Equine Bowen Therapy

 

 

Equine Bowen Therapy is a muscle release therapy that is effective in the treatment of a wide range of acute and chronic conditions covering both physical and emotional issues in your horse.  The Bowen technique is a gentle yet powerful non-invasive technique that addresses the whole body, this enables the body to correct dysfunctions and restore a natural balance to all the bodies systems, it stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities and repair mechanisms and can assist in the relief of pain, discomfort and behavioural issues bringing about improved health and well-being to your horse.  During your horse’s treatment, I apply a series of cross fibre manoeuvres on various points on your horse’s body over specific muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia which separates the fibres.  The treatment involves resting periods in between a sequence of moves to allow the body to absorb the information and respond accordingly.

Ulcers - Stomach or Hind Gut

Ulcers are more common than you think. Studies suggest that around 97% of racehorses, 50 – 60% of dressage horses, 93% of high level endurance horses, 88% of standardbreds, 71% of broodmares and 37% of purely leisure horses have stomach ulcers.

Gastric Ulcers

When doing bowen, I check the trigger points for gastric ulcers as part of my assessment. I take into account the horses history (both long term and recent), feed and living conditions and the number and severity of reactions from the trigger points. I can not diagnose gastric ulcers as I am not a vet but I can advise on the likelihood that a horse could have them.

Are Horses Dangerous?

I know this is going to be a contentious topic but I feel it needs to be said.
Horses always have the potential to be dangerous. I could post 50 links to videos of dangerous horse behaviour and I could post another 100 links of videos and photos of horses where things could have potentially gone very wrong and didn’t.
