About RA Therapy & Training

I’m Robyn Hutchinson and I’m the proud owner of RA Therapy & Training

My interest in equestrian sport originally led me to train as a riding instructor, however once qualified as a BHS Intermediate Instructor (now known as a BHS Stage 4 Senior Coach) I allowed my fascination for biomechanics, injury and rehabilitation to grow and initially trained in both Human and Equine Bowen Therapy finally leaving my position as a Senior Instructor at Wellington Riding to begin RA Therapy & Training in September 2008.

Over the years my passion for working with both horse and rider to minimise injury and maximise performance has developed and I have continued to add to my portfolio of techniques, allowing me to now offer a unique combination of services to clients with both two and four legs! I currently use a combination of Sports and Remedial Massage, Bowen Therapy, Kinesiology Taping and Rehabilitation Programmes to benefit human clients and Veterinary Physiotherapy and Equine Bowen Therapy for my animal clients.

In 2020 the completion of my post graduate studies in Veterinary Physiotherapy (NAVP) allowed me the time to launch  RA Therapy providing a comfortable, private treatment room with free parking for a range of human treatments in Shipston on Stour. As a sister business to RA Therapy & Training more information about these treatments can be found at www.ratherapy.co.uk

2021 has become the most exciting year so far for RA Therapy & Training, as I am thrilled to have opened a dedicated professional equine rehabilitation centre. This centre aims to provide, rehabilitation and convalescent care as horses recover from a wide range of injuries and traumas. The facilities provided by RA Therapy & Training also create an excellent environment for the training of both horses and riders allowing me to continue perfecting partnerships for peak performance!
