Equine Sports Massage
About Equine Sports MASSAGE
Equine sports massage uses the hands, fingers and elbows of the therapist to target tight muscles and acupressure points. We manipulate the soft tissue to loosen muscles, joints, tendons; increase blood flow and lymphatic activity; and reduce stress. Sports massage is used in exercise warm-up; cool down; general maintenance; pre- and post-competition; and post-injury or rehabilitation of both working animals and pets.

PREPARATION FOR TREATMENT
Please be present and timely for the first session. Once you are an established client and we have worked with your animal, you may choose whether to be present for the treatment. Avoid booking your treatment during feeding times to prevent distraction. A quiet stall or room is best for treatment to aid in relaxation and healing.
10-15 minutes of light exercise is encouraged to continue circulation of blood flow and release of toxins. Hand-walking, a short walk, or turnout for your animal is beneficial. Water is important to aid the release of toxins through the bladder. While some animals show immediate improvement, regular massage is recommended for best results.
