Horses are very sensitive and can hold emotional trauma just like people. They are flight animals and run away from danger. A change in routine, owner, losing a field companion, illness or injury can have a negative effect. The body reacts by secreting too much stress hormone and it leaves the horse on chronic high alert that often shows up with behavioural changes and over reaction to situations. Both these therapies can help to relieve the stress levels from fight and flight to rest and digest by tuning into the central nervous system returning the body to balance and calm.

Is your horse under performing:

Reluctant to jump, short strided, restricted forward movement , stiff legs? Try a treatment session and see what it can do for your horse.

It can create immediate change!

A treatment coming out of winter and after competition can help maintain suppleness and prevent soft tissue tightening and restrictions.

Equine CST

CranioSacral Therapy is a safe, gentle and effective therapy that works by facilitating the body’s own natural healing powers to remove or lessen the effects of stress on the whole body. It works by tuning into the physiological system known as the craniosacral system with a very light touch to the tissues. The information received from the tissues allows connection to the animal’s inner wisdom that guides and self corrects. It is a tissue based therapy using immeasurable energetic components especially when working with horses. CST can have a profound calming and rebalancing effect. Horses love it.

It is an amazingly gentle, fast effective non-invasive therapy that is used to ease pain and discomfort , increase movement and improve quality of life. It works equally well on both humans and animals. It is based on the belief that light touch can trigger a relaxation response in the soft tissue of the body and that the therapist may help relieve tensions resulting in increased movement, balance, flexibility and performance.
