Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique involving gentle, sustained pressure applied to the myofascial connective tissue to release fascial restrictions.
Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures can create restrictions in the fascia. Releasing these and returning the "slackness" to the connective tissue helps to eliminate pain, restore motion, and allows the collagen fibres of the body to re-align in a pattern that allows maximum strength and function.
Energy or life force should flow smoothly through the body. When the flow is interrupted, blocked, stagnated or weakened, the body becomes vulnerable to disease and injury.
Energy healing uses healing techniques, visualisations and intention to look beyond the physical to manipulate the subtle energy systems where the cause of the disease can be located. Majestic Horse incorporates several different energy medicine methods together to help dissolve and clear any blockages, and rebalance the whole system, so that the horse’s inherent ability to heal itself is optimised.
Red light therapy is a very efficient, safe, and non-invasive way of promoting healing and reducing pain and inflammation. It is similar to acupuncture but without the needles. The red light torch (which is a specific wavelength of red light) is applied to areas of concern such as muscle soreness or wounds, or to acupoints on the horse’s body to promote the body’s immune responses and healing abilities, and to produce a therapeutic effect.
Ideal for a number of conditions such as soft tissue injuries; inflammatory conditions; open wounds; swelling; scarring; laminitis; joint pain and arthritis; colic, ulcers and gastro-intestinal issues; hormonal issues; anxiety; viral infections; endocrine issues; and muscle soreness.
Pre-Event Sports Massage is performed prior to competition or intense work to prepare the body for athletic activity. The techniques employed warm up the muscles (improving stretch and recoil), stimulate the circulatory system, release endorphins, relieve any tightness in the body, and loosen joints.
Doing a pre-event massage reduces the chance of injury during competition and helps with the horse’s endurance. Massage treatment includes stretching.
Performed after a competition or workout to flush toxins, reduce the build-up of lactic acid, prevent stiffness and soreness, and return muscle tone to a relaxed state. Includes passive stretching.
The post event massage is best done when the horse has settled down a bit following the event; when the heart rate, temperature and respiratory rate have returned to normal levels; and prior to being loaded onto a float for the journey home.
