A few years later I attended massage therapy school to become licensed to work on people so that I could work on horse and rider teams. With training in both fields, I am able to provide the entire team with the best possible care.
What has been your most rewarding experience as a massage therapist?
What is the worst case that you have encountered?
|Upon arrival to my facility.|
|One year later.|
Weather absolutely plays a part in the results for massage. During warm months it is super-easy to zip through a whole body massage in about an hour and see outstanding results. The warmth allows the blood to remain in the outer tissues longer which allows the body more time to heal itself. During cold months I have to spend much more time getting circulation to and softening the tissue before the true work can begin.
Is there a basic massage that I can do to help my horse?
If you want to do some hands on, try long strokes in the direction of your horses hair. You don’t need to apply much pressure This technique is typically referred to as effleurage.
How often should a healthy horse have a massage?
Personally, I get a massage at least once a month and twice when I'm stressed.
