I worked for five years in the field of human massage therapy before working with horses. I have practiced over 500 equine massages on a variety of horses. I massage horses using the same principles of Swedish massage applied to equine muscle anatomy. I am inspired by JoAnn Wilson and Jack Meagher's neuro-muscular sports massage techniques, which take into account bio-mechanics of muscle movement and common affected areas, as well as detailed equine muscle anatomy & physiology study. My massage studies at the Swedish Insititute of Massage Therapy NYC focused on muscle anatomy & physiology (origin, insertion, and function of each muscle) in relation to Swedish massage and acupressure and I aim to approach the horse with this same level of detail.
I believe in educating interested owners/riders in basic massage techniques which can be done to benefit the horse between scheduled sessions with a massage therapist.
Massage sessions are individually tailored to the horse's needs, personality, performance demands, and sensitivity.
My goal always is improved performance, comfort, well-being and injury prevention of both horse and rider.
