So what can you expect from a typical healing session?
When working with a horse, it is helpful for me to begin by getting some information about the them and the environment in which they live. It can be helpful to see them in their stable, or in the yard, and for you to put a headcollar on them and to loosely hold the rope while I work. It is best for them not to be eating during the session, however it is good to have some fresh water within reach. Healing works best when the body’s cells are well hydrated as this allows the energy to flow most effectively. Animals are in tune with this need and will often drink during a session.
This therapy works holistically, treating the whole animal rather than focusing on any particular symptom. It is completely natural and non-invasive, offering a sense of calm and deep relaxation.
(I also have a powerpoint presentation explaining more about how energy healing works.)
After the session
After having healing it is advisable, where possible, for the horse to take it easy for the rest of the day – no long hacks or strenuous work schedule.
It can take up to 48 hours for the effects to fully work through their system.
The cleansing process
After having a treatment the horse may go through a cleansing and rebalancing process. This can result in them feeling a little ‘under the weather’. This is due to previously stored toxins and tensions being released and eliminated as the body adjusts to the new energy.
Senior / ill horses
One area in which healing is especially helpful is when an animal is getting older, or has become terminally ill. Healing can support you and your animal through this time, helping you to share a special closeness and to make the most of the time you have together; through this challenging period, and beyond. Please feel free to download my brochure on bereavement and loss.
Next week I’ll share a case study of a lovely little mare that I worked with.

* Healing is a very good complementary therapy and is beneficial in any situation, however you should always seek veterinary advice if your animal is unwell in any way.
