Equine Massage Therapy

Tissue manupulation to reduce pain and improve circulation

Massage is the process of manipulating soft tissues for a therapeutic effect. It has been practiced by humans for thousands of years and is considered the most ancient method of pain management. Our equine friends can benefit from massage just as much as humans.

Our Approach

Massage sessions involve a thorough evaluation and palpation of the horse followed by a tailored treatment focused on release of myofascial restrictions and trigger points within the muscles. Dr. Waring-Scott’s history of lameness diagnosis and treatment give her a deep understanding of the compensation patterns from pain and how to best manage them.

Commonly Treated Aliments

Modern massage techniques have been shown to have the following beneficial effects:

  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce chronic pain
  • Improve limb range of motion
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Relieve sore muscles
  • Improve recovery from strenuous exercise

Massage sessions can be used as a solo therapeutic or in combination with chiropractic adjustments or acupuncture.
