How our combined therapy works
Horses Healing Hearts combines the effectiveness of two distinct therapies into one powerful force that can change your life … or the life of a loved one … for the better.
EAGALA1 is different from traditional therapy in that it is, “About the relationship between the horses and the clients, not the relationship between me facilitators and the clients. The facilitators are there to provide the opportunity and bring consciousness to the session being learned.”
That’s why we use horses in this treatment, it is how the horses parallel your life which as no judgement or non-threatening and yet delivers the outcomes that are appropriate for you.
Mindfulness is the process of bringing your attention to what is happening right now. It’s about putting other thoughts, cares, fears and memories aside and slowing down our active minds to feel what is happening right now here with nature and with the horses.
EAGALA Equine Assisted Therapy or Equine Assisted Learning
Equine Therapy is a therapy that involves interaction between you and horses.
Horses are used because they are animals that are super-sensitive to people and the environment. They are so intuitive that they can tell how you feel within moments of meeting you and they don’t judge you for those feelings.
Studies have shown that EAGALA equine assisted therapy is particularly effective in treating people with problems such as:
Assists with helping to cope with PTSD
Together, these two forms of therapy produce the right outcomes for so many people and they may be right for you too.
