Our human massage services include Swedish, deep tissue, sports massages, cupping and craniosacral therapies. BDP offers infrasound treatment, maintenance and performance massages for our equine clients.

Human Massage

Massage is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, which can be intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. There are many different variations of massage that can be used to alleviate an array of problems. Contact us today to start your massage program.

Equine Massage

Whether your horse is a national circuit competitor or a weekend ride, they can receive many of the same benefits that people can. If your horse is having problems with bucking, head tossing, attitude changes, being "off" for no apparent reason or other issues, massage may be able to help.


Learn how to most correctly ride your horse after a bodywork session or improve communication between you and your horse. Sessions can be offered under saddle, as ground work, or both, depending on each client's needs. While lessons are geared towards the performance arena, all types of riders and horses will benefit from consistent instruction.
