"I am amazed at how quickly you reached her, how quickly she loved you. I haven't reached that level of trust with her. You do it by feel which is very rare. You have a natural gift."

"Honestly the difference is incredible! I didn't actually get a chance to work her yesterday, but I rode her today and omg she was so soft, light, and supple right from the get go. So cool!"

"@cristinas_equine__massage not only taught me all of this 👆🏻 but gave me concrete exercises to help with strengthening thoracic sling muscles and as you can tell, I’ve been doing them! When she sent me the first snap from April I was so excited to take a progress photo because I knew right away there had been a huge change 🤩

Body work has been a literal lifeline for Opi and I riding the rehab rollercoaster this year and I personally think it should be a part of every horses routine 🧡"

Help us say the biggest thank you to @cristinas_equine__massage by booking your horse in for a session! I’m telling you… game changer 🙌🏻

"Mabel felt amazing yesterday, she recently had a treatment from @cristinas_equine__massage and I’m super pleased with the results! She felt super elastic and supple 🥰"

"Thanks so much for a great session last night. The horses look like they're feeling great :)  Also I figured I'd mention how awesome River felt since his treatment! Had the vet look at him and he also mentioned that upper neck so I'll be getting chiropractor out and X-rays done! His treatments really make a difference!"

"Anyone who knows me knows I have always been a huge proponent of bodywork, especially when it comes to my horse. Chiro and massage have made a huge difference in Opi from the time I got him and have been a cornerstone in his rehab as well.

I was looking for someone in Ottawa who did more than one modality (type of bodywork) so that I could combine some of the endless appointments and also wanted to find someone that did k-taping after attempting it with him myself and seeing some positive changes.

Enter Cristina's Equine Massage - she does everything from BEMER to k-taping and I will tell you honestly I have NEVER seen my horse enjoy bodywork the way he does when Cristina works on him. Her pricing is super competitive as well thank gooooddd as my vet bills are still *crazy. She also writes up a fantastic detailed report on areas of tension, notes about muscle development and recommendations for stretching/exercises.

I think Opi says it all. We are super excited to be heading into show season (fingers crossed!) with Cristina's amazing help!"

"Hi Cristina, Pilly was a different horse - back to the horse I knew.  He was mellow and cuddly and even allowed me to rub the side of his neck as you instructed without throwing his head up in the air.  We decided just to lunge to check out his movement and also because there is still heat in the front right.  His movement right off the bat was smooth, tracking up and we saw far more hind leg coming underneath then we ever have.  Not 1 trip.  My trainer was ecstatic as was I.  Your report is very informative. It is nice when your trainer worked at St. Hyacinthe as a vet tech and researcher as well as being the saddle fitter for your make of saddle.  All in all a great morning.Thank you again."

"He LOVES his Cristina time!! Now he always begs me to massage his poll when I'm grooming - but he says I don't do it as good as she does."

"Thanks so much for all of your work with Panda today! I noticed when I was leading her back to her paddock that she landed more evenly on her back feet. Fiona commented on how relaxed she looked"

"So the good news is I finally rode Felix and he was lovely. The bad news is he might need regular massages 😜 He even stood still for grooming!!"
