Equine sports massage (ESM) is the therapeutic application of professional sports massage techniques developed and used for human athletes, applied to the horse. ESM employs non-invasive, hands-on techniques to reduce muscular tension, fatigue, stress or strain which lead to musculoskeletal problems. These techniques accomplish this through increased circulation, reduction of muscle spasms (stress points), resolution of muscle soreness, improving lymphatic drainage and flushing of excess lactic acid.
Horse trainers know that one of the most difficult things is maintaining consistent peak fitness. ESM addresses the physiological effects of repetitive training and competition demands, soft-tissue problems and well as injury rehabilitation. The techniques used by Equi-Ther L.L.C. are not the "light feel-good sessions" you may have experienced in the past. This is actual deep-tissue work, that may cause some soreness the following day or two, but the results are unmistakable. My goal is the free up the restricted areas in the horse's body and allow the horse to reach it's full potential.
