I am a certified Equine Massage Therapist, Vertebral Realignment Specialist and Equine Acupuncturist
I strongly believe therapy is a powerful way to get the most out of your horse.
Massage and Vertebral Realignment/Joint Play aids in the manipulation of the soft tissues and skeletal realignment of the body for the purpose of eliciting a response. An increase in both lymphatic and blood circulation, soothe & calm, or stimulate the nervous system, increase range of motion, increase suppleness and mobility, and relax or stimulate musculature.
Acupuncture helps to align all the energy within your horse and to improve blood flow. It can help with old or new injuries as well. There are many different ways acupuncture can help. Just ask me how!
I am certified in acupuncture, massage technique, massage theory, scar tissue reduction, lower limb swelling reduction, hoof heat reduction, behaviour issues with direct physical correlations, deep fascia release, movement of the Cerebral Spinal Fluid, colic relief massage, stretches, hydrotherapy, equine anatomy, palpation and assessment of joints, thrusting technique, appropriate positioning of joints, hand placement and safety protocol.
Does your horse do or show signs of any of the following:
•Dislikes being groomed
•Prefer one rein
•Show lateral stiffness
•Reluctant to canter on one lead
•Cold backed when tacked up
•Lack of poll flexion and bend
•Have an uneven stride length
•Holding the tail to one side
All of the above can be signs of pain and/or discomfort and should be investigated.
