Each massage and bodywork session is customized to the horse's individual needs. Massage techniques will vary depending on the unique needs of the horse, though they are likely to involve applying firm pressure to muscles and other underlying soft tissues such as the fascia or connective tissue surrounding muscles. The muscles are typically warmed up prior to deeper work; strokes used might include tapotement, effleurage, compression, petrissage, direct pressure, friction, transverse friction, origin and insertion, and fascial lines. Basic massage techniques are at the foundation of most equine massages, whether the goal is to spoil a pampered show horse, treat a loyal trail partner, reward a trusted schoolie, or, in consultation with a veterinarian, support the management of a serious underlying medical problem.
