“Horses hold the cumulative affects of their service to humans. We must give back by helping them heal so that together, horse and human can live at their highest potential”. – Kathleen Nightingale

Our horses take care of us in many ways, so it’s important to take care of them and how they perform…

“The muscle system of the horse is the most overlooked system of the horse because muscles; damaged or not, do not show up on xrays.”  – James Rooney, DVM

Equine sports massage therapy takes care of those “unseen” muscles. After all, horses do so much for us, and are so much more than just an animal to horse lovers.

“All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he’ll listen to me all day.”

So when our best friend isn’t feeling their best, it’s time to take care of them on every level, as well as maintain their health and well-being BEFORE they get injured.

Kathleen uses Equine Sports Massage deep tissue techniques to the voluntary muscle system.

Sports massage differs from other forms of massage in that it focuses on the cause of muscle injury, with the intent of not just relieving muscular pain but assisting in the PREVENTION of future injuries to the muscles.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Increased Circulation
  • Reduced Muscle Spasms
  • Relieved Tension
  • Enhanced Muscle Tone
  • Promotion of Healing
  • Increased Range of Motion

“The evident pleasure which stroking gives to animals, and the delight tired horses, dogs and cats take in rolling, are convincing proofs of the health-giving effect of massage.”
