At Blue Oak Veterinary Bodywork we exclusively perform complementary care such as veterinary chiropractic, acupuncture and massage therapy. Years of focus on these complementary treatment modalities has given us unparalleled expertise in these areas.
We pride ourselves on providing thorough, outstanding care. We take the time to thoroughly assess each horse, identify their unique problems and treat them accordingly.
Equestrian disciplines are uniquely challenging because so much is based on “feel”. We at Blue Oak Veterinary Bodywork actively ride and compete giving us unique insight in to the riding “feel” allowing us to understand the problem on a deeper level and get to the root of the issue.
Our patients range from mini’s and back yard companion horses all the way to FEI and Olympic level horses. Different levels of performance often brings different end goals for therapy. We can adjust our treatment plan to meet your goals and get the best results possible.

There she saw the benefits that bodywork, laser therapy and acupuncture could provide to the clinically ill and to the top equine athletes.

In addition to her sports massage, Ashley uses acupressure and trigger point techniques along with stretching exercises ensuring to get the most benefits out of each session.
