Your horse works hard for you.
Say thank you with a massage.
I earned certifications in equine massage therapy from Equissage Texas and Holistic Animal Studies, totaling over 200 hours of coursework including 60+ hands-on hours. I am also a licensed veterinary technician.
Rest assured that I am covered by liability insurance in the unlikely event of an accident involving a human, horse, or property during a session.
A horse's comfort and relaxation are always high priorities during every session. I go at the horse's pace and constantly adjust my techniques based on their feedback.
What is a session like?
After obtaining a history from the owner or handler, I greet the horse and make sure they are in a place where they can relax and be comfortable.
Next, I perform a light Swedish massage to warm up their muscles, promote relaxation, and let them know what I'm all about. Then I apply light to moderate pressure with my fingertips to several areas of the body to check for pain, tension, spasms or other signs of discomfort.
After taking a few notes about my findings, I give your horse a full body massage with extra focus on relieving any problem areas. I close the session with more relaxing strokes, and I leave a brief report card showing the problem areas for the day.
A day or two after the session, I email a detailed report.
I strive to make the benefits of massage accessible to as many horses as possible, which is why I try to keep my rates affordable.
Initial sessions are $75. Follow-up sessions for repeat clients range from $45-70 depending on the horse's needs. There may be a modest travel fee depending on your location.
I am based in Leander, TX, which is north of Austin.
My regular service area includes Leander, Cedar Park, Liberty Hill, Bertram, Georgetown, Round Rock, Pflugerville, and North Austin.
I can travel outside this area for a travel fee or for no additional charge if three or more horses are scheduled in the same visit.
