We know that a body will strive to heal, repair and maintain itself - but the way we keep horses can prevent this. Massage can help redress the balance as part of a holistic approach to management and care. Muscles that are tight or in a contracted state put pressure on surrounding tissues. This causes a decrease in blood circulation, restricted movement, nerve irritation and pain. If not relieved and loosened this tightness can cause more problems and will continue to worsen.

Equine Massage is specifically designed for the horse. It is the manipulation of the soft tissues in a prescribed manner, utilising a variety of specific hand movements. Alex Jakob-Whitworth is a trained, insured and specialist equine masseur and has been involved with horses all her life. She will visit you, assess your horse and your requirements and suggest a programme that will work for you both.
