Equine Osteopathy

The philosophy behind Equine Osteopathy is: for the body to be truly healthy, all tissues must have proper mobility thus affecting the flow of blood, lymph and nerve impulses. 


In Equine Osteopathy, an understanding of the autonomic nervous system and the gamma loop theory combines a deep understanding of equine anatomy and physiology with spinal and extremity joint manipulation, visceral (organ) manipulation, and cranial sacral therapy to release blockades and return the body back to optimum mobility. With the return of mobility, the vital force is able to flow again to assist and promote the body’s innate self-healing mechanism.
