Masterson Method Equine Bodywork

The Masterson Method® is a type of bodywork that works with the natural instincts and body of the horse to release tension in three key junctions of the body so as to improve comfort, function and performance. It is an integrated multi-modality method of equine massage that is uniquely interactive because a fundamental component lies in identifying and recognising patterns and correlations between the responses of the horse and your touch. This allows you to find and release accumulated tension ​in the key junctions of the body that most affect performance.

This method of bodywork enables the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension. It is something you do with the horse, rather than to the horse. In fact, the horse's co-operation is essential to the success of the method.
