...Equine Massage...

Massage should not be seen as a luxury but a complimentary wellness routine. Body and soul belong together, not just for us but also for your horse. A massage will relax the horse and relieve its body of deep stress and pain, including muscles and connective tissue. But massage offers so much more than just a wellness routine. Massage can heal the body and the soul of your horse whether it is stress, anxiety, physical blockages, digestive problems or lameness, just to name a few. A combination of massage techniques, along with range of motion exercises, reduce tension and allow the horse to move with greater ease and fluidity.

Massage prevents muscle atrophy, increases flow of nutrient rich blood to the muscles and helps reduce the healing process and recovery time. At the same time, it aids in removing lactic acid build up and eliminating other metabolic waste from the body. This encourages injured muscles to heal, and healthy muscles to stay flexible and be pain free. You will be able to see an improvement in the emotional health and behavior of your horse following a massage. Reduction in muscular pain, stiffness and discomfort also means that your horse will be less fearful and more willing to perform.

"There is something about the outside of a horse 

that is good for the inside of a man" Sir Winston Churchill

Horses, like people, become sore, tense, and stressed for different reasons. Once they understand you are trying to help them they are amazing at communicating in their own way, and will often tell you where the problem is. Horses cannot help it but be honest when they show us where it hurts and that there is a problem. They show it through their behavior. If your horse suddenly is ”Off” for no apparent reason, bucking, refusing to pick up a correct lead, head tossing, or just general attitude changes, there is a large possibility that your horse is in pain and does not know who to make you understand.

With increasing in popularity, more and more horse owners are realizing the importance of massage for their horses. Equine massage can play a significant role in the well-being of their horse. All horses can benefit from a massage, from older horses that are not being used, to top performance horses at any level or just your loyal companion that you teach your child the first riding lesson on.

Remember, horses get sore , just like we do.

Please note that massage does not replace veterinary care.  

Massage can be a beneficial tool in the healing process and overall well-being.
