My name is Mindy Greenwell, and I started Elevated Equine because I believe that every horse can benefit from massage and every owner should get a chance to see the benefits it can bring. My goal with Elevated Equine is to provide elevated care for both the performance and pleasure horse alike. I strive to bring awareness to alternative therapies and to increase the overall well being of every horse I massage.
I too used to be a skeptic when it came to equine massage. I didn't become a believer until I saw the difference it made in a friend's jumper who flipped herself over and had a hard time recovering. With the use of massage the horse improved leaps and bounds rather than one little lame step at a time. (The horse was seen by a vet first thing and cleared for massage, always consult your vet first!). After seeing the difference massage made in that horses life I decided that I wanted to be able to impact horses (and owner's) lives and I set out on my journey to become certified. Since then I have worked on numerous horses who have had long lasting, nearly immediate changes, including my own personal horses. I have personally seen the amazing effect massage has had on not only their performance but their overall mood and well being.
I am based out of Louisville, KY but I do travel. I am a certified ESMT (Equine Sports Massage Therapist) through Equissage, Inc., Certified in ANMR for both large and small animals and a Certified Equine Craniosacral Therapist through Dr. Angelique Barbara. I am always doing continued education and learning new things to ensure I have lots of tools in my belt to use with your horses. I absolutely love what I do, and I love making a difference in horses lives!

*Equine massage therapy, craniosacral therapy, and ANMR cannot be used to diagnose, treat, or prevent any illness. Injuries should be seen by a vet before beginning any alternative therapies. You may be referred to a vet at any time by our equine therapist as they see fit. Equine massage therapy can be used to help prevent injuries to soft tissue however.
