What I can offer you!
Our animal & equine assisted learning program is built on the foundation of healing partnerships between humans, horses and bunnies. We provide a caring and supportive environment in the company of our animals and blend CranioSacral Therapy compassionately meeting the “hearts” of our clients.
The Naturally Nurtured Program teaches skills about personal wellness and healthy social/emotional interactions. Self-care techniques such as relaxation breathing and positive self-esteem activities are practiced and refined during the activities and interactions with the animals. Stories and crafts are also important tools used. The program is being brought into grade four classrooms as part of their Health Curriculum.
The bunnies and I travel (depending on distance) to facilities. The equine program is located at Naturally Nurtured.
In the sacred space of our round pen, our horses offer their insight and presence to your Craniosacral therapy session. Techniques from the Naturally Nurtured program may be integrated through Equine-Assisted activities. Please note that all interactions with our horses are done from the ground through groundwork exercises.
CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle touch approach to allow the body to release tensions and relax for self-correction. By freeing the central nervous system to perform its best, CST naturally eliminates pain and stress, strengthens your resistance to disease, and enhances your health and well-being.
SomatoEmotional Release is the expression of emotion that, for some reason the body’s nonconscious felt necessary to hold onto, become suppressed and isolated within the “soma”. Soma means the Somatic Psyche. It is suggested that specific body parts and body tissues have the ability to retain the memories of experienced trauma. Supported in the company and presence of our animals, the S.E.R. process is initiated by hands-on communication or CranioSacral Therapy techniques.
A wonderful way to relax, release stress and care for your body is through your feet! In Reflexology, pressure is applied to reflex points on the feet, helping to increase blood circulation which encourages the body to release toxins and rebalance.
The same principles of CST are honored and applied whether to human or horse. We recognize that horses are sentient beings and have their own adventures and experiences through out their lives. CST can have a profound calming and rebalancing effect on the state of the equine ( or any other animal, two or four-legged) nervous system.
We bring the hoops to YOU! Why hoop? It’s super fun and oh so good for you at any age! The benefits of hooping include low impact physical activity, creative play and expression and peace of mind.
