Equine Sports Massage
Equine Sports Massage is a hands on therapy which is used alongside veterinary procedures and in many cases in association with chiropractors, remedial saddlers and farriers. Equine Sports Massage uses a range of professional techniques such as muscle energy techniques, active and passive stretches and Swedish massage. Equine Sports Massage is a therapy which covers the whole of the equine body relieving muscle tension and compensatory tension. It works on nearly all of the muscles and soft tissues on the animal, however it has also been proven to have positive effects on the skin and other systems such as the nervous, skeletal, circulatory and lymphatic systems. Equine Sports Massage can be used on every horse, pony and donkey from the field companion to the top athlete in every discipline.
