Visionary Craniosacral Therapy for Horses

   Wisdom from the Heart and the Herd

What is craniosacral therapy?

This powerful, gentle work restores balance in the craniosacral system which effects all systems of the body. Using a delicate palpation, this work re-balances the body, mind and spirit of the being.

The Equine Program…

This 7 level certification program takes you through the entire body section by section so you will obtain a deep and thorough understanding of the horse from a craniosacral perspective. We’ll explore the horse-human  relationship from a unique view through visionary craniosacral work. Visionary cst weaves shamanic technology with traditional cst methods. This allows us to see what is actually happening with the horse physically and emotionally in that moment and locate primary issues effecting behavior and performance. We’ll work with horses for direct experience and a deeper understanding. We’ll explore the horse as our master teacher, the speech of nature, the art of listening in expanded awareness, focus, sourcing, and the interface in relationships. The intro course is 4 days and advanced courses: levels 2-7, are 3 days and build on each other so must be taken in sequence. Guest speakers will join us periodically to discuss their area of expertise including: rehabilitation, massage, oils, and herbs.
