ABOUT HORSE SENSE THERAPIES
I am a qualified Equine Sports Massage Therapist, fully insured and a member of IAAT (International Association of Animal Therapists). I am passionate about horses and have a wealth of experience with them and as a horse owner myself I understand what our horses mean to us and that we want the best for them.
So you may be asking - What is Equine Sports Massage Therapy?
It’s the therapeutic application of “hands-on” massage techniques for the purpose of increasing circulation, eliminating toxins, enhancing muscle tone, relieving tension, relaxing muscle spasms and increasing the range of motion in horses.
Who is Equine Sports Massage for?
In short, every horse - Sports Massage can benefit all horses from the leisure horse through to the competition horse by using a variety of techniques. It is extremely useful as a therapeutic and preventative measure and promotes good health and general well-being.
Remember we as horse owners, riders and competitors from time to time can feel the effects of the work we do whether it be in or out of the saddle. We know how much massage can help to address these issues - our horses are just the same. Horses can not tell us there is a problem but they can show us. So ask yourself does my horse demonstrate any of the following: stiffness on one rein, crookedness, head tossing, tail swishing, shortened or stilted strides, difficulty in canter strike off, disunited canter, poor outline/hollowing, contact issues, saddle slipping to one side, tripping, difficulty to be tacked-up, napping, reluctance to be groomed in certain areas, bucking into canter, reluctance to work up or downhill, refusing to stand still to be mounted ..... and so the list goes on! We sometimes look at these factors as behavioural problems - but is there a reason for this?
So what is it TheraPlate ?????
TheraPlate is a platform designed for the horse to stand on. It DOES NOT VIBRATE in fact it uses Vortex Wave Technology (small circular movements - think whirlpool) which causes an energy to stimulate muscle contractions which increases circulation so it works from the inside out and is totally impact and concussion FREE. This treatment is proven to be fantastic for conditioning, performance and rehabilitation.
FACT - Your horse does not have to be injured to use it. But if it has sustained an injury regular TheraPlate treatments have been shown to reduce healing time.
There have been amazing results from horse owners over the years making this treatment invaluable to every equine owner, trainer and rider. Whatever level you train at you and your horse will benefit from this treatment.
Horse Sense Therapies - TheraPlate North offers a friendly mobile service, competitive rates and is committed to helping all equestrians. Feel free to contact me to discuss treatment for your horse.
