Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork

Posted by on May 15, 2021

The Masterson Method® – Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork™ is a non-invasive “unique, interactive method of equine bodywork that uses the nervous system to relieve tension in the junctions of the body most important for performance” allowing the horse to use its body to the best of its ability.

The Masterson Method®, developed by Jim Masterson in 2005, works WITH the horse to identify changes in body language that show “where the horse is holding tension, when the tension is released and when a performance-limiting issue might be developing.”

Light touch, working under the horse’s brace, along with gentle movement in a relaxed state help the horse to release deep, accumulated pain and tension in muscles and connective tissue along with helping to increase the horse’s range of motion.
