Horses are put under a lot of stress and strain in the way we manage them, how they are trained exposing them to all sorts of injuries and traumas, many of which don't come in to our attention. Maybe your horse panicked and had a 'pull back' this could trigger a number a stresses and tightness's in the horses body. Tight tack such as nose bands can restrict some very important nerves in the horses head, these become affected over time becoming sore and irritated creating issues for the horse to be bridled. Craniosacral is effective at address these specific areas of tightness and soreness within the tissues.
The horses nervous system and musculoskeletal is complex Craniosacral therapy can help to create deep relaxation and tapping in to the body's own healing mechanisms to bring about balance and re-organisation.
After the session I ask for up to three days non ridden depending on how regular your horse has cranial or Reiki and what happens in the session. Its important for these rest days so your horse can integrate the session and get the most out of them.
Not necessarily, your horse comes into regular pressure from head collars, bridles and other tack on a regular basis this influences the cranium the bones in the skull. Tightness and pressure can build which effects the horses cranial rhythm which in the long run has an affect on the horses bio-mechanics. Craniosacral therapy can help to orientate to better balance with in the horses craniosacral systems.
It is the Law get the vets permission before I see your horse, please give them a call and notify them of my visit. Ideally the session happens in a quiet part of the day avoiding routine times such as feeding time or turnout where the horse can easily get distracted and not able to concentrate.
Cranio is a great way to help support your horses over all health and well being. I have experienced help with postural issues, soreness in the body, headaches, behavioral problems, body stiffness, stress horses, TMJ/TMD (temporal mandibular joint dysfunction), difficulty in eating, shyness around the head and ears head shaking Box rest, breathing. Its also a wonderful way to offer some after competition care.
