“The more and more you listen, the more and more you hear; the more and more you hear, the deeper and deeper your understanding becomes.” – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Each treatment may differ to the next depending on the needs of the horse. It is the horse who will indicate what areas need releasing. It is often the case that the perceived site of the injury or ‘problem’ is not necessarily indicative of the area that the horse needs attention.
Sessions last between 45 and 60 minutes, sometimes longer.
Healing will continue for many hours after the treatment. It is important for the horse to physically move through some of the releases and therefore I highly recommend leaving the horse for the day on pasture or in a paddock rather than stabling them, to allow free movement, calmness and relaxation. Should the horse not have access to free roaming space, light walks in hand are a good alternative.
The horse should not be ridden, lunged or worked directly after a treatment and for a horse newly introduced to energy work, it is strongly advised that they do not participate in shows for a few days following a session. So it is best to schedule the first few sessions with no expectations on the day after the treatment.
Enabling the body to tap into its innate wisdom so deep healing can take place
Settling the central nervous system
Reducing muscle tension & body stress
Increasing flexibility and range of motion
Reducing and relieving pain
Stimulating the immune system
Promoting the healing of injuries; assisting with injury prevention
Remedying misalignments caused by ill-fitting saddles
Regular energy & bodywork will transform both the horse and the relationship between you and the horse. Over time, and depending on the complexity of layers, you should see the horse shifting towards a more balanced version of him/herself. A truly rewarding journey for a horse and their person.
Please note that this modality is not a substitution for veterinary care. It is always good to inform your trusted vet of any additional treatments so that we can collaborate in the best interests of your horse.
