What is Equine Sports Massage?

Equine Sports Massage is the therapeutic application of professional massage techniques applied to the horse through my hands – the manipulation of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function of those tissues and promote relaxation and well being. A thorough understanding of anatomy and the interaction of bones, joints and muscles, are the basis of the proven physical and mental therapy!

What is Red Light Therapy?

Red Light Therapy is the application of light to certain areas on top of the horses skin. These areas have increased electrical conductivity or are acupuncture meridians and we use the Red Light Therapy to produce cellular excitation, increasing energy to cells or stimulating particular physiological results. Red Light Therapy is a natural therapy which works by promoting the body’s own immune responses, its own methods of controlling pain and it’s own healing abilities. Red Light Therapy uses a safe, non-invasive, painless, beam of light of a designated wavelength, in this case 660nm from the Red spectrum. The Red Light provides the photons required to painlessly and safely, penetrate and stimulate tissue.

What is Equi-Tape Kinesiology Taping?

Equine kinesiology tape is a physiotherapy treatment and has various applications. It can be applied between (but not during) competitive elements of many international equine events (it may improve speed recovery & endurance). In recreational riding, it can alleviate discomfort from acute and chronic injuries. Equi-tape is the ONLY kinesiology tape made specifically for equines.

Olivia Burke
"Sophie came out today and worked on my Mum’s horse and my horse Parker. Having watched her work with both horses it was evident she is incredibly knowledgeable and talented! It was great to see Parker respond to everything she did. I, myself, found it rewarding as I saw Parker relax. I also learnt about his muscles and what points of his body were sore, which Sophie helped to release and fix. Definitely recommend!"
