Benefits of Soft Tissue Bodywork
Whether you compete in a show ring or just ride for pleasure, your horse is an athlete and can benefit from regular massage therapy sessions as well as other bodywork modalities.

DISCLAIMER: Massage therapy is not a substitute for veterinary medicine. It is most effective when used as a preventative measure before or after competition. By breaking up the tight knots of adhering fibers, which restrict full muscle extension, massage can prevent a pull or a muscle tear from occurring during exercise. Massage may be used in conjunction with current veterinary care. Please consult your vet with any concerns prior to scheduling your massage session.
