Offering unparalleled comprehensive sessions for humans and equines.  Take charge of you and your horse’s muscular health today.

THE SCIENCE

The central nervous system is divided into the parasympathetic (PNS) and sympathetic (SNS) nervous systems.  The SNS is responsible for “fight or flight,” preparing the body for physical activity.  The PNS relaxes the body and is responsible for repairing the body.  Bodywork activates the PNS. Therefore, by providing this service, you help your horse’s body repair itself.

While the body is in a state of repair, we address adhesions within the muscle tissue, fascia restrictions, and tensional/compensation patterns.  The result is often a dramatic difference in reactivity to palpation and improved posture in the body.  

THE BENEFITS

Equine athletes develop tension patterns in their muscles that lead to compensation in the body.  Providing regular bodywork allows patterns to be addressed before they manifest into larger problems such as lameness. 

Bodywork can increase your horse’s flexibility, increase range of motion, prevent injury, and, most importantly, decrease pain! You will see improvement in posture and softening of rigid, stiff points in the body.  Our goal at Bottom Line Equine is to always leave the horse better than we found them!

PASSIVE STRETCHING

Passive stretching works within your horse’s natural range of motion to help promote flexibility and muscular release.

When done regularly, you will see an increase in their natural range of motion.

This is a complementary service provided with all bodywork.

Bodywork can increase your horse’s flexibility, increase range of motion, prevent injury, and, most importantly, decrease pain!

The Mission ...

To bring out your horse's Top Potential!
Neuro-muscular Therapy

Neuro-muscular therapy (NMT) is the practice of applying direct pressure to specific points within a muscle. NMT can be applied to the nerve apparatus of a muscle to release tension and pain. It can also be applied to "knots" or striation in a muscle. I use this method often to get horses out of pain fast!

Happy Horse, Healthy Body

Not only is bodywork wonderful for your horse's muscles, they love it. Most horses go into a very relaxed state. They will blink slowly, yawn, lick and chew, and drop their head. Your horse will thank you for just how good they feel!

Know Your Horse

Comprehensive sessions provide a detailed and documented evaluation of your horse's body. All points are covered, from the poll to hind heel bulbs. You'll find out exactly where your horse needs help.
