Horses react to what lies in our hearts, not in our heads.

Why would my horse need Craniosacral Therapy?


And why should I call Karen?

Craniosacral Therapy is a natural approach that benefits by reducing pain, increasing mobility of joints, tissues and fluids, and improving overall health and function of the body, mind and spirit.

Owners and trainers have me treat their horses for all kinds of reasons; from general wellness, to training issues and diagnosed conditions.

If there are restrictions in the body, for whatever reason, CST can help locate and release them. The horse shows me where they want to work and I facilitate their healing process.

One of the areas that I feel I am good at, is creating the space where healing can happen at its best.

Please let me know what kind of kind of treatment you are interested in and the days and times that work best for you (1 hour for you, 2 horses and you, etc). I will do what I can to accommodate your schedule as best I can.

I recommend scheduling your appointment in advance. Typically it’s 2 to 4 weeks to get an appointment.

Karen has worked her magic on myself and several of my horses. I am not new to bodywork, so it is through experience that I can say that Karen has a very special sensitivity and technique. The results are unmistakable. I can see the changes happening in the horses as she works, and I can feel a difference when I ride them. I especially appreciate how she works with the horse, taking into account their emotional state and willingness to allow her ‘in’. I have personally felt significant changes in my own body that vary from just feeling amazingly relaxed, to resolving some long-standing asymmetries.

Dressage, Naturally

Karen will not diagnose any illness, disease or dysfunction. CST has a proven record of success as a stand alone therapy. Some clients and physicians choose to use CST along with other modalities and/or allopathic medicine. There are rare cases where it should not be used exclusively as a substitution for medical treatment.
