Horse, human and hound...we all have one thing in common; we are all made up of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia and therefore all prone to muscular stress and injury. 

Massage has been popular for many years and is becoming more widely accepted for animals. We should not perceive it to be a luxury for the modern-day 'pampered pet' and instead appreciate its endless benefits.

Whether your beloved horse or dog is young or old; competes or is retired; a companion or happy hacker, massage therapy is one way to protect and rehabilitate from everyday stresses, enhance quality of life and optimise physical and emotional well-being. 

Some benefits:

  • release of muscular stress, spasm and tension, stress points and trigger points
