When I decided it was time to stop mucking about and start learning how to help horses, it was not long after that I realized there are an overwhelming amount of modalities available to learn. There is massage of various types, cranio-sacral therapy, acupressure, kinesiology taping, trigger point therapy, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF), Reiki, stretching, saddle fitting, hoof trimming, aromatherapy, cold laser therapy, red light therapy, nutrition, Masterson Method, the list could go on.
It can be challenging to decide which direction to go in. There are a lot of things to consider like, what will benefit the horse most, what can I afford, do I have to travel somewhere or can I learn online, if I can learn online am I really going to become competent? I want to be beneficial to every horse I lay hands on so, I don't take these decisions lightly.
And that brings me to the title of this blog.
This is the next modality I have chosen to add to my skillset and I am sure it is one of the best decisions I've ever made! Eva Servais has already proven to be an excellent teacher and I can not recommend her programs enough!
Photonic Therapy, what the heck is that, you might be asking? Well, I just started learning about it myself so, I'm by no means an expert yet, but, it is essentially the use of a specifically tuned red light pen applied locally for pain reduction and on acupuncture points to stimulate the body's healing responses for virtually any ailment. It is designed to be applied post diagnostically, when you know exactly what the problem is as diagnosed by a veterinarian. It is also utilized as a preventive tool to, well, prevent any of the many ailments horses can experience when they become out of balance.
It's all about balance, people!
I am in love with learning this new modality! It is going to change my entire life and every horse I come into contact with from now on!!
If you're in the Paonia, CO area, I'll be looking for horses to practice on for the next few months every other day. If that interests you and you can commit to the schedule, you might want to jump at the chance now to get some free APT for your horse!
