The first written record of massage for use on animals dates back to 430 B.C. when the Greek philosopher Flavius Arrianus recommended that massage be used on horses to keep their muscles supple and strong and their coats glossy. This document depicts acupressure points, or Sen lines, of the horse anatomy for use in Thai massage.
The principles, components and techniques of animal massage are the same as in human massage therapy and its practice as an alternative therapy, is slowly gaining favor in modern animal husbandry. When properly prescribed, massage benefits the equine athlete psychologically; increases flexibility, mobility and relaxation; prevents injury, and may enhance performance. Drawn on charcoal coated mulberry paper and written in a Northern Thai script that is no longer used.
