Equine sports massage is a full body massage for the horse outlining specific target areas that may be tight or have lingering effects of injury. The over all benefits of massage help with muscle elasticity, increased flexibility, strength, improvement of old scar tissue, and over all well being.
Equine Athletes Services:
I take care to provide my customers with high quality services personalized for their unique needs. I received my Equine Body Worker Certification through the school of Equinology in Northern California from instructor Debranne Pattillo in 2006. Equinology is approved by the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Body Work as a continuing education provider. I am also a member of the I.E.B.W.A. and insured through ABMP. Through the years I have expanded my knowledge by learning different techniques which I am able to use to cater to the specific needs of each horse.
Acupressure and Jin Shin Jyutsu techniques
Acupressure like acupuncture is a traditional Chinese Medicine approach to health. It is a technique that is used to move qi (pronounced chee) energy and to support the correct flow of qi in the body system. Strengthening the correct flow of qi creates optimum physical and emotional health of the horse by strengthening particular areas of the body that may be stuck or blocked. Jin Shin Jyutsu is very similar for it works with pressure points as well, over a larger area. Both modalities can help with Immune function, Lung function, Blood vessel and Heart function, Urinary tract systems, such as Kidney and Bladder, Cardiovascular systems, Digestive systems, Muscles, Tendons, Ligaments and Joints of the horse, as well as the overall mind and spirit.
Reiki and Bach Flower Remedy
Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique of using energy to create a calming and healing effect. It is in a sense transferring universal energy in the form of qi (or life force) to the body of the horse by laying on hands. Bach flower remedies, are dilutions of flower materials and were discovered by Edward Bach,who was an English Bacteriologist who believed the essences of the flowers to contain healing properties. They are used for stress, anxiety, and depression as well as a number of other conditions.
