A Bit About Me and my Horse(s)
I have been working with horses for most of my life. I am an equine massage therapist and have been practicing for 10 years now, having graduated from a 2 year intensive equine massage therapy diploma program. I also acheived an Honors degree in Biology. I recently relocated to Kitchener and have relaunch my business (McMaster Massage) in this region.
Do you have any pets?

The Importance of Stretching Your Horse

We spend hours and hours in training our horses to develop them physically or to perfect a certain maneuver, but how many of us take 5-10 minutes after the cool down to stretch out our horse's muscles? My guess is not enough!

Stretching is very important for maintaining maximum mobility and suppleness in muscles. When your horse's muscles…

Maintenance Massage for Your Horse

Most people will think of calling a massage therapist when their horse has a major problem. While massage is a wonderful treatment for many strains and injuries, what about the times in between when the horse appears fine? Your horse doesn't need to have an obvious existing problem in order to benefit from massage. In fact, the most effective use of…

I would love to build up to Full time massage... but by the looks of the industry in my area, I'd have to move out of state (which I'm not opposed too!). I'm working retail at TSC (do you have those?) so I'm hoping to make a few contacts that way. I'm starting school in March to become a Vet Tech. I'm hoping to combine my massage knowledge with the vet tech stuff and i'm *hoping* to get on with a large animal vet. *crosses fingers*

I'm enjoying it very much when I do get the chance to massage! The economy has hit my area very hard due to the drought and exorbitant hay prices that the horse industry got hit with for the last 2 years :( How are things up Kitchener way?

Hi Sharon, I had a better year this year. I am at the point that I need to get a different job that allows me to spend more time on my massage business. The aromatherapy is interesting and I am adding it to my massage a little. It is mostly for my dogs right now.

Hi there,
Thanks for your comment. Would love to keep in touch, I'm very intruiged with any for of natural healing, massage etc. And am learning every day. I was wondering, have you heard of Micro current treatment?? I have seen and learned about that from closeby, and I'm absolutely amazed with the results that I have seen. I was just curious if you have heard of it, or if you use it yourself in your treatments.

Well, I just wanted to say hello,

Bye for now,

Hi there, I love your profile! I find all of this kind of stuff very very interesting, and I think more people should add this in their daily routine when they handle their horses. Anyway, I just wanted to drop that in! Thanks for your information, Have a great day!

Hi Sharon,
Yes the session did deal more with "creating yourself" in terms of discovering how we all have individual strengths that open doors of business opportunity. And, of course, the group discussion hopefully led people to
1. Realize how painless networking can be. 2. Help people think laterally and creatively about how they can build their businesses.

Now that you are a Barnmice member, play with ways to network on line. As a little exercise, I would suggest that you find ways to participate in the community, adding your voice as an equine massage therapist. You can comment on members' photos that you like, join the OEF and other groups that interest you, add a blog post or comment on others, add some photos and videos, start discussions and participate in discussions that are already underway. In other words, put yourself out there and let people get to know you!

Hi Sharon,
Yes, either we ran short of time or I ran long on talking!! I did want to get into how to use the Internet as a networking tool, parallel to your efforts in the bricks and mortar world. I also wanted to talk about simple ways to create and support your own individual brand, but I think I would have needed a whole extra hour for that!
