Born and raised in Southern Arizona, began studying massage therapy in 2001, began riding career in 1995; riding resume consists of hunter, jumper, Benson Pony Express Rider, competitive trail riding, endurance riding, Tai Chi on Horseback, dressage and eventing.

About my Technique: Over the last 20 plus years I have developed a massage flow that incorporates modalities such as deep tissue, trigger point, myofascial, neuromuscular and energetic work.  My technique always has the focus on healing and never harming, deep healing should never be painful, uncomfortable yes but not painful. When a horse or human tenses against pressure or moves away from it, it engages the pain spasm cycle, this cycle creates inflammation, stress, pain, tension and sometimes damage to the tissues. My technique will appear subtle but I am listening to the horse or human and if their body resists, we come out of it and approach again from a direction or pressure that their body is accepting of in that moment.  The health of your horse and yourself is my priority.

RevitaVet Session

$25

Light therapy has been shown in over 40 years of independent research worldwide to deliver powerful therapeutic benefits to living tissues and organisms. Both visible red and infrared light have been shown to affect at least 24 different positive changes at a cellular level.
Light radiation must be absorbed to produce a biological response. All biological systems have a unique absorption spectrum that determines which wavelengths of radiation will be absorbed to produce a given therapeutic effect. The visible red and infrared portions of the spectrum have been shown to be highly absorbent and produce unique therapeutic effects in living tissues.

Infrared therapy is not new to the veterinarian field. In fact, it has been used in the equine market for more than 20 years.

ArcEquine Microcurrent

$25

ArcEquine Microcurrent Therapy System

Help your horse heal more quickly with this compact microcurrent therapy system, designed to increase ATP production which speeds healing by up to 50%.

ArcEquine is a compact, portable, battery operated device, which delivers drug free, non-invasive Microcurrent Therapy
When an injury or disease occurs, it decreases the rate of ATP production. There is less energy to transport the nutrients and the flow slows dramatically. The cells do not have enough energy to kick-start the repair process
By introducing microcurrent into the body, ATP production has been found to increase by up to 500%, kick starting and accelerating the body’s own recovery, allowing for the reduction of pain and inflammation, and healing to start earlier
ArcEquine mimics the body’s natural electrical currents and reintroduces them from an external source
This kick-starts and accelerates many processes involved with correct cellular functioning, resulting in faster healing and promoting optimal health
