Experienced Equine Veterinary Surgeon with further qualifications in Acupuncture, Sports Massage.

Acupuncture and Massage can benefit a multitude of conditions from those affecting the musculoskeletal system to poor performance.

Acupuncture is a complementary treatment which works very well alongside massage. It can only be performed on animals by a qualified vet, some therapists use sham acupunture or pressure point therapy but this can be less effective.  Acupunture involves the insertion of thin needles into certain trigger points, known as 'ah shi' points.  The needles work on the neurovascular bundle (between muscle bellies)  and allow relaxation of muscles.

Equine acupuncture can be used to treat a number of conditions in horses: including muscular spasm throughout the body, especially neck and spinal pain, chronic arthritic processes such as spavin and ringbone, as well as temporo-mandibular joint tension (jaw pain) which can causing schooling issues. Equine acupuncture can also be used to loosen off tight muscles following moderate to severe physical exertion such as long distance riding, hunting and competing.
