The course incorporates stretches and mobilisations to loosen tight muscles and joints; helping to improve / maintain range of movement and prevent injury. Students work through a range of techniques covering cranial work, cervicals and neck, C7/T1 junction, shoulder work, thoracolumbar mobilisations, pelvis, tail and limb stretches and mobilisations. Utilising these techniques can enhance your assessment techniques as well as helping to make clear differences in equine performance, straightness and athletic ability. They can enhance any equine practice.
The day starts with a section on the current theory and practical application of trigger point work, positional release and Muscle Energy Techniques, and how to integrate the behaviour led approaches into your current methods for longer lasting and better results with less effort.
The day is a practical day, with tutored hands on experience throughout. Students also receive a comprehensive manual to aid their home practice.
