Equine Sports Massage Therapy – this differs from other forms of massage as it focuses on the cause of muscle injury so that future injuries can be prevented as well as relieving muscular pain.

Benefits of Sports Massage:

  • Enhances muscle tone
  • Increases range of movement
  • Balances the body by treating it as a whole not just individual parts
  • Promotes healing by improving circulation so more nutrients go to the muscles and toxins and excessive fluids are carried away
  • Reduces inflammation and swelling in the joints so alleviating pain
  • Has a positive affect on the contractual and release process of the muscles. When tension is released the muscles can relax
  • Releases endorphins, a natural pain relief
  • Helps prevent injury to muscles, tendons and bones

Why Massage?

  • Over 60% of a horses body weight is muscle – they’re important!
  • Muscles respond to stress or injury by over contracting thereby putting stress on opposing muscles or joints
  • Muscles are often sore because of injury, cooling too fast, structural imbalances, overstretching or overloading
  • Muscles affect each other, if one set of muscles is tight, the horse will compensate by tensing and employing other muscles
  • Horses anticipate pain- their gait will become short and choppy

Problems a Sports Massage can help

  • Tension in back and neck
  • Forging
  • Head tossing
  • Kissing spine
  • Hollowness
  • Lack of engagement
  • Muscle imbalance
  • One sidedness
  • Short strides
  • Arthritic stiffness
  • Muscle wastage
  • Wrong canter lead
  • Crookedness

Erika also provides other Equine services:

  • Coaching
  • Horse sitting
  • Rehabilitation
