for horses and massage therapy is now enjoying a resurgence of interest
in the care of the equine athlete. Massage is often the natural
modality of choice for increasing performance potential and management
of injuries: bodywork is non-invasive, drug-free, and relatively
low-cost. Therapeutic massage is not a substitute for proper veterinary
care, but can often enhance prescribed treatments.
Candi Hololio Johnson has been a horse lover since she was a small child and began her work
on horses at age 12 when her gelding was injured. Coming from a non-horse family, Candi learned to
help her first horse with intuitive bodywork. Candi was a massage therapist in private
practice since 1983 (OR license #1752) until her move to the Big Island of Hawai`i in 2016.
After six years in exclusively human practice, Candi apprenticed for over two years
in equine massage. The HorseWorks was begun as a professional equine bodywork
practice in 1989. Candi Hololio Johnson has worked primarily with sport and performance
horses in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Hawai'i since that time. She has presented
at many clinics and workshops, including the Equine Alternatives series.
Candi is available for equine bodywork by appointment, as well as clinics. Basic cost is $100
per equine session, with higher charges for a small number of animals or long distance travel.
Feel free to call and discuss specifics for your situation.
