Fascia is connective tissue like a spider web throughout the body. When it becomes restricted, it creates pain and dysfunction. Releasing the tissue with light gentle pressure allows healing and improved range of motion and decreased pain.
The cranial system controls all functions of the body. When it becomes out of sync due to injury, illness, posture, etc you may experience pain and dysfunction. A very light pressure releases restrictions and corrects the imbalance.
Release of acupressure points in multiple places on the body affect areas distant from the spot. Horses respond with release of the tissue and tension.
