The muscular system of the horse relies heavily on the skeletal system and vice versa. When muscles are tight and tense, they can pull joints and vertebrae out of line. When joints and bones are out of line, they can nip nerves and cause muscle spasms.
A range of integrated therapies (EQUINE bodywork, Veterinary Physiotherapy, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Sports Massage, Shiatsu, Cold Laser Therapy and Trigger Point Therapy) to support specific goals such as reducing inflammation, aiding recovery, preventing atrophy (wasting) of muscles, increasing range of motion, releasing restrictions, relieving pain/discomfort, or establishing trust with a horse recovering from trauma/injury.

In summary, equine bodywork, Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, and massage take time. If the horse has pain or has restriction issues, it may take more than one session to fully relieve them. How often treatment is required is determined by whether his problem is a primary or secondary issue, workload, and level of training. Maintenance sessions are recommended for chronic conditions, higher level athletes and horse’s under stress.
