Here’s a Valentine’s Day gift for you for your horse. If you e-mail me by midnight tomorrow, February 15, 2011, I’ll send you my e-book, More Massage Moves for Horse Lovers for free, just for fun, and love, of course!

I also should post, that I will be getting more consistent with blog posts later this year. (Not to mention the somewhat neglected Facebook page!) But for the next few months I need to focus on getting my current on-line classes fully developed, and delivered to my earliest students. (New students always welcome of course. Lessons are all recorded, so you can begin anytime.)

The courses are Equine Back Pain and Helping Your Dog’s Hips. I hope you’ll check them out if you haven’t already.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

A year ago now (yikes!) I did a couple of posts sharing one of my very favorite techniques for the withers (and back and neck while you’re at it). First I described the Wither Rock, and then another post on the Wither Lift (both techniques are also in my book, The Horse Lover’s Guide to Massage).

Now here’s another Horse Tip Daily podcast where I talk about them.

(I will also be making a free video sometime this year teaching these very important techniques. They are fantastic for helping your horse’s body, and also for monitoring how they’re doing. And they’re so easy, if you do them right!)

I don’t seem to have the right code to put the “Listen Now” button directly here, but you can just go to the Horse Tip Daily website, and listen to the podcast there at this link. (Scroll down to find where you can hit play and “Listen now.”

This is about one of the techniques taught in the free webinar, Natural Healing Secrets for Rescued and Adopted Animals, which you can get by joining my e-mail members here.

Here’s a rare glimpse under the skin at living fascia (connective tissue) through a microscope.

I have the DVD myself, “Strolling Under the Skin,” and am thrilled to see at least a little of it available on YouTube to share with you.

You may be fascinated by what the narrator is saying, or totally overwhelmed, but just please enjoy the “wow” factor of the visual images, and don’t let the speed and complexity of the narration put you off the overall impression, that fascia is cool! (And so is Myofascial Release!)

The webinar I did this week, Natural Healing Secrets for Rescued and Adopted Animals, is now available as a recording. To receive the link, along with some more free stuff, go to www.RescueHorseMassage.com! (Once there, look at the right side margin and you’ll see a blue box with a link to “Get them all here.”)

Here’s another great resource if you’d like to learn more about saddle fitting, Dawn’s Saddle Blog at Olson’s, and I’ll tell you a couple of reasons I feel especially confident in recommending it.

1. Blog author, Dawn Anderson, is totally passionate about her own learning and training on this topic. She’s already pursued some of the highest quality education available, and isn’t slowing down one bit. In the years to come, I have no doubt she will be one of the top experts in the field.

2. Thanks to the integrity of both Dawn and her employer, Olson’s Tack owner Mike Akers, Dawn’s income is strictly salary, with no perks from commissions on saddle sales. This means that when helping clients assess saddle fit, Dawn can be completely unbiased toward which saddle to recommend, or even whether to sell you a saddle at all.

So be sure to check out Dawn’s Blog!

Registration is now available for my first webinar! The first topic is massage tips especially suited for rescued and adopted animals, as you can see in the title above.

Go to www.RescueHorseMassage.com to register for the event.

It’s a 1 hr free webinar. Just click on the link and it will take you step-by-step through the process of registering and attending. You can attend live, or listen to a recording later anytime. You’ll automatically be e-mailed a link to the recording later if you register.

But before you can register, you’ll have to confirm your request for the subscription, so be sure to watch your e-mails!

The information in the webinar will apply extremely well to horses, as well as to dogs and cats and many other species. Very soon I’ll have a more in-depth, on-line class dedicated especially to rescue horses (and different classes for dogs and cats).

I look forward to sharing lots of information with you in the webinar!
