Advanced Equine Osteopathic Techniques 3

Tom Mayes ~ IET ~ Visceral Manipulation

Students will focus on becoming proficient at resetting diaphragm spasms, organ dysfunctions, urogenital system, and lumbar pelvis constrictions.

Diaphragm spasms are common and often the primary cause of debilitating symptoms that are difficult to resolve without therapeutic intervention. Symptoms like physical lameness, metabolic, and emotional indications are caused by diaphragm spasms and are also cleared when treating the diaphragm. Students will focus on visceral manipulation techniques, lumbar torsions, subluxations, and resetting pelvic and sacral dysfunctions. Clearing soft tissues, joint dysfunctions via vascular, neural, lymphatic, and manipulations will be addressed.

Advanced Osteopathy 3 (EQOSTEO3) Course is the third course in the Advanced Osteopathy Certification Program. Each Osteopath Course builds on the previous course and it is important to take each course in order. Students interested in becoming certified in the Integrated Equine Therapies Advanced Osteopathy will need to complete all 4 courses and enroll in the Certification Program.

These courses are suitable for the advanced equine professionals; equine therapist, veterinarians, horse trainers and owners. Techniques taught in this clinic will increase your skill set and enhance your effectiveness.
