Your horse is an athlete, a partner, and your companion. For millions of years, equines have learned to hide pain and block tension so that weakness is not detected and survival is continued. Over time, unavoidable muscle tension and stress builds up, eventually hindering fluid movement. This leads to restricted range of motion, unsoundness and possible temperament changes. Regular release of tension through integrated bodywork and massage can help prevent lameness issues from surfacing or developing into a more serious condition. By working with the muscles, soft tissue tension release helps restore normal range of motion, keeping your horses comfortable, healthy, and performing at their best.
Bodywork and massage are not to be in place of proper veterinary care. Your horse's bodyworker is an integral member of your equine health care team, including your vet, farrier, and equine dentist.
