Holistic Care for Horses
Epiony Heat Pad Therapy Sessions
I am a stockist of the Epiony Heat Pad and they are great for helping to relax tired and aching muscles.
Sometimes, manual massage therapy alone cannot reach the deeper muscles and so by applying heat, the superficial and deeper muscles can be warmed up, relaxed and become more pliable to movement.
It can be placed anywhere on the body, from relieving the poll area, back or even helping with stiff legs.
If needed, I will use the Heat Pad during a treatment but you can also book a Heat Pad Therapy session for 30 mins.
If you are interested in purchasing a Heat Pad yourself, please let me know and I can arrange this on your behalf.
£25 per 30min session

Medical Taping Concept - Vetkin
In October 2019, I trained in Medical Taping Concept which is a branch of Kinesiology Taping using elasticated tape to enhance the body's musculoskeletal structure.
I use Vetkin Tape which has a pre-stretch in it. It can be used as a non-medicated pain relief which works on a fascia level of the skin and it can also be great for proprioception purposes.
Charges for this are dependant on the amount of tape used and advice can be given at the time.
Other benefits include..
* Aids Joint stabilisation
* Aids muscle function
* Aids blood and lymph circulation
Price varies depeding on the condition to be treated. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
Equilibrium Products Magnetic Hock Chaps
Magnetic Therapy is proving increasingly popular to aid with circulation, stiffness and flexibility. These chaps are placed on the hind legs and can be worn all night or all day (depending on your turnout routine) in the stable and are very comfortable. The Magnetic strips can be placed where stiffness is felt the most, whether this is the fetlocks or the hocks.
The chaps are available to hire from me for a daily rate and are especially useful if you have been considering using magnetic therapy to help your horse - Try before you Buy.
Daily Hire - £15.
Recommended hire period - 7 days
TENS & NMES Therapy
Electrical Stimulation Therapy has many benefits and when combined with a massage treatment has proven to get results. There is a difference between TENS and NMES
TENS - this is purely for pain relief as it blocks the pain signals to the brain and has a relaxing effect.
NMES - this is Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation and can be used to help increase muscle tone and blood flow. I can also use it to help activate and recruit a group of muscles which may be dormant. Muscles lose tone and can atrophy quickly when not used, so this modality is great for 'kick-starting' them again.
Included within Physiotherapy plan or applied separately. Please contact me for more information on this
