Equine Massage Therapy
Equine massage therapy is a growing field in the equine industry. Equine massage is the therapeutic application of massage techniques developed and used by human athletes, applied to the horse. It has been credited with increasing performance level, competitiveness and endurance. In addition, massage assists in prevention of debilitating muscular injuries and in speeding injury recovery time. Benefits are most notable in improved performance as well as injury prevention to the horse.
The benefits of massage relieve tension and muscle spasms, improves circulation, promoting healing, can reduce inflammation, legnthen connective tissue, degrease adhesions, increase performance, and adjust the attitude of the horse, just to name a few.
Each horse is an individual that will uniquely respond to sport massage therapy. All horses benefit, whether they are competitors, retired, healthy or injured/ill.
