A fully body equine massage session takes between 45 and 75 minutes, depending both on the size of the horse and the number of muscle spasms (knots), and overall muscle tension. Rates are charged on a per session basis, not by time, and your horse will be provided with a complete and thorough whole body massage.
Each session includes a brief evaluation at the start, and a summary report afterwards, with any recommendations (e.g. referral for saddle fitting, suggested stretches, etc.). The first session may take longer than average.
Discounts are given for multiple horses receiving massages during the same visit to one location. For convenience to group together with friends, it is not necessary for the horses to have the same owner to receive this discount.
