist. I work within my duty of care at all times. My area of expertise is the horses muscular system and its corresponding physiological effects. I have been trained to evaluate, locate and treat muscles and muscular related conditions. I am not a veterinary surgeon and I will always recommend that a horse be referred back to its vet should I deem this necessary if its condition is outside any area of my professional field.
