Dear Denise,

Below is the e-mail I sent out to my equine friends;

"Sunday's 2012 clinic with Denise Bean was just as informative and dynamic as her first visit to the farm last year. For this visit Denise concentrated on the 3 pressure points in the neck as well as the 5 found in the stifle. She explained in detail how any deviation from the proper position of the neck, head and stifle will cause tension & tightness at these points. Denise then demonstrated direct pressure and cross fiber friction, when to use each and how much of each was needed to soften the tight knots. Each attendee had a horse that they could practice these techniques on....it was hard work, but many of us saw results with our horses immediately!

Denise now has a new DVD available that explains these massage techniques as well as her excellent equine massage book. If you are interested in purchasing either or both sources of information, just visit her website: www.ExclusiveEquestrianServices.com. I love her book and I just got the DVD, which I cannot wait to watch.

Thank you to everybody that came to the clinic and helped to make it such a successful day! "

( Denise, Thanks again for a super clinic! I think everybody left with something to work on at home! As one of my 4-Hers said, "there is sooo much information!". I have had nothing but positive feedback! )

Dear Denise,

The Equine Massage Therapy clinic that was held today at Hope Valley was phenomenal. Denise Bean from Exclusive Equestrian Services did a super job of explaining what massage therapy is and is not. She explained why each horse from the very young to the very old would benefit from it and how we may play an active part in keeping our equine partners functioning at their best. Using Tigger as her model, Denise gave the group a demonstration of several key areas that may be massaged before and after riding our horses. Starting from Tigger’s head and moving towards his hind-end, she described the type of movement or lameness you would expect to see in relation to each site. Denise also explained the different types of pressure that one would use to help break-up any muscle tension found, explaining the importance of us breathing and staying relaxed while we performed the massage. She also described the responses the horse would exhibit during the massage and true to her word, Tigger responded on cue.

The 2nd half of the clinic involved hands-on for everybody. The ponies were all brought into the round pen and everybody had a chance to practice finding tight spots on their horse and trying the massage techniques to help soften them. When tight spots were found it was amazing to see the horse’s response to the massage. In some instances we even saw muscle tremors, which helped us understand exactly how much congestion was in a particular muscle and “the why” that a particular horse moved the way it did because of it.

The session was so worthwhile. Denise’s passion for her work shines through with her instruction and the attention that she gave each of us. I am going see if Denise might do another clinic with us this fall so that those of you that were unable to attend today might be able to do so at a later date.

( Denise, Thank you so very much! The clinic was excellent!! )
