The Masterson Method (MM) is a type of bodywork that works with the natural instincts of the horse to release accumulated tension in three key junctions of the body that most affect relaxation, function and performance. As such, this form of bodywork is suitable - and highly recommended - for almost any horse, ridden or non-ridden, of any age and stage of development, and of any breed or discipline.
MM it is a form of bodywork done 'with' the horse rather than 'to' the horse. The horse plays a key role in his own treatment, making him an active participant in the process of releasing tension. Through his responses, he guides the process of non-invasive touch and gentle movements-- safe in knowing that he gets to dictate how much is enough.
One of the wonderful things about the Masterson Method is that a lot of the techniques can be done by any caring horse owner, and Jim Masterson who developed MM, actively encourages horse owners to learn to do so from his book, DVD's, YouTube video clips and through weekend training courses.
