Masterson Method® Equine Specialist Sessions
Give to the Equine and Receive Benefits in Return
What is Masterson Method®?
Masterson Method® of equine bodywork - founded by Jim Masterson. Per Jim it is an interactive method of bodywork in which I:
1) Recognize and use the horse's response to my touch, so we can:
2) Find and release accumulated tension in key junctions of the body.
Accumulated tension restricts movement and can affect the horse's comfort, performance, and behavior. This method let's the horse actively participate in the process of releasing tension. It is done with the horse rather than to the horse. In fact it will not work if the horse does not participate! These techniques also increase the communication and connection between us and our horse.
This type of bodywork can be used to help the horses in equine assisted services as described above. It can also be used with my human clients and offered to other equine assisted services. When a person works with a horse and a Masterson Method® Equine Specialist the intention is for them to give to the horse, it is not about them. But - this has many therapeutic benefits for the person as well: the chance to relax, destress, and learn: improves self confidence, sense of personal empowerment, and pride: is a chance to give selflessly to another living being and to feel unconditional love: improves focus and provides the opportunity to "be present" and in the moment, as the horse is; is a chance to experience mindfulness based on the horse-human interaction; promotes feelings of calmness and connection between the horse and person; being with a horse lowers cortisol levels which reduces anxiety: and so much more. Horses heal us and doing a session with them and a Masterson Method® Equine Specialist returns the favor to them. And horse's are fun! The size of my Miniature Horse's make them less intimidating than the "big" horses.
