Evaluation of the Horse
Bill begins each session with the evaluation of the horse.  Using the experience he has gained over his career along with case histories, Bill focuses on the muscular and accupoints of the horse.  From that evaluation, Bill creates a “road map” of the issues and decides what modalities and techniques will be applied, always paying close attention to the horse’s language.  After the session the horse is re-evaluated for any remanding issues. Follow-up appointments are made based on the evaluation.

Equine Sports Massage Therapy/Equine Accupressure (ESM)
This therapeutic, non-invasive application of professional sports massage techniques was developed and is used by human athletes.  This is a very important part of prevention therapy in horses and speeds recovery from certain injuries.  It reduces stress and nervousness in a tired horse and promotes strength and flexibility.  Properly applied, this therapy ultimately increases the performance of the horse which, in turn, brings winning results.

Equine Craniosacral Therapy (ECST)
Simply put, ESCT is an energy therapy modality which methodically and directly addresses muscular tension, spasms and scar tissue.  It relies upon a light touch and focuses upon the central nervous system in an effort to detect and correct restrictions and imbalances throughout the body.  It has proven to eliminate the negative effects of stress, strengthen resistance to disease and enhance overall health.
