Competitive Edge Therapeutic Massage
Specializing in therapeutic massage for horse and rider
Located in Colorado but enjoys traveling regularly to Illinois, Wisconsin and other areas, Jackie Gladu has been a friend and co-worker in the field of massage therapy and myofascial release of horses and riders for almost 20 years. She trained in Massage Therapy at Kishwaukee Valley Community College in Dekalb, IL.

Jackie has continued her search for excellence in information and technique all the years I have known her. You cannot go wrong having her work with You and/or Your horse to attain significantly higher levels of performance. I am pleased to fully endorse her work and to have been her friend and peer over the years.

Jackie also uses the numerous books I've written as textbooks while teaching clinics at various locations throughout the US, teaching horsemen and horsewomen how to maintain symmetries attained through my BREMM method of myofascial release. Jackie is also a Reiki Master and custom saddle fitter, helping riders achieve balance and harmony from the ground up.

Massage & More Equine Therapy -
Located in Western New York, Terry Chrisafulli has been a friend and co worker for going on 25 years now. We have met and shared information as our schedules permitted all this time. She is certified in the Masterson technique with Jim Masterson and pursues many avenues of adjunct information that makes her work more and more effective. As I work toward retirement, I have recommended Terry to several farms I worked with. Each one has sent me a thank you note for recommending her as they were so very pleased. I am very glad to have her as a friend and to feel so good about recommending her to others.
