Manual physical therapy is a specialized form of physical therapy delivered with a hands-on approach as opposed to a device or machine. In manual therapy, I use my hands to put pressure on muscle tissue and manipulate joints in an attempt decrease back pain caused by muscle spasms, muscle tension and joint dysfunction.
After completing my studies in Finland I became a qualified Physiotherapist. Working in Finland, Germany and Switzerland I gained a multitude of experience. I decided to start my own practice in Switzerland, and built up a team of 5 employees to meet the high demands. During this time I was able to expand my knowledge in healing treatments by studying various therapy concepts.
Here is a short summary of my major post-graduate studies
Acupoint-Massage according to Penzel for humans and horses
Equine Facilitated Learning (ongoing study)
Since May 2011 I have been living up on a hill in beautiful British Columbia with my family. (husband, two kids, dogs, cats, horses, rabbit and some visiting bears...)
For many years I have had so much pain in my hips that I have had to use many heavy duty pain killers to cope. I have had bone scans, etc. but no reason or solution has come to light to explain why I hurt so much. Most nights I would be woken up by 4 am in intense pain, and would have to take more T3's to get back to sleep.
When I got home from attending your retreat 'Experience Healing with Horses', I realized I had no pain in my hips, absolutely none! And believe it or not, I have had no pain in my hips since that weekend retreat, and have not had to take any T3's for the hip pain since.
A huge thank you to your beautiful horses for their amazing
gift, and to you for the great weekend.
Happiness is not so much
in having as sharing.
We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.
