Webinar: Equine Sports Massage

Jo-Ann Wilson

Working with animals can be a wonderful and rewarding addition to any massage practice. The theory and technique of the Wilson Meagher method of sports massage, equine biomechanics of motion, and strategies to achieve complete freedom and range of motion will be presented. Muscles and their functions will be reviewed as a foundation to recognize muscle tightness, why tightness develops, how to prevent it, and how tightness is reflected in range-of-motion restrictions that contribute to diminished performance. Examples may include diminished endurance, shortened stride, leaning on one rein, hanging a leg while jumping, and drifting to one side.
