Welcome to the Sue Simmons Equine Sports
Massage Therapy Website
Equine Sports Massage Therapy is the application
of professional sports massage techniques applied to the horse.
A thorough understanding of anatomy and the interaction of
bones, joints and muscles are the basis of the proven physical
and mental therapy that is the art of massage.
More than 60% of the horse's body weight
is muscle and muscular problems can be a frustrating source
of a variety of motion problems and training set-backs.
Small muscle injuries can take up to 90
days to become apparent (by a change in attitude, decreased
performance and lameness) by which time they may have caused
more serious injury. Prompt attention to these 'minor' muscle
injuries not only enhances a horse's performance but also
may prevent future problems.
