The need for your horse to be physically comfortable cannot be overestimated when it comes to his quality of life, and is an essential element of the respect and understanding that leads to a healthy, happy horse.
In massage therapy we treat restrictions in the soft tissues of the body, including muscle, tendon, ligament and fascia. This allows the joints to realign to their natural healthy state. As the horse's posture improves, the horse is more comfortable and movement and biomechanics continue to improve.
A healthy body and good fluid movement develop when each part of the horse is moving independently with softness and suppleness.
Equine Bodywork is never a substitute for veterinary care, and works best as part of a collaborative approach in which the horse's vet, rider and trainer, and other health-care professionals all work together to achieve the best results.
