EQUINE THERAPY
By Referral Only

Why Equine Therapy

Much like humans, horses can suffer from muscle soreness, physical imbalances, overtraining, undertraining, and injury, all of which can affect range of motion, cause movement issues, tissue dysfunction and elicit pain. My philosophy centres around seeking to address the root cause of a problem and attend to the affected structures by considering all factors both internal and external to the horse. Massage, myofascial release, physical therapy, and osteopathy are both well known for their evidence-based methodology and success in decreasing muscle tension, scar tissue, and other mobility related restrictions. Additional benefits include increasing circulation and digestive function, rebalancing of metabolic system, and improving motor control and neuromuscular activity. 

My Approach

As an equine therapist I take a holistic approach to assessment and therapy in looking at all factors that could contribute to the issues presenting which sometimes includes assessing the rider as well. Check out my RMT page to learn more about my human practice.

What techniques will be applied

Treatments combine massage, physical therapy, osteopathy, craniosacral, and applied kinesiology in order to best treat your equine companion.​ Just as with humans, all relevant techniques will be applied to your horse depending on the specific needs at that time. A short and long-term treatment plan will be developed between horse, owner, and therapist.

I also offer courses for you

In addition to individual equine therapy services, I also offer a series of equine therapy courses for horse owners as well as other credentialed equine therapists. Live and online options available.

My Education

I have spent the greater portion of my life seeking education and knowledge. Having completed multiple diplomas in both equine and human therapies, I bring a wide array of experience to my treatments. With the understanding that expertise only comes to those who dedicate their lives to their craft, I have further embarked on this journey in deciding to complete studies in both Human and Equine Osteopathy.
