What are clients saying about the Equi-Bow technique?
Here is the experience of one of our students after completing Unit One....
Equi-Bow for horses & bowen therapy for humans came to me after I experienced phenomenal results on both myself, and one of my own horses. I was fascinated from the beginning. While I was unable to put into words how it worked, I knew from the results that it was doing something incredible. The seed was planted and I was hooked. I began Equi-Bow Unit One in the fall of 2012. I left excited and ready to start practicing!
I teach lessons at Railside View Equestrian Centre in Dutton, Ontario. After the course I was seeing things everywhere that I hadn’t noted before- posture, body carriage, imbalances and stiffness at which we normally would not bat an eye.
The parents of one of my students asked if I would work on their pony, and I jumped at the chance. Trixie is a 20 year old Welsh pony cross. With age comes all sorts of various issues, but Trixie’s biggest issues were behavioral. She was an abuse case and had spent much of her life in fear of people. She did not invite or welcome touch, she would flinch at the smallest movements and particularly did not like her legs handled. When she had originally arrived she had scars and welts below her fetlocks from what we could only assume was from a long period of time wearing kicking chains.
Her owner, Jennifer Prior, did not know much about Equi-Bow and did not know what to expect. She was searching for a connection with her pony, and wanted to make sure that her pony’s behavioral issues were not driven by underlying pain. Five minutes into the session, she was moved nearly to tears! She was watching her pony, who would normally cower from you, lean into the moves, presenting different parts of her body to me and truly inviting my touch. She moved rapidly from her normal sympathetic state (fight/flight response) to a parasympathetic (rest/digest) that we had never seen her in before. Cats were sitting underneath her, dogs were running past, and she did not flinch once. She allowed me to do all the moves- including ones that had me wrap my hands around her hind legs, which previously would have resulted in her kicking out at you.
For days afterwards Jennifer couldn’t stop talking about what she had seen. It had changed her and it had moved her. That is the magic of Equi-Bow. Not everyone experiences that initial “Equi-Bow miracle” but there is change every time. You just need to open your eyes to it. Watch for the postural changes, the processing of the horse- yawning, licking, stretching, the list can go on and on.
For me, it has changed everything. It has changed the way I look at and connect with my equine friends.
The Equi-Bow program is no longer something I would just merely like to do. It is something that I feel I have to do. I have to be able to continue to share this gift with other horse owners. I want to continue to help open horse owner’s eyes to a different way of connecting with their horses and help them find what they have been searching for. Most importantly, I need to be able to help the horses and give a gift of free movement, a life without pain, and a life without fear.
