I was excited that I now had the ability to combine my 2 passions of both horses and sports and show people the benefits of Athletic Therapy and Craniosacral therapy. There were so many advantages of having to complete the human aspect of craniosacral therapy prior to working with horses. Horses show you how they feel whether good or bad and lick, chew and yawn to name of few when they release, but humans can verbally tell you what they are feeling during and following treatment. It is the best way to learn to feel with your hands and trust your instincts. I have found there is an importance to have treatment done on yourself to understand what your clients feel during a session.
Following my first equine craniosacral course I started working on my own horse. I was amazed at his reactions and the benefits he had. I remember going back to my equine instructor for craniosacral and talking about what I found and wanting to learn more. I kept working with my own horse to ensure my skills and hands were up to the task and kept educating myself through more craniosacral therapy courses for humans and our equine friends. At this point I opened Equine Head to Tail Healing in 2012 and haven’t looked back since. I continue to educate myself to benefit all my clients, 2 legged and 4 legged ones. Through the years I have had the pleasure of seeing horses, their riders and my human clients see and feel the benefits of this form of treatment not only for themselves but for their horses as well.
I leave you today and only ask one thing, ask questions and educate yourselves, the more you know and understand the better it is for your horse and yourself.
