Furthering Your Knowledge

 

In this 2-day clinic, we will be building on concepts and techniques learned in the first course and exploring the relationship between the nervous system and cardiovascular system with the various soft tissues already covered. Manual techniques for neuromuscular facilitation, visceral release, and the sacroiliac joints will be taught. The course includes a full online course ($99 value), a course manual ($25 value), snacks and refreshments 

Pre-requisite: Manual Therapy for Horse Owners 1

The Value of Manual Therapy

 

​Manual therapy is an effective treatment modality aimed at improving circulation, soft tissue tone, joint range of motion, neurological function, digestion, and even proprioception. By learning a basic anatomical foundation alongside specific manual techniques, you will be able to help your horse recover from training more efficiently, rehabilitate through injury, and maintain mobility well into their later years. This two-day workshop is for any horse owner, trainer, or handler who has already taken Manual Therapy for Horse Owners 1

NEW!

Now including full online course ($99 value) of all content to work through in advance at your own pace. Complete theory and technique videos, webinars, PDFs, guest lectures, and more!
