What is health? It can be defined as the condition of being sound in body, mind, and spirit; especially having freedom from physical disease or pain. Overall, this occurs when the immune system is strong and all of the organs and cells in the body are functioning correctly. However, there is also an underlying level of health that in general is overlooked and, when out of balance, has a direct effect on your horse's health. This is the core energy that supplies all of the horse's body systems with nourishment at the cellular level.
This energy can be affected by stressful situations or circumstances your horse experiences daily or have experienced in the past, such as:
- The environment they live or work in
- Getting fed unnatural substances
- Having a poor diet (including lack of certain minerals, supplements or forage and too much processed feed)
- Lack of adequate exercise
- Bullying by other horses
- Being stabled
- Misunderstandings during training
- Dealing with any form of shock
How can we help our horses stay healthy in all aspects of their being?
Energy healing is a great solution! Reiki is a common medium for providing energy healing to horses and humans. Along with providing Reiki, practitioners at Whispering Equine also incorporate various aspects of vibrational remedies to aid in the overall healing experience for the horse and it’s owner if possible. These remedies could include aromatherapy, crystal healing, sound therapy, and essences of flowers and gems.
