Equine Sports Massage is the therapeutic application of professional sports massage techniques applied to the horse. The key to a good massage is in-depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, gait analysis and the pattern of movement. A Therapist looks at the horse as a whole and attempts to consider all possible causes and effects of any tension whilst interpreting the horses reaction and expression.
Massage can also help prevent injury. Small muscle injuries can take up to 90 days to become apparent, through a change in attitude, decreased performance or lameness.
Prompt attention could relieve any future problems.
A massage will be both physically and psychologically relaxing for your horse. For those of you that have already had the pleasure of being massaged, you will know the relaxing ‘feel good factor' it can bring.
