Equine Professionals

Image 1If you are a massage therapist from an accredited school, this course will benefit you—and your business—by adding knowledge and skill. When you complete our training, not only will you earn CEUs, but you will then be certified to perform these protocols on your equine clients. After completing our online course, you will better understand this affliction and the protocols to manage it. The hands-on course will give you the skill to apply these protocols to help the horse with lymphedema.

Other professionals (e.g., massage therapists, vet techs, physical therapists, appraisers, farriers, acupressurists, etc.) may also benefit from the online course and the ability to recognize this condition. (If you do not have a working knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of a horse, please go to the Horse Owner’s Guide.)

Equine lymphedema is challenging, but it is manageable. Join the Holistic Equine Academy of Lymphedema on a challenging and exciting journey of healing for both humans and horses.


The Professional’s Guide to Equine Lymphedema is focused on the professional who understands the anatomy and physiology of a horse. This workbook provides a high-level overview of the equine lymphatic system so you can recognize the symptoms and understand what is happening with a horse afflicted with lymphedema. We discuss what leads to equine lymphedema, and we provide suggestions and resources to manage it. For the massage therapist, this course must be taken as a prerequisite to, and in conjunction with, the hands-on training described below to qualify for CEUs.
