The Masterson Method
The Masterson Method

Jim Masterson teaches a unique method of bodywork that recognizes and then follows the visual responses of the horse to touch, to find and release accumulated muscle and structural stress in key junctions of the horse's body that most affect performance. This Method creates an interaction between the horse and practitioner in which the horse participates in the process of release. It is an equally effective technique for any equine discipline. Due to its intuitive, gentle and interactive nature, it is a wonderful way to increase trust, bonding and understanding between human and horse.

Jim was the Equine Massage Therapist for the United States Endurance Team at the 2006 & 2010 FEI World Equestrian Games, and the 2008 FEI World Endurance Championships in Terrenganu, Malaysia. He uses this Method on U.S. and International equine competitors in FEI Grand Prix, Nation's Cup, Pan American and World Cup show jumping events and on members of the USET Singles Driving horses and Jumping teams.
