This is an AMAZING experience! It is also powerful to watch. I am often in the arena when the bodyworkers are treating retreat participants and I have felt my spine adjust by simply standing next to the horses while they attend to the clients. They are truly energy healers. They often go to a client who has a similar body pain or body experience as they do themselves. The horses also address the issues they are stars at. For instance, Chunky is superb at dealing with trust issues and will often be at the massage table when trust is part of why the body is holding tension. The imagery is also incredibly supportive. One retreat participant shared that she will always remember Vienna standing at her head, holding space and contributing to the treatment. Etched in her mind is the image of strong, powerful Vienna standing protectively over her. What an awesome image to use as a form of coping. It doesn’t get better than this!
