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.
