Improving your horse’s health
Ever noticed that you’re not at your best when you’re unwell? Maybe you get a little grumpy or short tempered when you’re in pain. Well, it’s exactly the same for horses.
Irritation, aggravation or lack of cooperation is often your horse’s reaction to intense physical pain that it can’t tell you about. Relieving the pain often removes the bad behaviour.
I work with horses across various disciplines, releasing restrictions throughout their body, easing painful muscle spasms and promoting tissue healing and repair. My methods and tools aid in the recovery and rehabilitation from injuries.
Most horses are highly sensitive and respond best to soft touch. Strong techniques such as deep tissue have a role alongside more subtle methods which are often the most effective.
Results may be immediate or may take several treatments – it depends what has caused the injury and how severe it has become. The effects are generally long lasting.
My intuitive touch and experience across a range of modalities gives me a large skill set to draw from to meet your horse’s needs. The treatments I may use include:
- Remedial Massage
- Masterson Method
- Myofascial Release
- Equine Kinesiotaping
- Energy Balancing
- Photonic Red Light
- Laser Therapy
- Shockwave Therapy
- Equine Touch
- Accelerated healing
Maintenance vs Crisis Care
It’s not just professional athletes who recognise the importance of physical therapy to enhance and support their performance. Today most sportspeople have experienced first-hand the benefits that body care treatments provide, and realise they’re essential to avoid injury and to keep the body at its best.
It’s the same for your horse. Regular maintenance is far better than crisis care. And because horses are such stoic animals, this makes maintenance even more important.
Regular bodywork to maintain your horse gives you early warning signs when its body is off-kilter and helps head injury off at the pass.
