What is massage therapy?
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue in the body, such as muscle fibers, fascia, tendon and ligament.
What to expect
Upon arrival I will have you fill out a horse history and behavior form, informing me of any previous or current injuries, as well as your horses personality type. Next, I will ask to see your horse move at a walk and trot. This will allow me to see possible movement restrictions. Following this I will perform the evaluation massage. During the initial evaluation massage I will conduct a full body evaluation to find any muscle tension, spasms, or soreness. A routine massage session is best to keep your horse in top shape. Some of the forms of therapy I use are sports massage, deep tissue, and stress point massage.
If you have any lameness or health concerns please take them up with your vet before a massage is scheduled/performed.
Please give 24 hour notice for any cancellations.

Stretching is "used to elongate the muscles and improve flexibility. It is most beneficial following a proper warm-up or thorough massage. It's not uncommon for a horse to be sore after a massage session, and stretching will help provide some relief". -Mike Scott
