Equine sports massage
I started my career as a small animal veterinary nurse but then turned to work with horses. I have many years of experience within equestrian teaching, working with event horses and in hunting yards and livery yards. In 2013 I trained in equine sports massage with ICAT and since helping many competition horses keep supple and athletic throughout the competition season, along with helping to rehabilitate post injury or trauma. This then led to me wanting to work with the human athlete with sports massage, which I trained in 2018 with Core elements (FHT). Not only is this great for a regular athlete but I’ve helped many horse and rider combinations too. To help with suppleness and straightness within their training. To benefit from sports massage neither horse or rider needs to be a competitive athlete, many of my clients do not ride or focus on sports. Sports massage has huge and varied benefits that can also help with and prevent injuries.
Most common injuries I help with:
Lower back pain,
Rotator cuff injury.
Many people regularly benefit from a deep tissue sports massage, as this helps to keep the muscle fascia, ligaments and tendons supple and more flexible, along with a programme of stretching exercises. Clients find this programme is great for maintaining a pain free body, and enables a comfortable lifestyle.
