 A successful equine massage therapist, wanting to start and grow an equine massage practice, must be confident and communicate with equine professionals. A graduate needs to be able to evaluate a horse and effectively treat him / her, so that there’s no doubt in anyone’s mind that your work is valuable and effective. The therapeutic approach taught at Langley Equine studies is “Swedish Massage” techniques, a combination of Myo-fascial Release, Neuro-muscular, and Structural Reintegration and Acupressure modalities.  Functional Anatomy, Anatomy of Equine Movement, Pathophysiology of Pain and Fitness are also taught.
