Gentle and effective therapy
Equine Massage Therapy is a generic and collective term that refers to the intellectual manipulation of the varied layers of soft tissue structures that lay beneath the horse’s skin.
A variety of individual and integrated skills belong within the artistry of equine massage therapy.
Each one is specifically designed to effectively contribute to the detection, resolution and healing of various malfunctions present within the specific body tissues and structures.
There are many physical and psychological benefits to equine massage therapy. These include:
Draining & Stimulating the Lymphatic system, optimizing the removal of toxins from the horse’s body
Balancing the Nervous system and stimulating the Parasympathetic Nervous system, known as the “Relaxation Response”.
Relaxing & Repairing Muscular Malfunctions

Permission from your vet is required before booking
Whether your horse is sound, a little “off” or lame I must have your vet’s permission to perform massage before treatment. while massage is non-invasive and generally safe, the Vets act * specifies that therapists must be fully qualified to give treatment to healthy horses but permission can be given to students in training. Once I have fully qualified permissions are only required when treating a horse in rehabilitation stages and usually as part of a professional team. Please choose a form type below (click on moving images).
My training is through Centaur Equine Massage Training, regulated by UK Rural Skills. I have so far completed all “hands on” training days and all written modules. I am in the process of completing 10 case studies and then to sit a final exam.
* RCVS supporting guidance to veterinary act 1966, 2015 exemptions 19.24.
