Equine Sports Massage
Your horse is an athlete, why not treat it like one.
Some horses are more naturally gifted than others,
but the common denominator between them all, is that
the musculoskeletal system equates to over 60% of
their body weight. This system is responsible for
movement and yet it is the muscles that are often
overlooked when it comes to preventative maintenance
and injury rehabilitation.
Sports Massage can help locate and relieve knots
and other muscular issues that may be limiting your
horse's range of motion and therefore performance.
Minor injuries and adhesions caused by over exertion
and/or overuse can be broken down quickly and effectively.
It can help prepare the equine athlete for peak performance,
drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle
tension, promote flexibility and prevent injury. Sports
Massage can include pre-event, post-event and maintenance
techniques that promote greater athletic endurance
and performance, lessening injuries and reducing recovery
