About me

What I do

My name is Lena Rosqvist. I have worked as an equiterapeut since 1999 and have since then gathered a large amount of experience about the problems sport-horses can suffer. In my work I use acupuncture, acupressure, chiropractic, laser, stretch and massage.

To reach the best result I work very closely with several veterinarians and also take on horses for rehabilitation both in longer and shorter periods on my own farm. After one treatment, I also give the owner / trainer advice on how they can keep their horse healthier with acupressure, stretching and massage.

History

I’m basically an Equiterapeut specialized in acupuncture (I also have a 3-year old education and degree from Jiangxi University in Nan Chang, China where I learned to perform acupuncture on humans). I have also taken courses at the Veterinary College in Uppsala, as well as courses at Helsingborg Animal Hospital.

The reason I got into fitness for horses was that I had previously put four horses to sleep in the period of three years even though I had, when in the time of purchase, checked the health of the horses very closely at a veterinarian clinic. Even though I took these precautions problems appeared in just a few months. So I asked myself, how could it be? With over 30 years of experience with horses, I began to seriously consider why my friends’ and my horses were suffering from various injuries. Was it because of some wrong kind of training? Maladjusted equipment? Incorrect shoeing? Or was it because of previous injuries, conformation faults, etc?

Since humans have access to physiotherapists, chiropractors, naprapaths and so on, I decided that I wanted to become a physiotherapist for horses!

I welcome anybody with an interest to ask me for advice or even bring the horse with to my home reception. We’d calmly go through your horse, see the horse ridden and lunged, check the saddle and go through how you can help your horse with massages and stretching.
