Healing for horses

How can healing benefit my horse?Lisa healing horse

Healing is a relaxing, non-invasive complementary therapy that assists with the healing of physical illness or injury. Healing can reduce inflammation, boost immune function, accelerate wound healing and stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes. It complements veterinary treatment and has no negative side effects.

Healing is also beneficial for horses experiencing emotional problems. If horses are experiencing emotional distress such as fear, frustration or anxiety it is often reflected in their behaviour. This can result in a drop in performance, a general lack of co-operation or lead to the development of unwanted behaviours such as aggression, barging or stable ‘vices’. Healing helps in such cases as it addresses the underlying emotion behind the behaviour. It can help reduce anxiety and increase trust in nervous or shut down horses and increase cooperation in horses that are considered bolshy or aggressive. Healing can also benefit horses settling into a new home or routine, help them release negative energy from previous traumatic experiences and increase confidence.

Healing can be particularly beneficial when used in conjunction with a behaviour modification program as it helps open up the lines of communication between horse and carer and encourages mutual respect and understanding.

As every horse is an individual, every healing session is tailored to their individual needs. I believe passionately that healing should be accessible to all and when I work I use my knowledge and experience of animal behaviour to ensure the horse and their carer gain the maximum benefit from my sessions.

Healing is a complementary therapy that complements conventional medicine and should not be used as an alternative to conventional medicine. Under the terms of the Veterinary Surgeons Act (1966) it is a requirement that Veterinary approval is attained before an animal can receive healing.
