As a massage therapist, it's important that we stay up to date on the latest techniques and trends in the industry to ensure quality therapy. One way that we accomplish this is through Continued Education Units (CEUs), which is a contributing factor in keeping massage licensing updated. This year, to fulfill the CEU requirement, I took a trip to Oasis School of Animal Massage in Birmingham, Alabama to learn equine massage. While these massages are still being studied for the full scope of benefits to the horses, we have already seen that equine massage is great for pain relief, relaxation, improved circulation, and improved locomotor function for the horses. It turns out that humans and horses aren't as different as you may think when it comes to massage therapy.
