If you are interested in scheduling a bodywork session for your horse,
please call or text 607.348.5666.
Anna combines her 16 years of experience and techniques as a human body worker, her knowledge of the horse, her advanced equine massage therapy education, and a lifetime of real working experience with horses.
The sessions are a balanced combination of results-driven techniques to help ease your horse's muscular tension, and an intuitively-guided session to facilitate healing on a physical, emotional and energetic level.
The equine bodywork Anna offers is a combination of various modalities, tailored for each horse as an individual. No horse is the same, and therefore every session is unique.
Horses are highly sensitive beings. Some do well with deeper work, and some do not prefer it. One individual horse may also require a different type of session each time, which is where Anna's awareness and presence during the session is of utmost importance.
Horses speak a different language than many of us are used to, and are incredibly sensitive. The horse’s responses to touch may be subtle or obvious. Anna uses this observation of the horse’s response in combination with her intuition and "felt sense" to help guide her when performing massage and bodywork on one of her equine clients.
This is why flow instead of force is very important. The areas of restriction, pain and discomfort are reached more accurately and the releases are deeper and more profound when she combines her skill of palpation with her intuition and knowledge of "equine language".
Anna works with all classes of horses, and all disciplines.
Regardless of the horse’s activity level, numerous issues including environment, stress, over-exertion, or even lack of exercise, can impact the bio mechanics of the horse and the functioning of the muscles, causing restrictions and imbalances, putting them at greater risk for injury.
Anna’s work will increase circulation to the affected areas and help release adhesion, which will in turn aid the body in healing. Releases of soft tissue around joints will help increase synovial fluid production and range of motion of the affected joint. Benefits of high quality massage and bodywork are countless and directly affect both mind and body in a profound and positive way.
Your horse’s performance, comfort and overall well-being will improve.
