Equine Sports Massage

Background

Various palpation and massage techniques are used to increase the circulation, relieve muscle spasm and tension, whilst enhancing muscle tone.

The Equine Sports Massage Association

This association is the product of Mary Bromiley and her foresight to see the many benefits of Equine Massage. Students of Mary Bromiley (a practising chartered physiotherapist for over 35 years) formed the Equine Sports Massage Association (ESMA). Mary was the official physiotherapist for both horse and rider at the Olympics and World Championships for the New Zealand Three Day Event Team.
