Your Horse in Connected Balance - massage, cranial sacral - Aberdeen, NC
Debra Parker, ESMT and CCST - Equine Massage, Craniosacral and Energy Work (Usui Reiki I)
Here are a few of the common conditions that could greatly be improved by these therapies:
“Off” for no apparent reason
Shoulder or hip lameness
Stiffness and resistance
Short, choppy strides
Loss of performance ability
Preparation for the session: I incorporate some energy work into the massage as a way of opening the animal to the treatment. Sessions last approximately one hour (depends on horse).
Please have your horse groomed (preferably bathed recently) prior to the session and arrange for a quiet but secure place (usually their stall if it’s large enough). We will meet first and review your horse’s history. I will perform a one minute quick evaluation and give you an opportunity to ask questions prior to the start of the treatment. Post treatment, I will give my findings and recommendations and again allow any questions you may have at that time. Normally horses respond right away.
Post Session: Walk your horse for approximately 5 minutes (I usually video tape before and after for you). Give immediate and ready access to fresh water. You may ride or exercise your horse (assuming the horse is sound) any time after the session.
Pricing: $85 for initial treatment session (may be reduced to $50 per session for purchase of blocks of or weekly sessions).
(cash, check, credit card or PayPal)
Locations: Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen, NOTE: outside of Moore County, we will discuss a travel fee.
