Captured Spirit Ranch
Equine Massage and Bodywork
Have you ever suspected that your equine partner was suffering from muscle soreness or tightness, but weren't sure how to make them feel better? That is what prompted Robin to attend a training program in Equine Massage with Jim Masterson. The training consisted of 7 consecutive days, 7 to 8 hours per day with both classroom and hands on time, with many hours of reading and watching DVDs each evening. It was a challenging course, but Robin chose this program because it was very much geared to "reading" the horse and then applying massage techniques to work specifically on whatever the horse determined to be the problem areas of their bodies.
Horses are such willing partners, but being the great athletes they are they sometimes need either specific muscle work or just a relaxation and tension relieving massage to keep them performing at their optimal level. We offer both options, and can schedule an assessment session to locate possible problem areas for your horse, or a series of sessions to keep your horse physically relaxed and working at his best.
Captured Spirit Equine Services now offers Equine Massage and Bodywork services using this outstanding method. Please contact Robin for more information or to set up an appointment. Your horse will thank you for it!
Prices: $75 per session, plus a 50 cent charge per mile for clients out of the area. Each session will take 60 to 90 minutes. The first session includes a complete physical evaluation of the horse to help determine if Equine Massage is the right route for that particular animal. Masterson Method Equine Massage is not a substitute for veterinary services, so any animal in need of medical attention will be referred back to the client for appropriate treatment by their vet.
