“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

100% HEALING: The missing link is Fascia:
The above photos are from “Architecture of Human Living Fascia” by Jean-Claude Guimberteau, MD. The fascia images were 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, resolving problems that drugs, surgery, lazer lights and acupuncture can’t change. Fascia holds emotional trauma charge. Fascia is the filmy white tissue that surrounds & organizes the body parts, including the blood vessels and lymphatic system. It connects everything. Look beyond Pharma’s denial of Fascia to see for yourself how important it is to health and fitness.
The infamous Flexner Report in 1910, funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, blocked diverse therapies. This document produced by an AMA committee outlawed homeopathy, alternative and 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, founded by Joseph Heller, an evolution of rolfing, went further and developed work for animals.
“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.”
THE CONFORMATION BALANCING STORY:
Through a horse show, I met Heller worker Steve Evans. His myofascial release/structural integration sessions profoundly began restoration of my lost fitness. He suggested I learn Equine Natural Movement with Joseph Freeman–this is Heller fascia work for horses— 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 the body for progress. Not diagnostics, we follow the fascia itself. The horse leads the way with his response. We work on the horse’s terms.
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 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.
“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
“…The work I’ve been doing from your book for just for a few weeks has produced more results than back injections & professional training has accomplished in several years, so thank you so much for sharing your experiences with the rest of us!
I’m almost 74 but the bonding, his new relaxed demeanor and movement make me want to ride him again! I’ve ordered your DVD to make sure I haven’t missed anything!
Thank you again & again…Donna, TX
