Benefits Of Equine Massage
Promotes healing by increasing the flow of nutrients to the muscles and carrying away excessive fluids and toxins. Reduces inflammation and swelling in joints, thereby alleviating pain, by improving circulation. Creates a positive effect on the contractual and release process of the muscles. When tension is released, muscle relax. Assists in balancing the body by treating the body as a whole rather than each individual part. Stimulates circulation by “defrosting frozen muscles” thereby releasing endorphins- natural pain killers. Improved circulation also increases the excretion of toxins through the skin.
