What is Alisa's Equine Recovery Therapy?
This type of massage applied by Alisa Pitt. It incorporates techniques that focus more comprehensively on the musculoskeletal system than Sports Massage Therapy. Alisa uses all stress and origin points from sports massage; however, Alisa places close attention to acupressure points; as well as, an independent focus on Fascial wellness and proprioception. Lastly, Alisa uses her sequences of dynamic movement sequences (DMS) that release tension and change proprioception to improve balanced movement.

What is Equine Sports Massage Therapy? It is just one part of A.P Equine Therapy!
Sports massage therapy focuses on maximizing efficiency of the musculoskeletal system. This therapy focuses on treating the entire body. A muscle is comprised of 3 main parts the origin, the belly and the insertion. Often times the origin has the most stress and the least circulation. Equine sports massage therapy targets the origin and stress points of the major muscles and treats each point and any additional points in the muscle that pose tightness, soreness or stress. Equine Recovery Therapy wants to move beyond just sports massage and give a comprehensive therapy session taking musculoskeletal bodywork to the next level.
