It is important to repeat that First and foremost
the Equine Touch is not a 'therapy' under the definition by law which sates that 'Therapy' is defined as being the
treatment to heal a specific medical problem by means other than surgical intervention. Similarly a 'therapist' is
a person who tries to fix a specific problem usually under the direction or control of a licensed medical practitioner. The
Equine Touch is quite simply a discipline, a set of pre ordained procedures that the student or practitioner applies to the
horse no matter what problem the equine presents at the time. The fact that the equine is able to deal with long standing
problems after a session of ET and that there is undeniably a remedial and therapeutic effect, wherein the horse is, as a
result of its own innate healing system, freely able to process and ultimately dissolve unwanted structures while in the balanced
state of homeostasis.
While having the unique ability to stand on its own as a positive corrective system at all levels, one
of the most valuable assets of the Equine Touch is its total compatibility to work in a complementary and harmonious synergy
with many recognized equine healing modalities including alopathic, acupuncture, homeopathy, herbs, Bach flower remedies,
aromatherapy oils and chiropractic. The Equine Touch is not only compatible with equine therapies but with all types of equine
address such as trimming, shoeing, saddle fitting and correction, balanced riding, training, rehabilitation and nutrition,
all essential elements in creating and maintaining stability and health in any horse.
