I am certified in Equine Myo-Manipulative Functional Therapy (CEMFT). This includes several techniques such as swedish massage, myofascial release & gua she (this uses a stone tool to remove adhesions) as well as stretching (positional release) to reduce tension and increase range of motion.

I am also certified in Equine Sports Massage Therapy (CESMT) - Equissage Texas. This certification includes a specific sequence using several techniques to increase blood flow into ischemic tissue, separate muscle fibers and reduce or eliminate adhesions and fibrosis.

I have also taken CE classes in Trigger Point Therapy, Fascial Line testing & release. 

Massage can be tailored for the performance or pleasure horse, including retired horses and those on layup or in rehab, and can be used a day or two before an event to prepare, post class for recovery and as a general maintenance program. Depending on your horse’s needs, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly sessions would be recommended.

Some benefits of Equine Massage:

  • Relaxation & Stress Reduction

  • Increased Flexibility of Soft Tissue

  • Reduction of Edema

  • Enhancement of Waste & Toxin Elimination

  • Maintenance of Good Posture & Body Balance

  • Prevention of Atrophy in Inactive Muscles

  • Improvement in Athletic Performance

  • Loosening & Softening of Scar Tissue

  • Release of Endorphins (pain reduction)​

Equine Massage can also be combined with the other modalities I offer such as PEMF, Kinesiology Taping or Phototonic Body Balance.

Depending on your horse I can also incorporate the Hypervolt Massage Gun into your horse's session. This works great for deep tissue percussion, but isn't for every horse.
