Equine Massage

Like the benefits of massage on the human body, Equine Massage helps to strengthen and regulate the horse's Respiratory, Circulatory, Immune and Gastrointestinal functions. Massage therapy can accelerate recovery from soft tissue injury, improve muscle tone and wellness, improve performance and enhance the quality of the horse's movement, as well as aid in the prevention of injuries to muscles and ligaments. Massage therapy helps to decrease inflammation in the joints and releases endorphins and other hormones to alleviate pain while decreasing the production of stress hormones. It relaxes and soothes the horse's nervous system, aids in digestion, and improves muscular flexibility.

Initial Equine Massage Session (90 - 100 minutes) - $150*

Includes consultation, conformation and gait analysis, full body massage with passive range of motion (PROM), passive and active stretching.

*Travel fees may apply. See below for details.
