EQUINE BODYWORK SERVICES
Where Does The Bodywork Occur?
The services provided are mobile, meaning DohGrayMe comes to your home or site.
Please note that bodywork/ massage is not a substitute for veterinary care. Used in combination with regular veterinary care, bodywork/ massage provides invaluable wellness benefits to your animal. DohGrayMe Animal Massage, LLC, does not provide veterinary care and cannot diagnose, prescribe, or give medical advice. Please consult your Veterinarian before seeking bodywork/ massage services for your animal.
$110* - Allow Approximately 75 Minutes for the Session
Please review the "Preparing for the Session" section below to be sure your animal is properly prepared for his/ her session.
The session will focus primarily on the use of Masterson Method® techniques, with traditional sports massage techniques blended in as needed.
Masterson Method® principles and bodywork entail the ability "to recognize and use the responses of the horse to find and release tension. In contrast to traditional massage, it works with the horse’s nervous system and the horse actively participates in the process. It is something you do with the horse, rather than to the horse."
NOTE: Discounts available for more than one horse/ animal scheduled during same visit and location.

Preparing For The Session
Prior to your horse's scheduled bodywork session, please prepare them as follows:
Make sure the horse is reasonably clean and dry for the session.
Have the horse ready, in its stall. Not turned out or being ridden.
Practitioner will not retrieve the horse from turn-out. Additional fees will be applied for additional time spent waiting for the horse to be retrieved from turn-out ($15 per 15 minutes).
If a stall is not available, have a preferred location onsite where the horse would be most comfortable during the massage. Shelter from inclement weather, extreme hot or cold, mud, and similar is preferable. A guardian is welcome to hold the horse or the horse can be tied at a safe location.
Avoid scheduling the session during feeding time and other distracting activities. Distractions can create a challenging environment for a horse to settle, to communicate areas of discomfort, and to release tension.
Area should be quiet and clear of debris or other hazards.
Riding and other activities should be concluded at least 1 hour prior to the scheduled session to provide the horse time to cool down.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns prior to the scheduled session.
