Do you know your horse’s head could hold the key to his/her wellness Equine craniosacral is one of the only therapies that addresses the whole body, but uniquely including the head or cranium of the horse – which, when out of balance, affects the whole body. Any horse can benefit from Craniosacral work because all horses experience regular pressures to the cranium throughout their lives. Pressures on the skull affect bone growth and position and contribute to compensation patterns in muscles of the TMJ, its function and mastication patterns, which influence the overall biomechanics of the horse. Retaining or reinstating the integrity of skeletal and muscular systems is vital for any horse, especially the equine athlete, for health, longevity, comfort, wellbeing, and performance!
