OUR SERVICES

I am open to treating all types of horses; all breeds and sizes from all disciplines, whether they be competition or pleasure horses.

Throughout the treatment if you have any questions or concerns regarding general horse care, nutrition or exercise regimes I can assist in answering these and provide advice to achieve optimum horse health and performance.

“Balance and pain-free movement is
crucial for both horse and rider to
achieve full potential.”

Both EMMETT Therapy and Equine Massage are effective stand alone muscle release techniques. However, during my sessions I am able to integrate both techniques along with stretching regimes.

WHY OUR SERVICES ARE UNIQUE

Through using EMMETT Technique and Equine Massage I can address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions. MEL Equine EMMETT Therapy and Equine Massage can:
  • Straighten tracking
  • Improve collection
  • Increase straightness
  • Improve vertical and lateral flexion of the head and neck
  • Improve lateral flexion through the rib cage
  • Increase overstep
  • Improve power delivery through hindquarters
  • Improve transitions and lead changes
  • Increase endurance
  • Improve quality of life

I will keep a client therapy record, going beyond the average equine body worker. This way I know what was observed in the horse, what techniques were used and suggestions made to the owner at the end of the session. The record is developed at your first appointment to also gain previous history of the horse, owner contact details and horse information etc. I feel by doing this, it may encourage people to schedule follow up/regular treatments to maintain their horses well being and monitor progress and changes after treatments.

BOOK A SESSION IF YOUR HORSE HAS

  • Injuries from sport or accidents
  • Unbalanced gait/stance
  • Lead/harness strain
  • Lower back distress
  • Inhibited movement/muscle restrictions
  • Poor performance / behaviour changes

WHAT IS THE EMMETT TECHNIQUE?

EMMETT therapy uses light touch neuromuscular release to reset muscle memory to improve balance, softness and suppleness in horses.

The EMMETT Technique is an amazingly effective, gentle, safe and easy to apply muscle release therapy. The technique involves the application of light pressure on specific points to affect immediate release in surrounding muscle tissue.

It is used to address pain and discomfort, improve body movement and restrictions, restore a positive emotional / behavioural state and improve the quality of life. Internationally recognised and taught in over 26 countries worldwide is equally effective on both people and animals.

EMMETT therapy is unique in itself. It is non-invasive and very suitable for sensitive horses which are unable to withstand high pressure. I will have completed at the end of this year a Bachelor of Equine Science which has given me opportunities to explore all the bodily functions of the equine body.
