Equine Massage Therapy

What are the Benefits of Equine Massage?

Equine Massage...

  • equine therapist Denise Bean-Raymond massages the back of a horse Increases the flow of nutrient-rich blood to the muscle tissue which allows the flushing out of cellular waste and excessive fluid, promoting healing.
  • Enhances learning and training. Mental acuity and learning benefit from increased blood flow and restored balance. Increased emotional and mental relaxation and blood flow to the brain lay the groundwork for mental clarity, and thus, improved learning and training.
  • Improves the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Because massage increases the number of red blood cells in the horseʼs system, it in turn eases the strain on the heart. It stimulates the lymphatic system which supports the bodyʼs defense against disease.
  • Relieves muscle tension and pain, allowing muscles to function properly andat full capacity, thus aiding in the prevention of injury and/or strain.
  • Decreases inflammation in the joints and releases endorphins, or hormones, both of which alleviate pain.
  • Enhances muscle tone. It helps prevent and reduce atrophy (muscle loss).
  • equine therapist Denise-Bean-Raymond massages the hindquarters of a horseLengthens connective tissue, thereby increasing the horseʼs range of motion. This allows for longer strides, easier gait and lead changes; better jumping, turning and maneuvering, and increased speed and endurance.
  • Improves the general demeanor and disposition of the horse.
  • May serve as an alternative to drug therapy. Pharmaceuticals often mask a problem rather than resolve it. A horse owner can often use massage therapy frequently and effectively as an economical way to restore and maintain a horseʼs mobility, reducing other professional expenses.
  • Aging, elderly and those healing from an illness or injury better maintain their muscle condition and strength through massage.
  • Competition horses enjoy reduced stress levels and relief from physical rigors of competition with regular massage.
  • It is much easier to prevent a problem, rather than have to address one once it has occurred. Massage is often overlooked a preventative tool. It is a wonderful therapy for prevention of injury and/or strain.
  • Horses for sale should be massaged frequently to show them at their best to potential buyers.
