Equine massage

Equine massage therapy is the systematic manipulation of soft tissues to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function or relieve pain.

Equine massage is a non-invasive approach that utilizes hands-on manual therapy. It may also incorporate hydrotherapy and remedial exercise.

Equine massage therapy can be a valuable part of a horse’s ongoing health maintenance plan. It can be used to relieve muscular tension. It also detects signs of strain early on and encourages a more supple and balanced way of going. This can provide important mental down time.

​Equine massage can also be applied in the rehabilitation process, during a horse’s recovery from injury (with veterinary approval). With a whole body approach, massage can also help address secondary issues that may arise as a consequence of the primary injury.
