Key Benefits of Massage:
CIRCULATION: Massage increases circulation to all body parts. All cells of the body absolutely must have oxygen and nutrients brought to them, via the circulation of blood, to generate new cells, produce energy, export toxins and maintain all cellular functions. Poor circulation leads to a decrease in each of these areas. In essence, you now are working with a half-baked horse that will most likely have varied health issues.
MUSCLE PERFORMANCE: Massage physically breaks down the knots and contracted muscle fibers that cannot do their job efficiently. This leads to better muscle quality and more comprehensive and balanced muscle action. Your horse is made up of 700 skeletal muscles and that is 60% of the body mass of the horse! Working a horse with tight, continually contracted muscles is equivalent to operating in a state of resistance. The horse is using much more energy to perform and achieving less than its optimum potential and headed for injury.
MENTAL ACUITY: Massage speaks to the nervous system in such a way that a horse will experience a significant state of relaxation, mental clarity and self healing. A horse functioning in a state of constant mental stress and limited focus will never perform to its full potential.
