An inherent ability acknowledged early in childhood and refined and further developed over many years enables a greater degree of listening to the horse.

The healing connection between myself and the horse is intuitive, gentle and accomplished. Insight and understanding through the healing act with communication may occur naturally in the Osteopathic treatment, according to the needs of the horse and its presenting symptoms. Guided by this process, my hands may gently come to rest over specific areas until the healing is completed.

Healing can facilitate emotional as well as physical well-being. Healing when offered with Equine and Animal Osteopathic treatment principles, often enables the animal to relax more deeply and deepens the working relationship I may have with your horse; further optimising the efficacy of the principles and practice of Osteopathy.

Ethical considerations:

Osteopathy should not be used as a substitute for veterinary care and attention.

Please note that paragraph 19, Section 3 of the Veterinary Surgeons Act and the Animal Welfare Act and the RCVS Guide to Professional Conduct states that all animals must be seen by a veterinary surgeon and that the veterinary surgeon must be content for Osteopathy to be given.

With any concerns you may have about an animal’s health or well-being, your first port of call must be a veterinarian. Only a vet may make a diagnosis or prescribe.

Regarding Homoeopathy:

Please note that an owner may provide Homoeopathy for the animal in their care.

A veterinary surgeon may provide Homoeopathy. Under UK law it is illegal for a Registered Homoeopath who is not a veterinary surgeon to prescribe Homoeopathy for an animal.

Healing – definition: channelling healing energy through the hands from a universal source of energy. Healing should not be a substitute for veterinary care and attention.
