What is Equine Osteopathy?
Life is characterized by motion.
A horse’s body is designed to have all joints, muscles and tissues move harmoniously with each other. When dis-ease or trauma occur, this natural harmony can be disturbed. An osteopath is trained to locate immobility and normalize it. This restores the body’s self healing mechanism by allowing the nerves and blood vessels to flow more freely, carrying information and nutrients throughout the body more efficiently
Equine osteopathy is a manual therapy adapted from human osteopathy, that addresses the three main systems of the body:
-Parietal (spine and limbs)
-Cranial Sacral (skull, brain and tissues around the central nervous system)
