ESMA Chairman’s 2014 Website News
2014 is shaping up to be an excellent year for ESMA. Our Conference and AGM was held this year at the prestigious Tattersalls, Newmarket. This amazing venue provided a stunning backdrop to the lectures and demonstrations of this two day event, ensuring the Conference was a resounding success. Prof. J-M Denoix was a fountain of knowledge, capturing the undivided attention of all in attendance, Equine Vets and Paraprofessionals alike. Click here for a full report.
ESMA is still heavily involved in the review of minor procedures regime (RMPR), working towards providing a stable framework for recognition and regulation of practitioners working within the veterinary sector. The Animal Healthcare Professionals council (AHPC) has been formed and is made up of professional association members, with the starting objectives of defining their areas of practice, entry requirements, codes of professional conduct and practice.
This year the Committee continues to work tirelessly behind the scenes ensuring ESMA provides ongoing unparalleled support to all its members, not only with CPD opportunities, but also on an individual basis with business and clinical advice.
ESMA members are some of the most highly qualified, knowledgeable and outstanding Musculo-Skeletal Therapists in the world. The skill, scientific judgement and art of an equine therapist in our field of specialism, necessitates a thorough understanding of the equine anatomical systems. Thus ensuring the framework to work, assess and apply equine massage appropriately.
As the new Chairman of ESMA, I am honoured to have been given the opportunity to help steer and guide such a professional Association with its wealth of highly qualified, respected and specialist practitioners.
ESMA continues to grow, remaining at the forefront of our profession - Equine Sports Massage.
