Yes, under the Veterinary Surgeon Act 1966, any Equine Sports Massage Therapist must obtain veterinary consent prior to treatment. Charlotte will do all of this for you prior to your appointment.
The number of sessions required will depend on what is found when treating your horse. Some horses will only need maintenance sessions, which we usually recommend to have every 7-8 weeks at a time depending on the horse, or perhaps sooner if you are regularly competing or doing strenuous work and feel that your horse needs a regular ‘top-up’. However, if there is a lot of pain/soreness found in a session, or the horse is following a rehabilitation program, the horse may benefit from more regular treatment. A plan will always be made at the end of each session.
Please note that equine sports massage is not a substitute for veterinary treatment and if there was ever question for concern which I felt a vet should investigate further I will always work with you and refer you back to your veterinarian.
After every session Charlotte will discuss her findings with you and will begin to create a plan with you going forward. As part of this plan you will be given a selection of stretches, groundwork, pole work and ridden exercises to complete between treatments.

- Aids drainage of the lymphatic system
Can be used pre-event to loosen and warm up muscles prior to an event, or it can be used post-event to relieve muscle tension, aid recovery and return the muscles back to their normal state much quicker than they would without a massage.
