Description

Would you like to enable your horse to perform and feel better, to overcome old limitations and restrictions and reach its full potential?

In this book, Jim Masterson, Equine Massage Therapist for the 2006 and 2008 and 2010 USET Endurance Teams, and for equine clientele competing in FEI World Cup, Pan American and World Games competitions, teaches a unique method of equine bodywork, in which the practitioner recognizes and follows the responses of the horse to touch to release tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance.

This practical book:

  • has step-by-step instructions, photographs and illustrations
  • is ideally suited to accompany you to the barn, where you will practice the Masterson Method techniques on horses.
  • includes chapters with Tips & Techniques, anatomical explanations and examples from Jim’s practice help deepen your understanding.
  • has a quick reference section will point you to exercises that are specifically suited to your particular discipline, may it be dressage, endurance, eventing or barrel racing, or others in the vast realm of horse sports.

By using these techniques, and knowing the responses to look for, you are able to:

  • achieve a release of accumulated stress in deep-seated key junctions of the horse’s body that affects mobility, comfort, attitude, training and performance
  • restore muscular and structural balance, and natural alignment
  • enable your horse to perform optimally and respond to your training without stiffness and pain
  • achieve new levels of communication and trust with your horse that spill over into other areas of interaction.

The DVD, a companion to the book is a step by step visual guide, with each technique clearly filmed and explained in detail. Jim shows a complete treatment that covers the neck, shoulder and back. He has used this treatment to improve performance on over thousands of horses – and you can too!

By using these techniques, and knowing the responses to look for, you are able to:

  • achieve a release of accumulated stress in deep-seated key junctions of the horse’s body that affects mobility, comfort, attitude, training and performance
  • restore muscular and structural balance, and natural alignment
  • enable your horse to perform optimally and respond to your training without stiffness and pain.

The Masterson Method is an innovative form of bodywork that relaxes the horse’s body and relieves his muscles, connective tissue, and structure of deep stress and pain.  Through the gentle and light manipulation of targeted Release Points; the movement of joints or junctions through a range of motion in a relaxed state; and studied observation of the horse’s responses (his reactions tell you what he is feeling), you’ll open doors to improved health and performance while enhancing communication and your relationship along the way.
