Equine Myofunctional Therapy is a hands-on massage therapy that focuses on the musculotendinous system of the horse. Combined with stretching and other complementary techniques, Equine Myofunctional Therapy works with you to keep your horse balanced, supple and comfortable in both their work and downtime.

How it works

The aim of Equine Myofunctional Therapy is to improve, repair or maintain range of motion, elasticity, circulation, health and the overall physical performance of the horse.
This is achieved through releasing adhesions between the skin, fascia and muscle tissues, as well as improving the circulation of blood and lymph.
Treatment promotes the flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout the tissues and enables the flushing of harmful deposits from around the joints and deep acid deposits from within the muscles (including lactic acid build-up from exercise).

One much happier and noticeably softer all round horse this morning - think we are both pleased with last nights’ treatment. Thanks again, Gizelle. Hopefully by the follow-up session there will be more progress.
