What We Do
EQUINE CRANIAL THERAPY
Cranial therapy is a potent modality that forms the basis of the osteopathic approach to assessment of the body as a whole.
If you want to learn how to effectively work with the nervous system to resolve chronic issues in your equine clients and bring vitality into the body then this is the certification program for you. Online and live options available.
For therapists desiring a systematic approach to orthopaedic assessment of the equine client. This series contains three live online courses required to be taken in order from forelimb, hindlimb, to spinal assessment.
Upon completion of the full series of courses, therapists will obtain a head to hoof musculoskeletal assessment for each joint that makes up the equine skeleton. Each course builds on the next and must be taken in order from forelimb, hindlimb, to spinal.

This online mini-course will guide you through basic anatomy and physiology of the diaphragm including an assessment protocol and simple techniques that anyone can learn.
