Do you know your horse’s head could hold the key to his/her wellness Equine Craniosacral is one of the only therapies that addresses the whole body, but uniquely including the head or cranium of the horse – which, when out of balance, affects the whole body. Any horse can benefit from Craniosacral work because all horses experience regular pressures to the cranium throughout their lives.
