The EQMT 100 and 300 hour series of classes are a full body massage approach specializing in traditional “Swedish” Massage techniques and is not limited to “Sports” massage only. Sports massage is taught in the course (especially Stress Point work) but is not the only emphasis. Langley Equine Studies specializes in rehabilitative care, foundation massage, myo-fascial release, structural integration and neuro-muscular body work. We also introduce our students to adjunct therapies such as micro-current stimulation, sound-wave and light therapy.
The EQMT 100 series of classes are for licensed human massage therapist, who wants to add “equine” massage to their license or certifications.
