Kinesiology includes a number of massage and touch techniques; some of which Jo has incorporated into her therapy work with horses and dogs in conjunction with their behavioural responses.
Kinesiology balancing for riders and animal handlers can help with posture, co-ordination, body awareness, sense of feel, maintaining focus, clearing fears, achieving goals, injury repair and easing or elimination of pain. Kinesiology can therefore empower people to work with confidence in improving their animals’ performance and behaviour.
Jo also also uses Kinesiology energy balancing techniques via a handler to help with animal behavioural issues. This works especially well with horses and dogs as they are so reflective with their behaviour and body language.
Helping the animal:
Jo has incorporated Kinesiology touch and reflective behavioural techniques in to her work to help a wide range of issues, such as: muscle and joint stiffness, injury re-habilitation, behavioural problems, anxiety, over sensitivity, performance problems and more. Jo always ensures that she works with veterinary approval.
Kinesiology is taught as a therapy for humans, and anyone can learn it. Touch for Health Kinesiology provides an excellent foundation in the subject, and can be taken to practitioner level. Please contact Jo via the enquiries page for information on Touch for Health courses.
Kinesiology for animals: In compliance with veterinary legislation, there is no training available to become an ‘animal Kinesiologist’. However, the manipulation and touch aspects of Kinesiology can be used on animals under veterinary legislation, and within the realms of the animal therapist’s qualifications and insurance. For example, an animal massage therapist may find Kinesiology massage techniques beneficial in their work.
