She has since qualified as a Pilates instructor and works using a range of structural, functional and cranial techniques as well as giving exercise and diet prescriptions.

Through these studies and experience Keturah has attained extensive knowledge of human and animal anatomy, physiology and pathology plus a detailed understanding of Osteopathy.

She is constantly learning and increasing her knowledge in this field due to her passion for Osteopathy and the mind body and spirit connection and in working with people to empower them to heal themselves.

Equine Osteopathy

 

Equine Osteopathy is a holistic therapy which uses the movement of the body, to correct structural changes within the horse to help maintain and restore normal function. It aims to treat the tissues causing the symptoms at the same time looking for and treating the root cause of the problem.

How does it work?
The horse is checked from the feet upwards and from the nose to the tail. In many cases a horse has learnt to compensate from an old injury in the leg for example and over time this manifests itself into pain elsewhere (along the spine, for example). In such cases the area of pain and the root cause is treated.
A series of techniques are applied, including articulation of joints to mobilise the body and soft tissue work to re-educate the nervous system.

Benefits of pilates and breathing exercises for riders:
Unevenness when riding a horse can be in the horse, the rider or often a combination of both. Osteopathy combined with pilates and breathing exercises can also be used to help the balance, posture and suppleness of a horse riders body to support efficient, graceful movement in the saddle.
