Why Reiki Massage for my horse?
The horse has served the human for centuries. Asking very little while furthering our quality of life. I don't believe that a horse is just a possession or a tool for business or sport. The horse's real gift is its spirit. There are a myriad of gifts and lessons that the horse bestows upon those of us willing to listen. Reiki is, in my experience, the key to reaching a deeper, more meaningful, understanding of both the horse's spirit and our own human spirt.
For a number of reasons, horses are susceptible to muscle strains and stress. Play in the paddock with other horses, a slip on some bad footing, work-outs in arena, compensating the rider in subtle ways, even the bit and reins can stress a horse’s neck and body. There are so many opportunities for our horses to get muscle strain. Even old injuries can create scar tissue which needs to be worked out to allow for easier, smoother, more relaxed movement. A more relaxed horse physically, is a more relaxed horse mentally. Which one would you rather ride?
For the many reasons humans benefit from massage, so too can a horse.
