Bodywork Tailored to the Equestrian
Equestrians use all different body parts to remain in balance with their horse. The legs and core hold us on and remain in balance. The upper body of the shoulders, neck and head must also remain in balance, looking where we need to go, making connection in the rein and not interfering with the horses neck and mouth. Consistent bodywork helps the rider establish balance within their body, make them more flexible and pliable in the saddle which in turn helps the horse more comfortable under saddle.
What is a session like?
Currently equestrian bodywork sessions are offered in your home or facility. You supply the space, everything else comes with me, including but not limited to a comfortable and safe massage table, freshly laundered sheets, freshly laundered blanket and hypoallergenic lotion.
You will be asked to complete a client intake form before your session. This form can actually be printed here or completed online. We will discuss any areas of concern/issues and develop a plan for the session.
For your session, you will be asked to undress to your level of comfort. If you are most comfortable remaining fully clothed, that is absolutely ok! Some techniques are more effective with skin/skin contact, but all parts of the body can be worked clothed or unclothed. If you choose to undress, please be aware that I practice Medical Massage draping protocol, which in essence means that the only part of your body exposed will be the portion that I am currently working on. For example, if I am working on your right arm, only that arm will be exposed. All other body parts will remain covered.

Massage ~Consisting of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release
Trigger Point Therapy
