Rider Massage - What are the Benefits?

As a rider, we often forget about ourselves and put the priority on the health and well being of our beloved equine! 
However, what we don't realise is that if we are not relaxed, balanced and supple, this can have a profound effect on the way we ride and the way the horse moves underneath us! 
Our physical health and well being is important in the everyday world but just as important as a rider to obtain effective balance between horse and rider. 
If you have tension or stiffness in areas of your body for example, it can affect the way you sit and move in the saddle and can create a knock on effect through your horse's balance. Have you ever felt "crooked" when you ride or felt you rode better on one rein than the other? 
Massage treatments on us as a rider have exactly the same benefits as that of the equine, so can not only help you to feel physically and mentally well, but can help create a better working harmony between you and your horse when you ride. 
Some of the main benefits are: 
  • Pain Relief
  • Reduced muscle tension and improved circulation

  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system

  • Reduction of stress hormones

  • Relaxation.

  • Improved skin tone

  • Improved recovery of soft tissue injuries

  • More efficient movement through the joints and body
  • Improved Posture
  • Support for the Immune System
  • Increases blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to release toxins 
  • Improves suppleness and flexibility
       Every massage is bespoke to each individual rider!
       You don't have to be a rider to benefit from Massage Treatments!
       Whether you are a groom, farrier, driver etc, I treat everyone!
