How it Works

“Harley” – Torn Flexor Tendon

With Harley on stall rest due to his injury, I massaged him regularly to help relieve tension and stiffness caused by lack of movement and restricted space. Flowtrition assisted in Harley making changes within himself as his body needed, increasing blood flow and reducing tension. As a result, Harley healed much faster than the vet or anyone expected.


The Process

A massage or Flowtrition session starts with meeting the horse and evaluating points of stress. I like to discuss with the owner about the horses background and any medical conditions or any issues encountered when working with the horse. I do a complete body assessment – working from the poll, down the neck, shoulder, back, sacrum, rump, tail and legs. Each horse is different and requires different touch. It is a process of listening to the horse and being aware of their needs.

 

I’m often asked if horses will need repeat sessions to maintain the positive effects of massage therapy.  The answer is, it depends on the horse and what is the desired outcome. Some older horses benefit from weekly massages. Likewise, horses in recovery or stall rest may also find it beneficial to have additional sessions. Each horse is different and requires different assessments, and responds differently to therapy.   But all horses benefit from flowtrition and massage.
