Equine Sports Massage Therapy
Torey Jeanes believes that a horse and rider should treat their muscular system the same way pro-athletes treat theirs. The use of sport massage therapy can improve range of motion, flexibility, and give peace of mind in order to train and perform successfully.

What is . . .
EQUINE SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY?
Equine Sports Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues on the body in order to achieve specific goals of drainage, relaxation, or stimulation, and of releasing muscle-related problems such as trigger points and stress points. It contributes to the overall economy of the body and to its ability to function efficiently. Massage greatly improves circulation, thereby promoting a good supply of nutrients to the muscle groups. Massage therapy greatly contributes to relaxing the nervous system from stress, helping the psycho physiologic self-regulation factors between body and mind. Massage therapy has been known to speed up recovery from injury.
Sports massage differs from other forms of massage in that it focuses on the course of muscle injury . . . with the intent of not just relieving muscular pain, but assisting as well in the PREVENTION of (future) injuries to those muscles.

BENEFITS OF EQUINE SPORTS MASSAGE THERAPY:
• Improves circulation
and as a result, promotes more rapid healing of injuries
A PRE-EVENT SPORTS MASSAGE
Loosens, warms, and readies the muscles for an event
A POST-EVENT SPORTS MASSAGE
Relieves muscle pain and stiffness by returning the muscles to a normal state. After vigorous exercise, dehydration takes place in the horse and, with the loss of fluids, it is harder for the horse to cool down.
An EQUINE SPORTS MASSAGE helps to keep the entire body in better physical condition!
