Whole body wellness for horses and equestrians through massage and nutrition based Health Coaching
Through the use of Massage Therappy, I treat a lot of sports related injuries, but I specialize in stress reduction.
The world is just a crazy place right now.
The first thing clients say when they walk through the door is “You gotta get rid of this pain in my neck & shoulders!”
Your horse knows you’re stressed the minute you open the stall door.
It’s foolish to think you can pick up the reins and communicate clearly with your horse when you’re still wired from the day’s events.
Horses are super intuitive, they pick up on your stress immediately, especially the moment you settle into your saddle.
The stress and tension coming to the bit through your body is evident in your horse’s soft tissue.
On hundreds of occasions I’ve palpated a horse’s neck and shoulders, and immediately knew the rider was gripping with one hand much more than the other.
When your shoulders, arms, wrists and fingers are soft and allowing, your horse’s soft tissue develops a healthy muscle tone.
When you’re tense, your horse responds (and develops) in a similar manner.
Horses are dealing with their own stress.
Environmental, physical…the list goes on and can even create gastric ulcers and other anxiety related issues.
Over the years I’ve learned a lot of techniques to reduce that anxiety.
For the the most part, I use Massage and Magnawave -But on many occasions I act as a liaison to help owners understand the diagnosis given by their Vet.
I’ll gladly have them communicate with other equine Professionals…Saddle Fitters, their Blacksmith, Dentist, Trainers, etc.
The other piece to creating whole body wellness is fitness and nutrition.
The majority of my clients are highly motivated, ambitious Professionals.
They’re working hard to juggle their career, family life, barn and riding responsibilities and much more.
I help them stay centered and balance all those things through good nutrition, exercise and restorative sleep.
