Certified Practitioner of The Masterson Method ® Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork ®

What is Bodywork?

What is Bodywork?

Bodywork is a type of equine massage that involves hands-on, interactive techniques that the practitioner does with the horse, rather than to the horse.  

Bodywork helps the horse move more freely, influences positive behaviors, and improves an overall sense of well-being.  

As a Masterson Method® Certified Practitioner, Lori uses touch to locate and release accumulated tension in key junctions that negatively affect performance and wellness. 

Bodywork is beneficial for healthy performance and competitive equestrian disciplines, pleasure riding, and pasture pets.  It is not a substitute for veterinarian care.  Your veterinarian should be consulted if you are not confident your horse is healthy enough for massage or bodywork therapies.  

For horses needing extra TLC, Lori will work with your veterinarian or chiropractor to define a plan that is most appropriate for your horse's well-being. 

Goals of Each Bodywork Session

  • Alleviate built-up tension
  • Reduce soreness
  • Increase range of motion
  • Incremental improvement each session
  • A more relaxed state both physically and emotionally
  • Enhance agility, suppleness, and balance
  • Prepare your horse for performance - whether that is competition or trails
