What kind of oil do you use? For all my massage services for people I use a hypoallergenic, unscented massage lotion. It absorbs into the skin well is not greasy like traditional oils.
Does it hurt?
Pain in the muscles can be caused by adhesions which are when the
muscles glue themselves together instead of being able to move
freely. Breaking these spots up to free the muscle can cause some
discomfort.I keep in contact with you and monitor any pain and work
within acceptable individual limits. I strive to use the least amount of
pressure necessary to be effective.
Do I have to do more than one treatment to get pain relief? This depends on the nature of your condition. Many new or mild aches and pains can be resolved in 1-2 sessions.
If you have an active pain syndrome or more chronic type pain, more treatments will generally be required upfront.
I tell my clients to plan on 2-4 sessions up front
spaced no more than 1.5 weeks apart if a client is experiencing active, ongoing pain. Sessions after that time will be scheduled as needed.
How often should I receive treatments?
See above for active pain. If you are in need of a relaxation only
massage you can do those whenever you please, but once monthly is a good guideline.
Do I have to get naked under the sheet? No. You can undress to your personal comfort level. Many people do undress completely. You can do what is comfortable for you knowing that you will be fully covered and draped with a sheet and blanket. Only the area I am working will be exposed in a a professional manner for treatment.

Did you know that a horse and rider often mirror each other in their body? For every benefit that your horse gains, your muscles gain too. Treating the partnership of both horse and rider with my massage services will keep you both in top condition.
Bodywork is an effective treatment for muscle pain, soreness and common
conditions such as low back pain, upper back issues, arm and shoulder pain, and tightness in the legs that riders can experience.

How long does a horse session last? Horse massages last anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Usually the first appointment is more towards the 1.5 hours.
Do I have to be there for the massage? During the first session the owner/trainer will hold the horse as well as give me information on his background and point out any issues. On subsequent sessions after the horse’s response to massage has been observed he can remain in a stall for the duration of the massage.
Can I ride my horse after he receives bodywork? It is recommended especially for a first time massage that you give your horse 2-3 days off with as much turn out as possible. This allows your horse to get used to the changes in his body.
What if I have a show or competition coming up? If this is your horse’s first massage, it will need to be scheduled at least a week and a half before an upcoming event. If he has had massages before or is on a regular schedule of receiving treatment, having a massage session one week prior to competition is still ideal.
Are ointments used? For horse treaments no ointment or oils are used. Just my hands.
Note: Equine Sports Massage is NOT a substitute for qualified veterinary care. All horses must be diagnosed and/or cleared by their vet prior to receiving a massage session.
