"In "Beyond Horse Massage" the reader is introduced to a method of unique, interactive bodywork that is done with the horse, not to the horse, and horses love it. . . . A must-have for horse lovers and guardians as well as professional bodyworkers!" --"Natural Horse "(January 4, 2012) "The book starts with an introduction and overview to his method, and then breaks down each technique into several steps, with clear, concise instructions and several color photos. Masterson covers all points on the body from head to tail... Judging by the happy horse 'patient' in the DVD, The Masterson Method works!" --"Horsemen's Yankee Pedlar" (June 2012) "By means of gentle manipulation of targeted release points, the movement of joints or junctions through a range of motion in a related state, and observation of the horse's responses, readers can open doors to improved health, performance and communication." --"Lone Star Horse Report "(June 2012) "Masterson clearly demonstrates exactly how to manipulate the horse's neck, front and hind legs to create the desired tension-freeing and movement-enhancing effect. [This set is] best suited for: any horse owner or trainer interested in improving the performance, and comfort, of their horses." --"Horse Journal" (November 2012)
