Q: How often does my animal need a treatment?

This all depends on the animal’s level of work, it’s conformation, it’s health, the extent of an injury, the footing, it’s tack fit etc. If he has a hard workload a treatment once every 6 weeks is probably in line. The normal working horse or dog should ideally be treated every 3 months as a maintenance programme to assess your training impact as well as to head off issues before they become established.

Q: How soon will I see an improvement?

Sometimes there is an immediate notable improvement, sometimes it takes a few sessions.

Q: How much does it cost?

Prices from £55 per horse, £40 per dog for individual visits, discounts available on group bookings - contact me for more information.

Q: Can my horse have a massage before a competition?

Once the horse is on a regular massage schedule this will be OK. However if this is your horse’s first session he needs to get used to it’s new way of moving and there is a chance he could be slightly sensitive afterwards. Horses adapt movement for a number of reasons. It’s increased range of motion may make you feel slightly out of sync the first time. Not a good idea at a show!

Q: How long do I have to wait until I can ride my horse after a session?

Actually, follow up exercise is a component of sport massage. Healthy sound horses can be ridden after a session.

Q: Where are you based?

I am based in North Leeds and cover the North East of England.
