Tuning In: Equine Craniosacral Therapy and Somato-Emotional Release is an insightful, practical guide and reference handbook of principles, theories and techniques for Equine Craniosacral Therapy (ECST). Therapists who have horse exposure and experience will quickly resonate with the unfolding process of ECST. Horse owners and interested people will develop a broader perspective from which to be with and work with their horses and other animals.
Using Four Guiding Principles and a Ten-Step Protocol, Ms. Tune deftly explains the process she uses to tune in with her animal clients. The process is illustrated at every step with photographs.
However, techniques are just the beginning of bodywork. The foundation on which the work rests is learning to understand and integrate the philosophies as well as develop one's instincts. In her session notes and case histories, Ms. Tune reveals how observation and listening play a key role in her work.
"To develop our ability to observe we need to enhance our ability to listen with all of our senses and both hemispheres of the brain.* We need to watch using labels and simply absorb information from the horse. Labels are names that traditional medical science puts on specific conditions for identification purposes. This is helpful in allopathic modes of treatment. What I would like to suggest is that we use them as guides, not law. Combining labels with deductive logic and intuition provides a much broader perspective. It allows us to honor the law of physics that all things change."
Tuning In: Equine Craniosacral Therapy and Somato-Emotional Release is an unfolding story which integrates intuition with concrete knowledge.
