|About||Improving performance, communication and relationship with your horse.|
Jim teaches a unique method of bodywork that recognizes and follows the visual responses of the horse to touch, to find and release accumulated muscle and structural stress in key junctions of the horse's body that most affect performance. This method, which creates an interaction in which the horse participates in the process of release, is used by Jim on U.S. and International equine competitors in Grand Prix, FEI Nation's Cup, Pan American and World Cup events.
It is an equally effective technique for any equine discipline. Due to its intuitive, gentle and interactive nature, it is a wonderful way to increase trust, bonding and understanding between human and horse.
No matter how perfect the conformation on a horse, no horse is symmetrical. Tension patterns in the muscles and connective tissues of the joints can form simply from any repetitive work (and of course from any injury or pain). These tension patterns create restrictions in the junctions of the horse’s body which can then restrict movement and affect performance. The horse reaches a point where he can’t completely release this stress or tension on his own, even after the work, injury or pain that caused the pattern is gone. This bodywork searches out those tension patterns and facilitates the release of those restrictions
The Masterson Method® focuses on releasing tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance such as the poll, neck/shoulder/withers junction, and sacro/lumbar junction. Link to www.mastersonmethod.com
