The Equine Massage/ Muscle Therapy Programs are operated by Mike Scott. His head instructor is Joyce Falese. Joyce apprenticed with Mike over 15 years ago and has a thriving private practice in SC and Florida.

Originally the training programs were held in Massachusetts and were affiliated with Bancroft School of Massage Therapy in Worc. MA. The home base for the Equine Massage and Saddle Fit School is now located in historic Camden SC.

In 1991, Mike started teaching intro courses and in 1994 his techniques evolved into a certification program in conjunction with Bancroft School of Massage Therapy. Since 2002, Mike went independent and his Equine Massage/Muscle Therapy Programs have also been offered to the general public (not only certified human massage therapists) to better educate more ambitious potential equine massage therapists.

The Equine Massage/Muscle Therapy Programs offer a Certification Program, Equine Massage 101 and Advanced Muscle Therapy. Mike also offers a Saddlefit Certification Program.

Also offered is a mentor program that is geared to the individual. Mike takes 1-2 students at a time for the determined amount of time. While the student gets ample class material, the most influence is in the field. Students learn first hand the techniques, ethics, boundaries, gait evaluation and anatomy that make one a successful therapist. Generally the morning is observation of 'real' clients while afternoon class time is focused on individual needs.
