Integrative Care for Horses and Humans
The enjoyment of an active life – whether in work, athletics, or fun – is increased by a healthy physical condition. Repetitive motion, chronic and acute injuries, fatigue and stress can lead to restricted movement, loss of strength, numbness, tingling and pain.
Dixie Snyder, CMT, enhances the physiology of both people and horses through advanced bodywork that focuses on restoring mobility and suppleness to soft tissues – bringing a greater sense of balance, strength and well-being.
Dixie employs a whole-body approach, integrating diverse and effective therapies. Her work is slow, gentle, interactive and compassionate. Some of the therapies she uses are The Masterson Method, The Trust Technique, osteopathic manipulation Qigong and various other massage modalities.
Dixie’s extraordinary sense of touch allows her to feel adhesions, or scar tissue, in muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as entrapped nerves. She combines this remarkable talent with extensive knowledge of advanced anatomy and biomechanics in order to identify problem areas and develop an individualized therapy program.
"The most important thing in life is to enjoy the journey. Restorative bodywork enriches the body, mind and spirit – generating a deeper sense of happiness in daily life, and optimum athletic performance."
