Equine Breathing      World wide

Click here for Equine Breathings website .

Equine Breathing is a new holistic method that enables horse owners to help their horse recover from chronic ailments (such as Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease, COPD where the horse has difficulty breathing) and behavioural problems (such as headshaking), and to increase fitness and performance. Anyone can do Equine Breathing using free instructions available on Clare’s website above.  It is soothing and relaxing and horses enjoy it.

If a horse has a chronic ailment or behavioural problem, then it will be over breathing (breathing too big a volume of air). Over breathing has a direct and damaging effect on the physiology and can therefore eventually manifest in symptoms.

Equine Breathing is not a veterinary technique or even a therapy, it is simply a training method that owners can use to bring their horse’s breathing back towards normal. As the horse’s breathing improves, the physiology recovers and symptoms reduce.

About Michelle:  I am a qualified equine body working having qualified through Equiworks SA (Equinology), I perform sports massage on horses and I incorporate essential oils into my massage treatment, which I qualified in using by completing a  correspondence course in Equine aromatherapy by Catherine Bird.

I have been practicing in this field for over 6 years now, with much success. I have a true passion for horses and nothing makes me happier than seeing horses I have worked on progress and truly benefit from their massage sessions with me. Like human athletes, horses also need massage sessions on a regular basis to enhance their performance and their overall feeling of well being. I feel massage is a must for every horse, I believe equine massage is not just a luxury it’s a necessity.
