Penny Nisbet MCSP RCST :: Chartered Physiotherapist | Registered Craniosacral Therapist
Equine Craniosacral Therapy
 

Penny is qualified and fully insured to administer equine craniosacral therapy and can be consulted regarding other companion animals such as dogs and cats.

N.B: It must be noted that permission from a veterinary surgeon is a pre-requisite for craniosacral therapy for animals


Equine craniosacral therapy involves working with the whole body. The approach may be used to enhance well-being and vitality and may aid horses in almost any condition.

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is recommended for your horse after competing, in order to relieve any post-competition stress.

CST can also be helpful up to 24 hours prior to competition, when it can help to optimise performance.

  Craniosacral Therapy for Horses
Horses do appear to enjoy the experience.    

Penny would be happy to consult with your horse’s vet both before and during a course of treatment. Yard visits can be arranged by prior appointment.

The owner is usually present at the session.

A session begins with horse and owner relaxed and settled.

The craniosacral therapist is playing the part of an observer – looking after his/her own safety; watching the horse’s reactions; keeping balanced, focused and grounded.

Contact of any kind by the therapist is negotiated with the horse – respecting its needs - and is usually very light and brief in duration.

The horse is allowed to move around if it wishes and often benefits from a short period of rest.

The craniosacral therapist is aiming in a treatment session to enable the horse to reach a better state of balance in its whole form. No diagnosis is made – this is the realm of the veterinary surgeon.

This workshop was designed to introduce the concept of Equine Craniosacral Therapy to those who have completed a diploma in craniosacral therapy and have fulfilled the requirements to become Registered Craniosacral Therapists.......    To read more, please CLICK HERE
