I am certified in many different aspects of Equine bodywork and am continuing with that into the future. I am a certified ESMT (Equine Sports Massage Therapist), in Kinesiology taping, Acupressure and recently received my certification in PEMF or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy through Magnawave. To understand the aspects of what I do, I will explain what the modalities I work with do and how they can help your horse.

Equine Sports Massage Therapy

Massage is the manipulation of muscle tissue. Just as humans get massages to work out muscle issues in their body, so it is for horses as well, particularly sport horses in competition. Most issues occur over a period of time and I have found that most people think that chiropractic procedures are what horses need when it can be far from the truth. There are times where chiropractic is necessary but normal routine massage can keep a horses body on track better than chiropractic. Massage, like I said, is the manipulation of muscle tissue where as chiropractic is the manipulation of joints. I always recommend that if your horse needs chriopractic work, that it is best that the horse receive a massage prior to the proceedure. Why? Think about it like this,

Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy - PEMF

Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy or PEMF is a modality that helps increase cellular activity, blood flow, alleviate pain and increase healing to the entire body and/or target areas and specific injuries. It can drastically increase the healing time of any injury and alleviate pain to that injured area from minor cuts and lacerations to broken bones. It is not a magical cure and each horse's reaction time to this particular modality is different but the results I have seen have been amazing. I use it on my own horses, as well as my dogs and myself. I am certified through Magnawave to administer this modality to horses, small animals and people.
