Training undertaken with:
My horses and I have benefited hugely from complementary therapies and therapists over the years and gradually I was led along the path of wanting to be able to help horses in this way. I knew I wanted to train with Mary Bromiley and as she requires her students to first study human massage, that is what I did. I obtained the I.T.E.C diploma in Holistic Massage for humans and surprised myself by how much I enjoyed the experience. I was thrilled to be accepted onto Mary's equine sports massage course and I loved every moment of the course. Obtaining the I.T.E.C. diploma in Equine Sports Massage Therapy comes a close second to buying my first horse in the 'highlights of my life' stakes. I endeavor to constantly increase my knowledge base and with this in mind attend many relevant courses, thereby increasing my skills and understanding of physical therapy. What a privilege it is to work with these amazing creatures. They have given my life so much meaning and I love being able to give something back. I share my life with my very understanding husband, my horses Harry - a Hanoverian x TB, Liebi – a Dutch Warmblood, 2 Shetland ponies - Hector and Muffin, and 2 dogs, Dusty and Busby. Harry and I embarked on a classical dressage journey a few years back and that is my other passion when not massaging horses. I am currently looking into training with positive reinforcement techniques.
Elaine discovered DEEP OSCILLATION® when Rebecka Blenntoft gave a demonstration to the Equine Sports Massage Association and contacted Julie at PhysioPod to find out more before purchasing. Elaine Mariani rated her impression of dealings with PhysioPod UK Limited as "Very good"
DEEP OSCILLATION® used everyday by Elaine Mariani
In my practice as an equine sports massage therapist, I see a broad range of horses with a variety of problems, from young horses with field injuries, advanced dressage horses with sports injuries or tired muscles/muscles in spasm, event horses, horses recovering from surgery, to elderly horses with oedema, atrophied and tight back muscles, and the full range of problems in between, and I use the Physiopod DEEP OSCILLATION® unit every day on almost every horse I see and I would not be without it.
The Physiopod DEEP OSCILLATION® unit is an amazing piece of kit – the horses love it (and often fall asleep while I am using it) and I love it because it not only helps me to get to the root of the problem more quickly, it also makes it possible for me to help where previously it would have been incredibly painful, and therefore the horse would have been less than compliant.
Muscles in spasm or that have splinted, that have no movement in them, that were previously problematic to treat but are now easily resolved by using the Physiopod DEEP OSCILLATION® unit.
Horses seem to welcome the soothing, very small amount of vibration where they may resent use of my hands and an added bonus is that once they have relaxed from Physiopod DEEP OSCILLATION® use they completely trust me to continue with manual release of tight muscles.
It is without doubt one of the best investments I have made in my business and I highly recommend it to any equine body worker looking for something to make the time spent treating a horse more efficient, make the experience more enjoyable for the horse and to save hands from over use.
As an added bonus, when my back is giving me problems at the end of a heavy week, I use it on myself too – I can vouch for its efficacy!
