Welcome to CD Sports Therapy!
We specialize in improving performance, speeding up recovery rates, and supporting rehabilitation for people and horses.
The equine and human body consist of a series of kinetic myofascial lines that have natural tendencies to create imbalances. If not rebalanced and maintained, compensational patterns due to these imbalances can lead to pain, injury, and decreased performance.
We offer integrated bodywork modalities, backed by over 30 years combined experience, for you and your horse so that you both can stay in optimal balance, live pain free, and function at peak performance.
Every patient is different. That's why we listen, set goals, and create personalized treatment plans that work best to restore healthy myofascial muscle function.
When you work with us we become invested in your success!

“Christy has been working on my horses and some of my clients horses for several year. She does a fantastic job and I can really feel a difference. I highly recommend her!”
I offer bodywork on a regular basis to equine athletes as part of their wellness program. Its purpose is to help the equine athlete achieve physiological balance & peak performance. Bodywork is recommended every 2-4 weeks for horses in full work, and as needed every 2-4 months for pleasure horses.
Show & Event Bodywork
Event bodywork focuses on relieving pain, mobilizing joints through motion stretch therapy, and restoring vigor and vitality to fatigued muscles. Deep tissue work is not applied at shows so the horses will not become sore from the bodywork. PEMF therapy is offered to reduce inflammation and pain in joints.
I offer bodywork clinics for horse owners to learn simple bodywork techniques that can increase your horse's muscloskeletal health & performance. Topics include assessment, kinesiotaping, stretching, myofascial release, and massage.
I am available for equine bodywork and biomechanics lectures. Lectures include a painted horse model with examples on how to detect common imbalances and areas of restriction in the horse. Kinesiotaping and motion stretch release techniques will also be demonstrated.
