Can't afford equine massage, alternatives?

Does anyone know of any 'tools' (like a noduled brush or w/e) that can be used to successfully massage a horse? I can't afford to pay for a massage therapist to come out and I think massage would really benefit my mare. Any tips? I've been looking at the Equistix and The Octassager Multi-Purpose Massage Tool. Opinions? I would also be willing to do it myself.

Hi QuArab! My horses LOVE the rubber curry combs with the really long fingers. It's great because it works loose any dead hair or skin while creating a massaging feeling. They're really affordable and come in different shapes and sizes. I'm not a pro by any means, but it seems to work for my two.

Look into Linda Tellington Jones. She has developed the "TTOUCH", has books, how-to books, about it, easy to learn. There might also be stuff on youtube.
