Equi-Bow Canada 3 Day Foundation Program Sept 24, 25 & Oct 21
Equi-Bow transforms the lives of horses and their people!
* complimentary & non-invasive,
* hands-on, gentle bodywork technique
* applied to horses to promote healing of the body
A number of methods and techniques such as massage, acupressure, acupuncture, and chiropractic also aim to promote healing and “rebalance” the body. Equi-Bow accomplishes healing and rebalancing with a very gentle approach, little or no discomfort and less physical effort than some of the other traditional technique available.
Due to the gentle approach used to apply the Equi-Bow technique, horses tend to be receptive and engage physically and emotionally with the practitioner. Our students often comment on the connection they feel with the horse during the learning process and are surprised by the results of their work.
Although a gentle touch technique, the long-term effects of Equi-Bow bodywork are more than skin deep. Equi-Bow practitioners regularly observe the physical response of horses to an Equi- Bow session. We get excited when we apply Equi-Bow and observe changes such as plumping of muscles, postural changes and relaxation because they indicate physiological changes in the horse’s body. Behavioural changes and activities such as yawning, chewing, slowing of respiration, blowing through nose, closing eyes, relaxation of ears, and stretching seem to indicate changes in the body`s nervous system as it transitions from sympathetic state (the fight/flight response) towards a parasympathetic state (rest/digest response).
The body continues to repair and regenerate itself on a cellular level every minute of every day. When tissue is asymmetrical, damaged, overworked, strained or unbalanced, the body must work harder to compensate and repair that tissue in an attempt to bring the body back to balance.
It is a fascinating experience to watch the horse change physically and behaviourally as restrictions and discomfort release and the body rebalances itself physiologically. Since Equi- Bow moves interconnect with each other, the entire body is stimulated to rebalance, increasing cellular activity and circulation while encouraging the body to self-heal.
