Sports Massage Benefits

Equine sports massage offers a laundry list of advantages! From improving athletic performance to increasing the flow of nutrients to a muscle, massage can help each and every horse. This noninvasive therapy can be used for maintaining an athlete or for giving your school horse some much needed relaxation. Besides some R&R, you can expect to see:

  • Enhance muscle vigor
  • Increase range of motion
  • Reduce edema (swelling)
  • Waste elimination
  • Reduce atrophy of inactive muscles
  • Release endorphins
  • Increase circulation
  • Increase flexibility
  • Maintain balance
  • Enhancement of muscle tone

All in all, sports massage has more benefits than not. After a massage or two, you’ll notice an improvement in your horse and their movement.
