Muscles, Massage and Magnetism. Learn how to improve the athletic performance of your horse with the well known Chartered Physiotherapist Mary Bromiley, a leading expert in this field with over 25 years experience.
Mary has been involved with horses all her life and, since proving on her own horses that the principles of human rehabilitation are safe and effective for all species, she now treats horses and dogs as well as humans from her own rehabilitation center at Downs House in Berkshire.
Massage for muscle care is an ancient art and this program is designed to give a better understanding of the reasons for massage. Mary starts by introducing us to the basic anatomy of the horse in order to appreciate the main areas for massage. She then moves on to describe magnetism, a therapy complimentary to massage, and follows this by a look at the basic massage strokes and their effects on the horse.
The application of strokes is clearly shown, first as individual techniques and then as a combination during a condition massage.
The program ends with a demonstration of passive stretches designed to improve the suppleness of the moving parts.
