The modalities available for sessions include; massage, myofacial release, crystal therapy, acupressure, cranial sacral therapy, photonic therapy, stretching, aromatherapy, kinesio-taping and range of motion. The horse will be the director of their session as Tina assesses the tissue and decides on a course of action.

On your horses’ soft tissue session Tina will do an assessment of your horse. Each horse owner is left with an individualized program of stretching and exercise therapy that is specific to the needs found during the body work session. This way the owner is empowered to keep working on the horses healing at home. - $140.00


Trainers receive a $15.00 savings on their personal horses’ sessions.


For Sessions that require Tina to travel and an overnight stay, the fee will be $160.00 per session. Travel accommodation and food expense is an additional fee that will be split between participants.


Intensive Soft Tissue Program – if you require several sessions in a row purchase the 3 session package and receive 50% off your third session. Sessions must be used within a 6 week time period, and prepaid at the time of the first session.

Equine Soft Tissue Session - with Kim Krebs EST EEBW $90 + Call out fee

Once contacted for an equine session with me, I will have you submit some paperwork to better understand your horse’s needs prior to arriving on site.  I specifically will ask about current and previous health conditions, any previous bodywork, husbandry care, current vet care and any other relevant history to your horse.  Once that is established I will have a discussion with you to determine what your goals are in having bodywork done with your horse, are you looking at a program for the year and what are your performance goals for the horse this season? 

 

When I arrive on site I will perform a static and dynamic assessment of your horse to determine what areas your horse specifically needs attention to.  I will then do a physical palpation of your horses’ tissue as well as feel the rhythm of craniosacral system to mesh what I evaluated in the static and dynamic assessments to what I feel under my hands.  The session will start depending on what the horses needs are, and I will use both massage therapy as well as craniosacral therapy as my main modalities to work on the soft tissue in order to release areas of specific concern felt in the individual horse.  Other modalities such as kinesiology tape may be used as well to help elongate effects of the massage or support tissue that I feel requires it. 

 

Each session is unique to each horse and to each time the horse is worked on.  I will finish by giving you further information specific to how the session went in order for you to continue with follow up exercises and stretches to ensure your horse gets the utmost help throughout the timeframe before your next session with me. 

 

As a student of InHand Equine Therapy mentorship program, the assessments and treatment outcomes will be shared with Tina Watkins and any additional guidance she can give will be incorporated into the treatment plan.

Postural Assessment - with Tina Watkins EEST EEBW3

Tina will do a full assessment of your horse. This includes a static and dynamic assessment. This assessment allows Tina to do a complete postural evaluation to develop the appropriate; body work, exercise, range of motion and stretching program for the individual horse. - $75

 

Movement Analysis - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

Movement analysis is an invaluable tool for a clients knowledge of what is currently happening with their horse. It allows the client to see the restrictions in the horses’ gate, and through this knowledge be able to develop a treatment and riding program that will bring the correct wellness practitioners to the horse. Dependent on how in-depth you would like your analysis and the time involved, the cost fluctuates. The full session is a two hour time slot that involves the owner in every step of the process. This will involve the owner in the horses’ assessment of asymmetries, the movement restrictions, muscle deviations, and signs of stress. This is session also comes with the videos and pictures of their horse showing the asymmetries, emailed to the owner for future reference. This will allow the owner to refer to the videos/photos in the future and see the strides the horse has made with the exercise program Tina has customize for your horse. This service has received great reviews from the test clients that participated. Bookings for those clients that require a quick overview of their horse or a follow up movement assessment, are easily accommodated. This would include the same analysis, without the client involvement portion or the video and picture email portion; cost is $75.00 - $175.00

Saddle Assessment - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

Tina will do a simple saddle assessment session fitting saddles to your horses back in the static position. This may rule out many saddles before we book the complete saddle fitting session. A saddle should never be decided on by static assessment only. The horse is the one true judge of the saddles sure fit, so a movement trial is also need to truly know that we have found the right match; $45 per session.

 

Complete Saddle Fitting - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

Tina will do a complete analysis of the horses back shape, saddle fit in static and dynamic situations, and create templates for you to use while shopping for a saddle. These templates are appropriate to send to a saddle maker that is doing a custom fit. A full saddle fitting will include watching the rider in the saddle, how the horses’ movement is changed by adding the saddles weight and if the saddle impinges on movement. Video is often used to assess in slow motion what the saddle and the rider are doing as a unit; $110 per session.

**Please note:  A call out fee will be charged to all appointments based on mileage to your barn.  This call out is split between all horses that are being worked on at the barn that day. Tina also has an indoor facility available for those who want to trailer in and not have to incur that fee.

Therapy Products
Trial Program - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

Inhand equine therapy is very pleased to announce a new initiative! 

We have partnered with Equi-products and Greenhawk to bring our clients the chance to try out the therapy products these shops offer. This will allow the client to experience the changes some of these innovative products can make to their horses. 

 

Tina is really passionate about horse health as are the team members of Greenhawk and Equi-products and we have been working on innovative ways for horse owners to be able to keep the wellness flowing in between your horses treatments. Allowing clients to try some of the therapy solutions on their horses allows the owners and trainers to have confidence in purchasing these wellness investments.

 

All horse’s respond differently to the new technology’s so to have the chance to feel the response within each horse will be a huge help. There is such a range of products out there and they all have fantastic results but without experiencing them on your individual horse it really is hard to commit to the investment.

 

Each product is rentable from the individual store for the week. The client is responsible for the product the entire time of the rental as well as bringing the product back to either Tina or the store front. The rental fee will be put towards the purchase price if you do decide to purchase the item. 

 

The foresight that both Greenhawk and Equi-products have is truly a blessing. Both of these stores are not just about selling product but about bettering the horse community one horse at a time. Both teams jumped on the chance to get products out to the horses and owners that really need them.

 

See www.equi-products.com and www.greenhawk.com for full product information.

Watch the Inhand Equine Therapy Facebook page for videos on the products and there benefits. Fees are dependent on the product chosen.

Breathe Through Your Heart Group Meditation Night - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

*For the next date Contact us for more details*

 

Come and experience a channeled group meditation night, held once a month at the Watkins farm in beautiful southern Alberta. During this event Tina will channel a guided meditation that will promote wellness, healing, joy, love, and an increase in the vibration within your spiritual, emotional, and physical being. You will receive programmed crystals to use for the evening to support your healing and essential oils will also be used to clear low vibration energy and allow you to be more present during the event. Meditation is a practice that will bring your to the centre of your being, introduce you to your higher self and allow you to shed fear and low vibration energy. By starting to go within, one can truly discover the being that they wish to be, quiet the ego, and thrive. Meditation is a non denominational practice that is recognized by all beings as the true way to understand and connect with ones soul. Once a being can start to love themselves from the inside, then that being can express that love to those around them, as well as the universe. Tina feels meditation has benefited her immensely and feels by teaching others she can help others find their souls path. 

 

The cost for group meditation night is $20.00 plus a donation to the food bank.

Crystal therapy - with Tina Watkins EESTEEBW3

Crystals and stones have been used since ancient times for their healing properties and beauty. Placing crystals and stones on ones’ body invokes a palpable feeling. The wellness properties of crystals and stones vary from creating joy to healing malfunction of tissue and ridding body of low vibration energy. Placing crystals and stones on the energy centres of the body (chakras), can help to clear these centres, restore energy balance and promote healing.

During my journey of learning about crystals and there healing properties my scientific side kicked in and wondered why and how this works. I conducted several experiments where I would weigh the crystal on a digital food scale prior to placing on the clients’ body.  Recording this weight I would then place the crystal on client and it would remain for the entire healing session. I would record each crystals weight as I took them off the client. Remarkable results are seen from this experiment. The crystal would weigh more where it was in taking low vibrating energies from the client, the client would express that pain in that area was reduced and the area physically and emotionally felt lighter. In areas where the healing qualities if the crystal were being absorbed by the client the crystal would physically weigh less.  This is remarkable to me and proof for a scientific mind that the crystals were working.

Temperature changes in crystals beyond that of the body's temperature were also noted. In areas of pain the crystal would come off the tissue hot with a noted sweat mark where crystal was placed. The horses or dogs are not able to tell you if they feel a pain reduction in words but the commonly accepted methods of autonomic nervous system release were noted. Licking, chewing, lip wiggling and passing gas, deep breathing and relaxation were all present.

Since adding crystal and stone therapy to my therapy tool kit I feel that my massage is easier to perform. The horse or dog seems to release easier and areas of soreness are less guarded. Animals, unlike humans have no placebo effect so to hear from clients that horses feel great after their session that included crystals is the pat on the back I needed to confirm that this is a valued modality to have in my practice.
