Equine Massage Therapy

From trail horses to top performer, all horses benefit from massage therapy. Massage relaxes even the most high strung animal and creates a sense of well being for the animal. Additionally massage aids in the release of toxins, lactic acid and adhesion that build in the muscles fibers, increasing blood flow and oxygen in the area and shortens healing and recovery time. Massage is good for your horse, mind and body. 

Why Massage? 
 
  • Approximately 60% of the horse's body weight is muscle and muscles respond to stress or injury by hyper-contraction. This often results in stress on an opposing muscle or joint.
 
  • Muscle soreness can be the result of injury,misuse/over use,hyper-extension, cooling down too fast, structural or systemic imbalance
 
  • Muscle problems are most often cumulative in nature. If one muscle group is tight, the horse, like us, will have to compensate by tensing up and using other muscles.
 
  • Muscles, damaged or not, do not show up on X-Rays and palpation is the most effective method of injury detection
