Equine Muscle Release Therapy™
Transform your horse with this gentle but highly effective hands-on therapy!
EMRT™ is based on a successful human therapy, which was developed in Australia, known as the Bowen Technique.
This technique was developed by the brilliant, late Tom Bowen and then astutely adapted to benefit horses and small animals by Alison Goward in Australia.
An EMRT™ treatment involves a series of gentle, non-invasive, rolling moves made at key points on the horse's body. The sequence of moves creates a circuit within the body, which can free congestion and enhance circulatory and neural transmission throughout the body. EMRT™ is designed to put the body back in balance allowing the horse to achieve optimum health. Regular EMRT™ treatments could prevent imbalance from happening in the first place.
Resolve problems, improve your horse's way of going and help your horse become happier.
These are just some of the issues EMRT practitioners can help with:
How EMRT™ and CCmrt™ Work
EMRT™ and CCmrt™ is the ORIGINAL PURE form of Animal Bowen which is now being used with working dogs, companion animals and in rescue centres across the world. It is a simple, effective way to treat many symptoms and injuries that an animal may sustain in its life. It does not replace veterinary treatment but is ideal to use alongside it for many musculo-skeletal, neurological and body system functional problems. It can also be invaluable in post operative care, rehabilitation, stress and behavioural situations.
The technique consists of a sequence of very gentle rolling moves over key points on the musculature and fascia (many alongside the spine and over acupuncture points). CCMRT does not treat conditions or diseases. It treats the body as a WHOLE no matter what the diagnosis or symptoms, bringing the body and mind back into BALANCE and HOMEOSTASIS.
EMRT™ and CCmrt™ are defined as non-diagnostic, non-invasive, non-manipulative hands-on systems of bodywork addressing the whole animal with an organized series of unique, gentle, rolling moves over soft tissue. It is extremely gentle and dynamically effective requiring no harsh manipulation, machines or drugs to work. It works on the Central Nervous System and on connective tissue called Fascia.
Fascia is a thin membrane covering and connecting every tissue or system in the body and is normally loose, moist, supple and elastic enabling movement between body parts. Stress on Muscles, Tendons and Ligaments can develop from injury and trauma. Dogs and Cats are very athletic and can often injure themselves running, jumping, twisting and leaping in the air or over obstacles. Initial postural imbalances are often missed.
When muscles, joints and tissues are under stress from previous injury, compensation or trauma it causes incorrect alignment of muscles and bones resulting in restricted movement and reduced efficiency in all the surrounding tissues. The muscles tighten to protect the body, the surrounding fascia produces tough, inelastic fibres creating more stiffness, pain and restriction.
Compensation patterns begin to develop as the body holds itself differently to avoid pain. The muscles can pull the skeleton out of line. These restrictions cause reduced blood, nutrient, oxygen, toxin and lymphatic flow which contributes greatly to susceptibility to injury a, lameness, mal-function, immune system irregularities and even disease. The production of the enzyme required for normal healing of tissues is often reduced. By this time the animal is showing greater signs of pain, gait and behavioural problems and sometimes internal discomfort.
CCMRT™ does not treat any particular condition or disease but it has been found to be very effective in:
EMRT™ and CCmrt™ are not intended to replace veterinary medical service or advice and permission should be sought from your veterinary surgeon before commencing with a treatment.
