Myo-Manipulative Massage Single Session

Massage is utilized more and more in the treatment and prevention of injuries, stiffness or edema. It has become more broadly used in maintenance and recovery for our Equine Partners. The various benefits of massage are dependent on the horse, but they include:

  • Reduced Inflammation

  • Improved Lymphatic Drainage

  • Relieve Tension

  • Reduce Soreness and feeling fatigue

  • Reduces Trigger points

  • Creates separation of muscle fibers

  • Improves performance by balancing balance and posture

  • Increases range of motion

  • Tones muscles

  • Mobilizes nutrients into the muscles and removes waste products

With specially trained in Myo-Manipulative therapy, we use the body as a whole to heal and treat injuries or soreness. Your session will include shiatsu massage, gua sha, and myo-fascial release. I also include basic evaluation upon physical examination and lameness examination. This may include a saddle fit test as well. 

Myo-Manipulative differs from Massage as a sense that we take into consideration the body as a whole. While Massage is an excellent supportive therapy, it tends to find specific issues and treat it. A Myo-Manipulative session will include attention to the body's meridians and balance. Its specially important for us to be mindful of fascia & connective tissue, as this is what connects everything in the body. 

Time per session 1hr-1hr 30min

Price: $100 for Initial Assessment
Retreatment $75

Kinesiology Taping Application

Kinesio tape when applied correctly lifts the skin, creating a decompression action. This decompression promotes blood and lymph flow which will in turn, decreases edema and swelling associated with inflammation of the tissues.

With every movement during application, it stimulates mechanoreceptors and proprioceptors and inhibits nociceptors. Nociceptor - pain sensors -are inhibited by mechanoreceptors which will equal less pain being perceived. Proprioceptors are stimulated and send impulses to the brain to give it awareness of where the body part's are in both in movement and not.

 

The benefits of K-taping doesn't end when I leave! It has effects as long as the tape stays on, making it extremely helpful and cost effective! 

I am a certified equine kinesiology practioner with Angels Animals Holistic studies, and actually working on both being a fundamental and advanced certified with Sozo Equine. 

Initial Consult includes full examination and palpation with applied tape along 4 various sections. Additional concerned areas or meridian taping is additional at cost of tape per area plus 40% (Example, the Poll could be $5 where as a meridian taping can be up to $20). For a direct quote if you would like certain areas done, please inquire!

Complete Myo-Manipulative Therapy Package

My favorite service to offer for your equine partners as it includes everything I have to offer as a therapist. So many wonderful modalities that pair so wonderful together. The session will include:

Shiatsu Massage uses energy meridians similar to those found in acupressure and acupuncture points. These energy meridians are used to restore any restrictions found with these meridians for maximum flexibility and comfort of the horse. It is used to not only manage physical concerns, but also emotional and mental as well. 

 

The Myofascial techniques are used to release fascial adhesions typically found in stress points and scar tissue. The various techniques uses in this part of the massage will aid in breaking down the fascia adhesions and improving movement and decreasing pain associated with soft tissue injuries. 

Craniosacral therapy communicates with the central nervous system and the fascia. With skilled hands and knowledge, the craniosacral system can be touched lightly to stimulate the bodys own healing properties, and aid in removing any restrictions within the CNS. The aim is to stimulate the parasympathetic system, and decrease the activity in the sympathetic system - their fight or flight.  

Your horse's session will include treatments using myo-manipulative techniques with shiatsu, Gua Sha and myo-fascial release as listed above and will also include craniosacral, cupping, acupressure/acupuncture, laser therapy and Kinesio taping (up to 2 areas, additional areas will incur a fee of 10$ per area) You can read more about what they offer below

Red Laser/Cold Laser Therapy 

The use of laser therapy is primarily used in the aid of healing, reducing inflammation and promoting cell repair. It stimulates blood & ATP which are the energy source for cells (blood carries cells & oxygen). ATP triggers cell responses (growth) following an injury. This is also true for muscle tissues as well due to ATP synthesis. 

When an animal gets injured, blood rushes to the area carrying specialized cells to start the process of healing, which what we see as inflammation. By using red laser, we help the cells repairs and regenerate and reduce the inflammation, cutting healing time in half!

Benefits & Uses:

  • Through various stimulations we will bring more oxygen into the area to promote healing & recovery. 

  • Laser has also been noted to help stimulate hair follicles, and will thus provide a smaller scar & faster hair regrowth.

  • Laser therapy has shown to have have analgesic affect on nerves, helping with pain control. 

Laser can:

  • Reduce Inflammation

  • Improve healing

  • Regeneration of tissue

  • Nerve pain relief

  • Increased circulation & oxygen to area

  • Muscle recovery

All Laser sessions include a full body evaluation and treatment along with a lymphatic massage

Time per session: 1hr -1hr 30 min

Price: $100 Initial Assessment
Retreatment $70

Cupping: Myofascial Decompression Therapy

Cupping is a different approach on the myofascial structures that lie beneath the skin. Cupping uses a decompression effect (similar to Kinesiology tape!) to heal the fascia below and can target both level 1 fascia (just beneath the skin, very superficial) and level 2 fascia (connecting to muscles and tissues). The fascia is what connects everything in the body, therefore a restriction in one place can cause implications in an entirely different place. This is why it is so important. 

Benefits of cupping can include 

  • Release Fascial Restrictions and Adhesions

  • Remodel Scar Tissue

  • Reduce pain in trigger points

  • Improve circulation

  • Improve Lymphatic flow

  • Promote mobility and range of motion

  • Improves mature scars

Cupping will create a negative pressure therefore decompressing the fascia below it. With this decompression, it separates the fascia layers beneath and allows the fascia to unwind and lubricate itself once again. Decompression by cupping will break up adhesions and improve the glide and movement of the entire fascial line. This also will help with nerve endings, as the unrestricted fascia will improve neural ending function, decrease pain and improve proprioception. 

Cupping sessions begin with manual massage and gua sha to warm the tissues up, while the cupping works deeper beneath the service. This is not for every horse and can be something horse’s do not enjoy due to the fact it is a lot more abrasive, just like how some people do not like or can handle cupping - the same applies for horses. 

Time per session 30min-45min for initial, 15min-20min for retreatments

Price: $60 Initial Assessment
$30 retreatment

Kinesiology Show Service

Using the decompression effect of Kinesio Taping, I use basic protocols to ensure maximized recovery before and after hard performance such as showing. By applying the tape we can help prevent inflammation and pain on the hard working muscles of your athlete. 

I also use supportive taping for overnight to allow relief of these muscles, and incorporate the meridians of the horse to ensure a well state of mind. 

This price includes a thorough examination with multiple tapings for both support, well being and pain reduction.  I typically recommend a session the morning of or night before your Show.
