Equine Touch is a non-diagnostic, non-invasive energy and muscle release that works at an holistic level, addressing the horse as a whole. The gentle non-invasive procedures re-educate the horse's body to re-balance at a cellular level.
Equine Touch is complimentary to orthodox veterinary medicine and is a body work system. Equine Touch encourages the horse's body to move towards balance, which maximises the efficiency of the body systems.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-Key) means Universal Life Force and is a powerful healing art that uses universal life energy to encourage the body's natural healing processes. It is possible to heal physical, emotional and mental issues.
Reiki is non-diagnosic, non-invasive and can be given anywhere at any time as no special equipment is needed. The recipient's need or imbalance draws energy through the practitioner who acts as a channel. Reiki supports all forms of treatment both orthodox and complimentary.
Personal experience has found animals respond quickly to the ease that Reiki produces. Reiki always works to the highest good for the animal. It is effective for emotional issues and distress often caused by past negative experiences. Newly re-homed rescue animals can benefit by helping with their transition into their new home/life.
Reiki can help prepare animals for surgery and can be a useful aid to postoperative healing.
Reiki even allows animals that prefer not to be touched to benefit in a positive way, because Reiki is just as effective from a distance.
Both humans and animals can benefit from Reiki.
CANINE AND EQUINE MASSAGE
Massage has many benefits for animals, which can be divided into physical and mental.
The physical benefits include aiding 'fittening' in horses for a range of disciplines and dogs for agility or any working task. The term 'fittening' refers not only to the heart and lungs but also strengthening of the muscles and the nervous system that controls those muscles. Massage can improve muscle strength and innervation, which is the muscle's nerve supply, allowing the animal to perform more easily and comfortably.
The psychological benefits include calming a nervous animal, which is an advantage to both the horse and dog owner.
Many horses and dogs suffer injuries, which affect their working life, some occur as a result of everyday stresses and strains. Some breeds of dog suffer injuries prevalent to their breed. It is important to maintain muscle strength and flexibility as dogs get old.
There are many injuries that affect horses and dogs, but the most common ones fall into two types.
1) Soft tissue injuries do not include bone but are most commonly tendon or ligament
2) Degenerative problems are the result of excessive damage to the bones or joints, these progress over time
Injuries are nearly always the result of multi-factoral causes, as there is often not one clear cause.
Regular massage can help minimise the risk of injury occurring and detect early signs.
Appointments for Canine and Equine Massage, Equine Touch and Reiki Healing are available. Animals are normally visited in their own home and horses are usually visited in their own yard or field. Please contact for further information.
Please note that none of the above modalities are a substitute for proper veterinary care. If you have an animal that is ill or injured it is vital that you seek veterinary advice as soon as possible.
