How often should treatment occur?
Massage Therapies 
- Sessions are based on the reason for treatment
- In the case of pain or movement issue it is recommended that weekly treatments occur until the issue has
   reduced significantly - for most horses this is between 1 - 3 sessions. 
- Following this we would recommend a follow up approximately 2 - 4 weeks later.
- Where the issue is found to not be muscular you will be referred to the appropriate practitioner
- In the case of sports massage to enhance performance, we recommend maintenance 4 - 8 weekly
- If acupuncture is the main form of treatment, a minimum of 4 sessions is recommended
- These sessions would intially be weekly and may extend to fortnightly
- In some cases further treatments at fortnightly intervals will be recommended
- In all cases a follow up session 3 - 6 months later will be booked

- Further optimise your horse's performance, book your self in for a treatment with me.
- Fully qualified in human sports therapy, and post graduate remedial therapy techniques.
- For your horse, get yourself treated and stop the transfer of muscle tension between you both.
- Watch as your freedom adds so much more to improve your horse's performance
