If you have horses in the New York metropolitan area
that need loosening up or are sore, I can help.
This type of treatment is novel and strange-looking, but is very
effective. I use it on my own horses regularly and to
prepare them and many others for racing. It is ALWAYS effective.
It is done carefully with a mallet and a padded block of wood.
It usually takes no more than 10 minutes.
Only muscles are affected. It is the best way to reach the
deepest muscles and, in my experience, no other treatment can match it.
All the horses I have treated this way have tolerated it and usually
loved it. They often yawn and sigh when I am done.
Entire male horses often show the effect in another more graphic way.
Most horses known to be nasty and hard to handle get into it and enjoy it
after the first few blows. Unbridled Song, Seattle Encounter,
and Jet Jockey were among them. Their handlers were amazed at how they
cooperated and responded. Many won their races right after
having been hammered. Many of the horses on the "Success Stories" page
were prepped that way, including all of my own.
A thoroughbred I recently prepped this way won easily at Aqueduct, breaking
his maiden, paying $48 to win.
I have given owners and trainers demonstrations on themselves.
This has usually led to their asking me to do their horses.
I apply Impact Bodywork to many prominent jockeys and harness drivers.
It loosens them up and gets rid of muscular spasms.
Some of the better-known regulars were: drivers Ron Pierce, Jack Moiseyev,
and Mike Gagliardi and jockeys Jose Santos, Mike Smith,
Julie Krone, Angel Cordero (when he was a trainer), and Braulio Baeza
(when he was a trainer). Lately I have worked on top jockeys
John Velazquez, Edgar Prado, Javier Castellano, Jorge Chavez,
and Herb McCauley and I have regularly been treating one of the
more successful trainers at the NYRA tracks, himself. I regularly
work on a prominent surgeon, giving special attention to his hands.
