Bowen and Emmett therapies are valuable tools helping horses and their riders be free from pain and restrictions, and promoting, overall good health, soundness and symmetry.
These therapies are extremely useful before, during after exercise and competitions. On the day of a competition 'band aid' moves help to loosen and free muscles, calm nerves and improve performance. After exercise, recovery is enhanced, with heart rate rapidly reduced and the removal of lactate encouraged, resulting in little or no stiffness the next day.
Horses (and humans) generally find the treatment very relaxing and the immune system is boosted. I have seen conditions such as Sarcoids and Sweet itch improve following regular treatment.
Bowen works on connective tissue and is essentially a very effective form of fascial release. Moves are at specific points on the body which relate to Accupressure points, lymphatic drainage points and at the origin and insertions of muscles. Emmett therapy involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as “Emmett points”.The points are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy. The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. “No pain no gain” has no place in EMMETT or Bowen Technique philosophy.
I have a particular interest in Horse and Rider biomechanics, and alongside the therapy, can advise riders on how to keep themselves and their horses sounder for longer. My interest has led me to taking training with many different biomechanics experts over the years and I also have a coaching qualification.
I travel out to individual clients horses and can offer reduced rates for multiple bookings at the same yard.Rider treatments may be performed fully clothed and seated ( including on the horse!) or standing as required. Two treatments, initially, are recommended around a week apart, with advice given as to possible further appointments needed, at the second one. Often two treatments is enough with a six monthly 'top-up' advised, particularly for working animals.
