If you've ever had a massage, then you probably don't need to be convinced of its benefits for working out stiffness or knots and helping you relax.
So if it works for humans, why not for animals? That's what Lincoln resident Judith Falk thought eight years ago when she hired an equine massage therapist for her daughter's Appaloosa mare, who was suffering from arthritis. Smokey was able to relax under the practitioner's touch and Falk realized the benefits of equine massage. Three years ago, Judith Falk completed her training to become a Certified Equine Massage Therapist. She recently spoke with VPR's Rick Cengeri about her work.
