Equine Sports Massage Treatment
Equine Massage offers a multitude of benefits including injury prevention, recovery / rehabilitation and improved performance.
I use a variety of techniques including therapeutic massage, deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release techniques, as well as a full range of active and passive stretches. Heat and laser therapy is offered as an integral part of the treatments when required.
Before the initial treatment, a full history is taken which includes any previous veterinary issues, ridden or behavioural problems and any other information which may be relevant. In some cases in-hand and / or ridden observations may be required prior to treatment.
The treatment session itself involves a full assessment of the soft tissues and joint mobility of the horse’s body. I then treat the entire musculoskeletal system of the horse, whilst tailoring the treatment and techniques to what I believe will deliver the best results for the horse on that day.
At the end of the treatment I offer follow up advice, this can include where appropriate, targeted active and/or passive stretches, as well as recommendations for further treatment if required.
The treatments are very in depth, so expect them to take time. Treatments can vary from 50 minutes to two hours depending on the horses needs at the time.
