Massage & More
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:
Improved Lymphatic Drainage
Reduce Soreness and feeling fatigue
Reduces Trigger points
Creates separation of muscle fibers
Improves performance by balancing balance and posture
Increases range of motion
Mobilizes nutrients into the muscles and removes waste products
Other therapies are used such as Shiatsu Massage, Myofascial release & saddle fitting.
Still actively training for CEMT but qualified to offer free massages for case study/log hours to complete certification. Contact me to learn more!
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.
Initial Consult includes full examination and palpation with applied tape along 3 various sections. Additional concerned areas or meridian taping is additional 20$ per area. For a direct quote if you would like certain areas done, please inquire!
Complete Massage Package
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.
Your horse's session will include treatments using myo-manipulative therapy, craniosacral, acupressure and Kinesio taping (up to 2 areas, additional areas will concur a fee of 20$ per area)

Massage Show Service
Offering massage sessions for your equine athlete during shows to help them recover and perform their best!
You can schedule directly with Morgan for local shows (Edmonton area, OR keep an eye on Facebook for shows she is attending in Alberta)
If you have enough horses/clients or can put together a group within the showing grounds, I offer a discounted rate for shows I am not planned to attend.
Your massage will include the same as a regular massage with added K taping and craniosacral, but will also include more extensive support K taping as well as meridian work.
*Show services are best night before, morning of or after. Allow 3 hours before performance time if doing same day*
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.
I tape all areas of concern and focus on muscles specific for your discipline, and also tape along a meridian best suited for your horse's well being. Support tapings are usually applied to the legs, while pain reduction can be applied to neck, back and stifles.
This is an excellent deal as initial consults only include 3 areas - with performance protocols, we can tape upwards of 8 various areas.
*Show services are best night before, morning of or immediately after. Allow 3 hours before performance time if doing same day*
