The Equine Touch for Horses

This modality can be equally as effective on any animal suffering from pain and imbalance in the body.

Horses respond extremely well to Equine Touch. During a 30-minute session, quite often the horse goes to sleep as he relaxes. But what does Equine Touch do?

What is Equine Touch?

A young horse often needs help with his natural balance; Equine Touch can often assist with this.

A competition horse is kept locked up in a stable for most of the day and is then expected to come out of his stable and be on form, Equine Touch assists the release of muscle tightness and stiffness and therefore assisting in the prevention of the injury before it occurs.

Any horse regardless of age or illness can often find great pain relief from Equine Touch.

On a practical level Equine Touch consists of a series of gentle vibration moves performed over specific points in specific choreographed patterns, some of which may be interspersed with observation periods to allow the equine to recognise and process the effects of these procedures.

These soft tissue vibrations when performed correctly with the ET move have the effect of releasing spasms, distortions and adhesions in the connective tissue, and smooth muscle of organs. In synergy they stimulate the body's natural inclination towards balance and harmony in its structure and function as well as creating awareness of placement and motion within the equine.

For instance such a soft tissue correction can very quickly restore the compromised saddle area of the horse to its full pain -free-mechanical function or at the very least relieve or reduce the current level of pain giving it a better quality of life.

When should Equine Touch not be used?

There are certain moves that could possibly cause uterus contractions therefore this procedure should not be carried out on a pregnant mare.

It should also be stressed that Equine Touch is not a medical or veterinary procedure and in all cases of injury, lameness or illness, veterinary attention should be sought and the agreement of a veterinary surgeon should be obtained before an alternative modality is introduced.

This modality can be equally as effective on any animal suffering from pain and imbalance in the body.
