Equine Musculoskelatal Unwinding

Level 1 Equine Musculoskeletal Unwinding  is all soft work but very very effective in correcting gait abnormalities, saddle fitting issues, and mysterious lameness issues. As well as helping the horse to get more wind and thus more stamina as the body can take in more oxygen as well as having more drive and push from the hind end. Soft gentle moves to manually release and keep the skeleton in proper form and function is where we start thus helping the body to load the joints and hoof correctly. Also deep muscle unwinding from the inside out has the horse presenting a body 2″ taller, 4″ longer and they look as if they have gained 20 pounds after a 1 hour session. As well as helping to balance Chakras and Acupressure Meridians. The key is to release the 1st rib which is out in most foals by age 7 months. This creates the high/low syndrome in front hooves. Most professional modalities and holistic equine training courses do not address these issues so then you are always working on the ‘symptom’ and not the cause which is why the chiropractic issues come back.

Level 2 Advanced Applied Kinesiology and Cranial Sacral Unwinding

In this class we go deeper to release the inner core muscles and Fascia all over the body. This Fascia releasing also helps the Organs to relax and glide internally as they should. This helps the acupressure meridians come back into balance as well. The advanced muscle testing kinesiology is about what does this area need to heal? For how long? Then what does the body need to come back to whole health wellness and full potential? Is anything else needed? For how long? Using these methods many horses labeled ‘unfixeable’ have come back to healthy sound happy lives. Cranial bones are addressed as well as the students receiving and giving a cranial unwinding session, to feel in their body what we are giving to the beloved Equines we work on. Many horses with Uveitis, Kissing Spine, Wobblers syndrome and String-halt http://www.thehorse.com/articles/26838/stringhalt-in-horses have been helped in our 3 day workshops as well as private appointments. April@holistichorseworks.com to inquire about private equine alternative therapy course sessions. 



This video takes the Musculoskeletal Unwinding to the next level as we go deeper to release tension in the Fascia not allowing the organs, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and joints to load or move correctly.
This is what is creating your mysterious lameness. Why are the hooves not under the shoulder or hip as they should be? Did you know that this creates premature arthritic conditions like sidebone, ringbone, kissing spine, arthritic knees and hocks?
Then what else is next? A lot! We use advanced Applied Kinesiology to ask where there is pain in the body and what the body needs to release the energetic blocks so it can heal. The area that is painful and lame is not where it usually starts though so we back track it thru the body to find the cause as well. What does the horse need to heal? For how many days? And then what? Also we look at the energy meridians and how that affects the horse and what you can do about it.
This knowledge will help the Practitioner excel at finding the problem areas in competition and equine athletes to help keep them sound and performing at their peak for many years to come .
The Workbook for this program will be emailed to you shortly.
