“Is Your Horse 100%”

This is a book that goes beyond the anatomical importance of the connective tissue system in horses…it addresses the holistic need of the horse to be understood and respected. It gives insight into the way fascial tension affects the behavior and performance of horses and how relief for the fascial system provides horses with much more than alleviation of pain. This book should be in the library of all horse owners. Madalyn Ward, DVM


“My farrier could not believe the difference in Weismann and Aurora. W had the same hoof on the left as on the right… he just couldn’t imagine that W (well, and A ) could look so different from seven weeks ago. He is now a huge believer in this work…. Have been riding him twice a week now and that is going well… Such a rock star. ” Lauri

What if I told you that with patient, conscientious placement of your hands on specific areas of the horse’s body, you can bring about profound change in his physical and mental well-being? Want to know the secret? The internet-like web of fascia beneath the skin. Continue reading…


“Looking to medicine, rehabilitation, exercise and ineffective gimmicks & gadgets for the solution has been ineffective for so many people,” Sue Hitzmann, The Melt Method.

“The fascia system is responsible for misalignment, imbalance, chronic pain and disfomfort.”

“Unlike muscle, Fascia doesn’t receive input from the brain or nervous system to adapt to our movement. Fascia works independently to organize, stabilize and protect the body for its movement. When there’s pain, the Fascia system has to be treated as a whole.”


100% HEALING: The missing link is Fascia:  

The above and below photos are from Architecture of Human Living Fascia by Jean-Claude Guimberteau, MD. The fascia image was captured using digital endoscope to record what was happening to his surgical patients’ tissue as he worked through and around it. Fascia’s vital importance to body health is hidden from the public. “The videotaped sequences leave no doubt. Any gesture of manual therapy has an impact at the cellular level.” Dr. Guimberteau told Karrie Osborn while working on an article for Sept/Oct 2016 issue of Massage and Bodywork. 

Myofascial Release (Fascia is also called myofascia or connective tissue) is a Structural Integration therapy which resolves problems that drugs, surgery, lazer lights and acupuncture can’t change. Fascia holds emotional trauma charge. Fascia is the filmy white tissue that surrounds the body parts and organizes them, along with the blood vessels and lymphatic system. It connects everything. Look beyond Pharma’s denial of Fascia and it’s importance to health and fitness. The infamous Flexner Report in 1910 blocked diverse therapies. This document produced by an AMA committee outlawed homeopathy and  many herbal treatments. Ida Rolf in Germany pioneered the re-discovery of Fascia with her revolutionary Rolfing. She broke through the modern legal barriers to bring Fascia back into public health practice. Heller Work, an evolution of rolfing, went further and developed work for animals. 



The  Conformation Balancing Story 


Through a horse show, I met Heller worker Steve Evans. His STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION fascia sessions profoundly began  restoration of my lost fitness that when he suggested I learn Equine Natural Movement with Joseph Freeman–this is Heller fascia work for horses— I decided to try it This hobby turned into a vocation. Since horses need solutions promptly, I developed a visual method to find the problems quickly. We saw the horses change and followed his body for progress. Not diagnostics, we follow the fascia itself. The horse leads the way with his response.

Since the horse is a master compensator, it’s easy to get lost in the maze of compensations. Digital photos show the truth of the horse’s body. “Is Your Horse 100%?”  published in April, 2017 by Trafalgar Square Books. Talented  editor/publisher: Caroline Robbins and Martha Cook,  and designer Rebecca Didier were the team putting it together.  The book is written and designed for easy use and successfully de-mystifies an amazingly complex tissue for consistent, steady results in your horse’s fitness.



“I’ve just finished reading your book and first I want to thank you for writing it. I loved it!!! I’ve had Reiki healing for many years, reading your book added so much to me. It was finding the missing piece. I feel more complete, strong and self assured in my bodywork. Also my horses who are used to my hands on have had many and long still points and strong releases. It will be an adventure to follow them in future changes.”  Kia, Sweden

I’m a visual learner, not a reader….I like the DVD for learning how to do this. The mouth work is easy to follow. For me, the DVD works best. I was able to help my mare a lot with her head problems. Thank you! Amy

Had a really good ride this morning. He’s not the same horse as he was before you started working on him at all! Can finally get some collection in canter. He’s not flying around all strung out. His left lead is tons better. I think there’s more to be done, wow, what a difference! Cindy W
