Initial Assessment and Treatment:
The initial treatment will include a physical assessment of your horse both static and in motion at walk and trot to give an idea of any compensatory or unevenness in its way of going.
A full body massage will then take up to an hour. The treatment will be finished with some stretches and any recommendations for maintaining your horses physical condition can be discussed.
Please allow 2 hours.
Follow up Treatment:
Follow up treatments will depend on the findings of the initial assessment and treatment. These can take up to an hour.
- If possible please book an appointment outside of yard feeding and turnout times as your horse will benefit most when it is in a calm relaxed state.
- Please ensure horses are clean and dry prior to treatment.
- Ideally the owner needs to be present.
- A discount for multiple horses on the same yard is available.
- All payments are in cash at the end of the treatment.
- Horses benefit from a gentle hack in a long outline or a day in the field post treatment to aid muscle adjustment and re-balancing.
I am qualified, accredited and insured as a equine massage therapist. My training and qualification allows me to treat muscles and muscular related problems. I will recommend any conditions that I find outside the remit of massage therapy to be treated by a your vet.
All therapists need permission from a vet before carrying out any treatments (Veterinary Act 1966), therefore I will need written or verbal confirmation or am happy to contact your vet on your behalf before the initial treatment.
