The Equine Sports Massage Therapy
Equissage-New England / New York
The Certification Program will consist of a 5 day
venture into the study of Muscles, Equine Structure, Kinesiology of
the muscles to be worked on, and their relationship to movements of
the horse, as well as actual case studies, and the benefits of
massage. We utilize “The Muscles and Functions” handbook, as well as
provide two additional workbooks to be used while in training. We
use DVDs to illustrate how muscles work, and equine sports massage
Our sessions run from Monday thru Friday of the week
and start at 8AM and finish at 5PM daily. We also offer a
“Weekender” option for those folks unable to attend during the week.
(See the Calendar and
Our sessions are limited to no more than 3 trainees,
which allows for our trainee to instructor ratio to be exceptional
and in favor of the trainee. Our training aides are of exceptional
design helping with the visualization of what lies beneath the skin
as we traverse the anatomy of the horse. Our trainees are better
able to comprehend the methodology being taught and its relationship
to the various muscles and landmarks of the equine anatomy.
As the different groups of muscles and their function
in the Equine body are learned, we then proceed to live animals to
show the sequence and techniques of Sports Massage Therapy. Our
methods of explain, demonstrate, practice and
review is very effective in enabling the trainee to grasp and
retain the sequence and strokes of Equine Sports Massage Therapy. We
have a 96% successful certification rate.
