Locating the surface anatomy
Muscles addressed during the session
Common areas of stress
Encouraging communication and interaction in sessions
Differentiating between normal and pain responses
Massage and body work techniques
Correct and effective body mechanics
Improving your eye for gait & conformation assessment

Horse owners & riders will benefit not only by learning the techniques, but how to utilise bodywork as a regular assessment of their horse's condition.
