What are the benefits of Equine Cranio-Sacral Therapy?

Cranio-sacral therapy is a subtle touch therapy for horses that is used to measure and enhance the function of a system in the body known as the Cranio-sacral system. This comprises the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord, and is in turn directly connected to the bones of the skull, vertebrae, sacrum and pelvis. Treatment centres on removing restrictions from these areas. Like Shiatsu, it works with the body instead of forcefully imposing changes upon it.

Clients often seek Cranio-Sacral therapy for horses who are headshakers, and can also be beneficial in the treatment of horses with TMJ problems which can come about through poor dental treatment or bitting issues. It is also particularly valuable for helping horses who have experienced any kind of head trauma, It works well with “Equine Shiatsu” and Kate will often use both treatment protocols for her clients.
