About Mechanics for the Equine Athlete
Heidi Pichotta has been a therapist for 18 years and is trained in a variety of equine modalities including myofascial release, therapeutic, deep tissue, acupressure, neuro-muscular, cold laser, and cranial sacral. Heidi balances the body by soft tissue manipulation, mobilization, release, and re-education.
Heidi not only is able to give your horse the extra edge that is needed for top performance and longevity, she can also help speed up your horse's recovery and aid in preventing future injuries.
Every performance horse requires maintenance, and one of the utmost effective means of maintaining any athlete is reducing inflammation and keeping the muscles healthy and elastic. This, in turn, ensures the joints and skeletal system are not over stressed, which can result in injury. The harder an athlete works, the greater the need for body-work to keep muscles in top shape. When we ask for maximum effort from our horse, it will inevitably put stress on their body. Horses, just like human athletes, on a regular body-work program, have fewer injuries, illnesses, recover faster, and perform better. Our bodywork program does all that and much more.
Additionally Heidi is one of the only independently trained saddle fitters in the Midwest, i.e her education did not come from a saddle company but rather independent master saddlers. She does not sell saddles, she fits saddles.
Heidi Pichotta works in conjunction with top veterinarians, farriers, and other reputable health care providers across the country to achieve optimum results. After all, every athlete needs a skilled team to keep them performing at their best!
