Equine Massage & Behavioral Therapy
THIS >>> is a perfect example of how massage therapy can help and heal your horse, no matter what age, in just one session. CUDOS to my client for contacting me to see if I could help her new (and absolutely sweet, adorable and well behaved!) 5 month old Arabian weanling colt. He had a tilted head and straight/stiff neck apparently since birth. She has had him less than a week and is doing everything in her power to help this future super star. Clients like this need to be acknowledged for their commitment to their horses’ well-being!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😄
Below are 2 before pics depicting his head tilt and neck carriage (Before) my massage session, and 2 (After) pictures of him bending his neck (all on his own as he realizes he can) afterwards. This is genuine proof how much hands-on massage therapy can help a horse even with a serious issue.
My client also wisely set up a Chiropractic session the same day immediately after my session which revealed he was out of alignment. This also shows how these two therapies go hand-in-hand....
UPDATE: GREAT NEWS>>> She says her weanling is now acting like a normal horse
Photos below are how this 5 month old foal moved with a fixated head and neck to the right
from birth until before the his 1st massage with me:
Photos below are how the foal was able to move his head and neck around
for the first time since his birth after I completed his very 1st massage session:
