What therapies are available?


Low Level Laser Treatment


This is a very effective therapy that is used for many different ailments such as muscle relaxation, injury recovery, tendon injuries, ligament injuries and aiding with the lymphatic system.


There are three ways in which massage is used including soft tissue mobilisation followed up with complementary stretches.

Sports Massage, Remedial and Healing Massage & Relaxation Massage are all offered by Emily.

Mag Field

Using the force of the magnetic field increases blood flow through the area improving the body’s natural healing process. This is especially good for soft tissue injuries.


How do I know I need Emily's help?


If your horse needs a session they will usually let you know by:

-  Shortened strides and restricted movement
-  Lack of flexion
-  Poor engagement in working discipline
-  Reluctance to change transitions
-  Low energy, loss of power and quicker to fatigue
-  Stumbling, slipping, tripping
-  Bucking, rearing, napping
-  Adopting undesirable habits and vices
-  Aversion to being tacked up
-  Anxiety, despondence, withdrawal
-  Unusually hitting poles whilst jumping
-  Refusal to jump

These are often shown for both any soreness or a problem with the tack fitting. It is important to book an appointment as soon as any of these signs start to show to prevent other behavioral traits starting usually in compensation. Regular checks will prevent the negative effects of discomfort and muscle stress.

Other aspects of their behavior may also change, the horses appetite can be affected as well as their manner. They may become more aggressive or nervous and become difficult to do day to day jobs with.

About Emily


Emily qualified as an Equine Sports Therapist in 2012. Having always wanted to be an equine therapist after watching a therapist bring one of her own horses back from a serious injury she went to study her degree at Writtle College.


Emily is a fully qualified & insured Equine Sports Therapist.


After being in the industry for a few years Emily became aware that a lot of the issues that she was finding in the horses backs were saddle/tack related spurring Emily to then undertake training with a qualified Master Saddler where she learnt saddle fitting and adjusting through various methods including flocking adjustments.
