I understand that equine massage therapy services offered by Vitality Equine are never a replacement for proper veterinary care. Signs of lameness or illness are contraindications to equine massage therapy. I understand that if my horse is showing any signs of lameness or illness, Vitality Equine cannot proceed with body work until it has been cleared by a veterinarian. I understand that the Vitality Equine practitioner will not diagnose conditions, attempt any adjustments/musculoskeletal manipulations or prescribe medications, nutraceuticals or supplements for my horse. If my horse is currently being seen by a veterinarian, I have cleared this work with the attending veterinarian to ensure body work is at this time is appropriate for the horse. I acknowledge that muscle releases may result in underlying muscle mechanisms being exposed that were previously masked through compensatory movements.
By signing this document I acknowledge that I have read and understand it and all of its provisions and I am signing voluntarily. I do hereby waive and release Vitality Equine from all liability, past, present and future.
