Osteopath, sports massage and dry-needling therapist for horses:
For the perfect harmony between horse and rider!
“What is special about the way I work with horses is not so much that I do something, but mainly how I work with these animals.”
Regular massaging of your horse helps prevent injuries and ensures the well-being of your horse, which allows it to develop positively. Please consider the maintenance contract! Maintenance massages vary by horse. Once every three or four months will do for a horse used for pleasure riding, whereas a high-level sport horse will suffice with once every two to three weeks.
Back problems are quite common and they are often caused by tension in the horse's neck.
It’s possible that your horse suffers from a muscle problem. Even with vague symptoms, where the vet could not see a clear deviation or make a clear diagnosis, a sports massage could help.
60% of the total body mass of a horse consists of muscles.
A muscle or tendon injury is often already present in latent form. Sports massage has a preventive effect. By massage, early muscle tensions are found and remedied before they can lead to real problems.
Muscle problems may be more common than you think. Stress arises due to these muscle problems. A horse is naturally a willing animal, but sometimes it will not (or no longer) be able to do certain exercises because of the association with pain.
