Equine Body Worker Certification

  • Oct 05 - Oct 22
  • Location: The Sea Ranch, CA, USA

North Coast, The Sea Ranch, CA. The Equinology® Approach was developed by Debranne Pattillo, MEEBW, founder of Equinology Inc. and co-founder of the International Equine Body Worker Association. She has used this approach successfully for her own client base for over 25 years, and has shared it with thousands of students, many of them already equine professionals, all over the world. This unique hands-on system addresses the whole body, implementing specific manual palpation methods to assess soft tissue and symmetry of muscle and structure, and utilizing detailed static and dynamic evaluation to inform the practitioner. Different bodywork techniques — including sports massage, soft tissue mobilization, stretching, range of motion and positioning exercises, as well as “focal” point work (stress and trigger points) — are combined to provide optimal support for horses working in every discipline. Reflecting Debranne's passion for academic precision with regard to equine musculoskeletal anatomy, the Equinology® Approach stands out because it is comprehensively anatomically referenced. The Equinology® Approach continues to evolve from Debranne’s extensive experience and ongoing learning from her colleagues and mentors — both human and equine.
