WHY EQUINE MASSAGE THERAPY?                                                                                                                                                                      Equine Massage Therapy helps to relieve areas of discomfort and to help the horse get back to working/moving their best.  The Therapist can feel for any swelling, tightness, spasms, stress points, and uneven muscle tone across your horse's body.  Areas that are manipulated on the horse's body during a treatment include muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.  Equine Massage Therapy is beneficial to all horses whether used for riding, competing, or companionship.

Benefits of Massage:

  • Increases blood flow to muscles

  • Releases natural pain relieving endorphins
  • Enhances muscle tone
  • Improves circulation
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves joint mobility
  • Promotes healing
WHAT IS KINESIOLOGY TAPING WITH ROCKTAPE AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The goal when using RockTape is to decrease pain and increase movement. When applied, it creates a decompressive effect causing the skin to microscopically lift away from the muscle and fascia (fibrous tissue) allowing for more room for the tissues and muscles to move together more fluidly. Also, through the skin's nerves, RockTape is able to signal the central nervous system to provide powerful feedback to minimize pain and maximize form.
Benefits of RockTape:
  • Reduces pain/sensitivity
  • Reduces fatigue
  • Reduces swelling & promote recovery
  • Allow better flow of Lymphatic/Superficial blood flow
  • Improves awareness of body position
  • Improves posture
  • Increase oxygenation to tissues
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Wear for 3-5 days
  • Allows full range of motion while providing support and stability.
