Preparation for the session:  I incorporate some energy work into the massage as a way of opening the animal to the treatment.  Sessions last approximately one hour. 

Please have your horse groomed (preferably bathed recently) prior to the session and arrange for a quiet but secure place (usually their stall if it’s large enough). We will meet first and review your horse’s history.  I will perform a one minute quick evaluation and give you an opportunity to ask questions prior to the start of the treatment.  During the treatment I am focused on the horse and therefore cannot carry a conversation until post treatment.  Post treatment, I will give my findings and recommendations and again allow any questions you may have at that time.  Normally horses respond right away. 

Post Session:  Walk your horse for approximately 5 minutes (I usually video tape before and after for you).  Give immediate and ready access to fresh water.  You may ride or exercise your horse (assuming the horse is sound) any time after the session.

Massage or Energy work treatments do NOT diagnose or treat disease.  If I should discover something during the session, I will recommend you contact your veterinarian.
