Equine Massage - What are the Benefits?

Equine Massage can have a profound effect on the nervous system! 
The moment we touch the horse, messages are sent to the nervous system through the skin, creating electrical signals which travel through the body. 
Endorphins (the body's natural painkiller) are released which aid pain relief and a sense of well being. This has a direct effect on the Autonomic Nervous System and when the body is less stressed and the pain reduced, it can produce positive chemical changes in the body. 
As the skin is so sensitive, massage can play a huge part to allow the body to relax and promote healing. As it increases the blood flow, it can also help maintain the skins elasticity and bring healthy oils to the surface. 
Some of the main benefits are: 
  • Pain Relief
  • Relief from restlessness
  • More efficient movement through the joints and body
  • Improved Posture
  • Support for the Immune System
  • Injury prevention/healing
  • Increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to release toxins 
  • Improves suppleness and flexibility
  • Improves gait and stride length
  • Improves performance and relaxation
Equine Sports & Rehabiliation Massage is specifically designed to work with horses of all disciplines, whether it is Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing, a Happy Hacker or a Retired Companion. 
                                            Every massage treatment is bespoke to each individual horse!
