MASSAGE THERAPY – EQUINE

MASSAGE THERAPY – EQUINE

Horses of all ages and levels of exercise can benefit from our massage therapy services.  This is another great combination to work in conjunction with our other alternative medicine services, especially Chiropractic.  From the geriatric member of the family who hangs out in the back yard to the most competitive of athletes. Massage is a non-invasive therapy that can be performed in your horse’s stall both at home or at a horse show. It’s great as a warm up, cool down, or simply for maintenance of your horse’s overall well-being. We help treat sports related injuries and improve your horse’s overall quality of life.

Each horse is an individual in how they respond to therapy. Horses generally enjoy it very much and learn to relax easily to allow the muscle tension and spasms to be eased. We are able to treat your horse with no equipment needed so there is little risk for your horse.
