This massage is normally performed every 8 weeks or 12 weeks, however some owners can only manage every 6 months after an Initial Assessment & Massage. Like most therapies, regular equine massage sessions are always better as a prevention instead of a cure. Regular sessions create a healthy musculoskeletal system.
What to expect:
Static and Dynamic Assessment which includes Palpation, Passive stretches, Conformation and Gait Analysis.
After an Initial Assessment & Massage; key areas of tension and characteristic problems of the individual horse/pony will be known and monitored for improvement and recurrence. Early detection of signs of tension and discomfort is the best way to stop potentially bigger problems occurring.
A "Plan of Action" will be in place after the Initial Assessment & Massage and the therapist will check for an updates, changes and improvements with the horse/pony and modify it if required. Finally the client will receive a report of findings from the massage session.
