    Horse Message?? Has anyone tried this??

    Well, first off, for those of you that have helped with Kay's past issues, Thank You sooooooooo much.
    We have started looking at other possibilities for Kay's limp because the hoof and knee, don't seem to be the issue. I took my fingers and started at the back of the neck and worked my way down. At the left shoulder I started getting all the signals, tail swishing, head bobbing(like, yes Mom, that's the spot!!) Flinching, moving away, actual side stepping to move away from the pressure.
    So, so far I have started applying a pain relieving gel and rubbing it in deep, Kay will stand with her eyes closed and lean in to the rubbing with her bottom lip relaxed, (this looks actually very funny.) I have started doing this daily and the limp is slowly getting better, YEAH!! She was actually trotting across the field yesterday when she noticed I was at the gate. I've been doing deep tissue message all around the shoulder for a week now. (I think my husband is getting jealous, LOL) Anyway, it's working, and she's getting some relief. I'm also doing some checking around for a vet that will come and assess for chiro work.
    Has anyone heard of message treatment for horses or tried it themself? How successful is this treatment? How lasting are the effects? Or am I just spoiling my big baby?

    I had a Equine Chiropractic out a couple weeks ago for my horses and OMG what a differents, he did tell me sometimes they need a follow up visit, but he also showed me what and how to do what he did, he was very thorough. Well worth the money!!

    My horse has a chiro and a massage therapist that works with magnetic pulses and muscle relaxation. My mother also knows some basic massage techniques. Most horses can benefit from regular chiro work and massages, even if they do not have any serious issues.
