Massage is one of the oldest forms of therapy known. It is an essential practice for releasing muscle tension, imbalance, and pain. Regular massage can improve circulation to release cellular toxins and wastes that have accumulated during work, smooth out and relieve gait issues due to muscular causes, free energy trapped within tight and overworked tissues, help to prevent injuries that can be caused by conflicting stresses from imbalanced muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and provide an opportunity for you and your horse to develop a healthy relationship.
When your horse views you as a source of relaxation rather than stress your goals become his or her goals as well. A truly functional and caring team is built from the trust that develops and YOU CAN DO IT!
The techniques are simple and easy to learn. This course will give you the tools you need to build rapport and trust with your horse through relaxation and relief of muscular pain, but we won’t stop there. In the Equine Massage for Horseowners course you will not only learn the massage techniques that release tension and negative energy, you will also learn the WHY of it.
In the Equine Massage for Horse Owners Bundle course is the actual Anatomy & Physiology course containing more than six hours of lecture, and the Biomechanics course with over four hours of information that our students pursuing certification take. This is an added bonus to you because we believe that it is important to understand more than just HOW to do something, you should understand WHY you do something. When you understand WHY you’re doing the techniques then you can optimize and customize the massage therapies we’ll teach you in this course to address specific issues for YOUR HORSE.
You’ll learn the Anatomy & Physiology of your horse so you can understand exactly what each muscle, tendon, bone, and ligament does in movement and how they react to each other. This knowledge is PRICELESS! Imagine being able to:
- Systematically, analyze and scrutinize gait imbalances and poor performance issues before they become BIG problems.
- Actually feel the areas where your horse hurts, the areas that are making it really hard for him to give you that lead change or lateral movement. He wants to do it for you but it hurts.
- Discover your horse’s unique problem areas and determine exercises or routines to alleviate them.
- Be proactive with your horse’s health and wellbeing.
- Experience peak performance most of the time instead of wondering why they are “just not into working.”
YES, you can actually feel areas that could become future issues and deal with them before they are injuries. Most horses have areas and muscles that are weak and imbalanced from years of overcompensating for previous injuries or soreness. The longer they move with those imbalances the worse they become. You and I are the same way. Don’t you have an injury that made you overuse the rest of your body until it healed? The microtrauma and repetitive motion injuries that you really aren’t aware of are there and if you think about it you no longer move the same way you did before you got hurt.
So now the imbalanced muscles cause other muscles to take over some of the load and they become fatigued and sore creating the need for other structures to jump in to help and a cascade of imbalance progresses until one day the body says… STOP!
It takes a concentrated effort to overcome the “little” habits of movement that were developed during your recovery OR it takes an INTERVENTION.
You can intervene in your horse’s recovery by knowing how his or her body works and what to do with the day to day workout fatigue that is inevitable.
PLUS you’ll know what your veterinarian is talking about. Vets have their own language. They throw around terms like: medial, lateral, dorsal, caudal, sublingual… yeah, I know, they’re hard to even pronounce. But Sarah makes it easy in her lectures to hear how the words are pronounced and to understand what they mean because she doesn’t use them like they are foreign words. She uses them the way that we just talk to each other, every day. By the end of the course those words won’t seem so strange, they’ll be comfortable and normal. Your vet will thank you for being specific in describing and relating problems your horse may have that are beyond the scope of massage to cure, and you will understand what the vet means when he prescribes treatments to alleviate your horse’s ailments.
The Anatomy portion of the Equine Massage for Horse Owners Bundle includes:
- Vocabulary and terminology, directional terms.
- The skeletal system
- The muscular system
- Fascia, tendons, and ligaments.
- The nervous system
- The lymphatic system
The anatomy portion of the course alone is more than six hours of lecture that our certification program students need to master before they can test. You get it as an added bonus just to impress your family, friends, and veterinarian… plus your horse. But it really is valuable material for the reasons I already mentioned before. Knowing anatomy will give you an understanding of how things work together and why your horse is not performing at his best.
But WAIT! There’s more!
I always hate it when they do that, but it’s true. This bundle also has access to four hours of lectures on Biomechanics to really solidify your knowledge of how your horse works.
You’ll see things that you didn’t before when you watch your horse move. Small changes in a gait can mean bigger problems in the shoulder or the neck. It’s not always a problem with the legs!
Horses are great at masking injuries… unless, they are the drama queen in the barn.
Anyway, back to the topic. Horses have evolved so that predators don’t notice they are hurting. Predators attack the weak and injured. They like easy kills. Why would they want to chase a healthy horse for dinner when they could catch a lame one with less effort? Horses know this so they try very hard not to look lame or injured. They’ll work in pain without complaint until they really are lame.
It’s our job as their caretakers to be able to see when they are hurting even if they don’t want you to know it. We owe them that because they give so much to us already. Caring for your horse is what truly defines horsemanship.
The Biomechanics course will open your eyes to seeing things like: why your horse limps on its front leg when the vet finds an injury in a hind leg. Your horse has a chain of muscles running from their nose to their tails and they all interact like ropes and pulleys. Sometimes a problem in the neck can show up in the hindquarters. Weird, right?
Horses and humans are wired funny. But it isn’t rocket science. It’s just a matter of learning how it’s put together and remembering a few key factors, then it makes sense.
