The Merishia Massage Course was produced by experienced animal musculoskeletal
therapists/ lecturers, originally with focus on Swedish and sports massage
elements. It has developed to incorporate a number of gentle, yet very
effective combinations of the techniques, influenced through biomechanics and
other soft tissue approaches.
Our therapists only use long recognised and non-invasive massage techniques designed to work naturally with the horse's own body to encourage healing and to promote good health and enhance performance.
A massage can be beneficial before or after competition or hard work, because it can help to reduce the chances of injury beforehand and can help to speed up the healing process if injury has occurred by increasing muscle tone, strength and circulation.
