What can it treat?
Massage seeks out areas of both emotional and physical stress so any negative influences can be eradicated and the horse can be restored restored to a state of positive health.
Touch-shy horses who can over react to physical sensations such as having a saddle or rug put on, or simply being groomed, can benefit from techniques designed to calm nerve innervation.
For horses that are sleepy and unresponsive to stimulation, massage can awaken them. A sharp horse can be emotionally re-balanced to show a more softened edge to its character. A horse that lives on his nerves can experience more calming sensations with feelings of safety.
Basically, if your horse is giving you cause for concern or you are simply curious to find out how your horses performance can be enhanced through massage, get in touch and have a chat!
