Hey friends. Today I am working on a gelding that is recovering from a severe chemical reaction. His entire back was severely burned so he wasn’t able to go for turn out and was stall bound for several months.
Needless to say, he was a little restless but I think we got some beneficial releases in for him. I have previously worked on him with the 24 stress points.
This was my first time using CranioSacral Therapy on him. Previously, he would be very stoic with the Stress Points and his only sign of release was flatulence so I was curious to see how he would respond to CST.
I noticed he had a big release when working on the hyoid. The hyoid supports the tongue, forelimbs and poll and plays a role in balance. It’s interesting to note that every muscle in the horse’s body connects to the hyoid. He had a pretty big swallow with the hyoid release.
Common signs of dysfunction are inability to perform lateral motion, a hollow back or shortened stride, or a decreased range of motion in the cervical spine.
I currently service the greater Sarasota and Bradenton Areas.
