Equine Myofunctional Therapy
EMT is a whole body massage. It is only
recently that the western world has come
to understand the benefits of hands on
therapies for horses. Sports massage is a well
recognised therapy for humans.
Muscles constantly move in order to keep
the horse in a state of equilibrium, the
constant play of muscles working together
can create stresses and strains. Any level
of horse can benefit - whether a competition
or leisure horse.
Equine Myofunctional Therapy has
considerable benefits, including:
• Improve circulation
• Relax tight muscles
• Aid digestion
• Stimulate the lymphatic system
• Eliminate lactic acid build up.
Using their hands members of the EMTA use techniques for which they have had
professional training, based on a thorough grounding in anatomy and physiology.
