Benefits of Soft Tissue Mobilisation

  • Stimulates fascia to release tissue adhesions.

  • Supports recovery of scar tissue.

  • Improved performance.

  • Stress reduction: relieving tension and helping them to relax. This can be beneficial for both horse and rider.

  • Stimulation of circulation
