Equine Massage Therapy by Alexander Hartdegen
Massage has been around for centuries, even animal massage. Equine massage therapy is working on the muscles of the equine body to condition, rehabilitate and/or relax the horse. The number one goal of massage therapy is to have a pain free contraction of muscle. The general purpose is to decrease swelling, having the general benefits of touch, increase respiration and metabolism plus relax or stimulate the nervous system and muscles. Some treatments I use for a horse’s condition are massage therapy, hydrotherapy, and exercise therapy. Some cases when I use massage therapy are mechanical stress, tension, trauma, overuse or arthritis.
When giving your horse a massage communication is key to knowing what the animal enjoys or when the horse is in pain. Here are some hints on a horse’s body language: when a horse gives you a gentle nudge, it means “give me attention” or “I’m itchy”. When the horse’s eyes are dull it means exhaustion, extreme pain, or sickness. When the ears are forward it indicates interest and even the tail can tell you what mood the horse is in.
