Equine Massage Therapy for horses of all disciplines from performance horses to trail horses.
Why should you choose massage therapy for
your horse? Because your horse deserves the
best care. If your horse is experiencing
or decreased performance
due to tight muscles or muscle spasms,
massage therapy can help create a more
well-balanced horse mentally, emotionally,
and physically. Muscle fatigue and/or spasms
can affect horses in ways similar to humans.
Muscle fibers become strained and can spasm
from over extension or usage. When muscle
fibers are held together, it causes a spasm
which decreases motion and causes
discomfort. If a spasm is not broken up, it
can continue to gather more fibers to itself
and may increase in size and intensity of
Massage therapy can help alleviate muscle fatigue and spasms thus reducing your horse’s risk of pulling or tearing muscles. It can help your horse be more relaxed by relieving tension and reducing the risk of over using other muscles that compensate for any discomfort. Equine massage therapy can also help improve circulation and reduce inflammation in joints and muscles while allowing them to move more freely.
