During your horse’s equine soft tissue session he/she will receive a full body soft tissue session. Your horse’s requirements will be individually assessed and a soft tissue plan will be developed. This program will be sport and individual-need specific.
The modalities available for sessions include; massage, myofascial release, crystal therapy, acupressure, cranial sacral therapy, photonic therapy, stretching, aromatherapy, kinesio-taping and range of motion. The horse will be the director of his/her session as Tina assesses the tissue and decides on a course of action.
Tina will carry out an assessment during your horse’s soft tissue session. Each horse owner is left with an individualized program of stretching and exercise therapy that is specific to the needs found during the body work session. This way the owner is empowered to keep working on the horse’s healing at home.
Trainers receive a $15.00 saving on their personal horses’ sessions.
For sessions that require Tina to travel with an overnight stay, the fee will be $160.00 per session. Travel, accommodation and food expenses are additional; the cost of which will be split between participants.

My biggest priority when working with a client and their horse is to make each experience relaxed, easy and worthwhile. From my initial assessment to my session report after working on their horse, I will listen to concerns and will help the client achieve a therapy plan to fit their needs.

Tina will carry out a full assessment of your horse. This including a static and dynamic assessment. This will allow Tina to perform a complete postural review to develop the appropriate bodywork, exercise, range of motion and stretching program for the individual horse.
Movement analysis is an invaluable tool for a client’s knowledge of what is currently happening with their horse. It allows the client to see the restrictions in the horse’s gait, and through this knowledge be able to develop a treatment and riding program that will bring the correct wellness practitioners to the horse.
Tina will carry out a simple saddle assessment, fitting saddles to the horse’s back in the static position. This may rule out many saddles before the complete saddle-fitting session is booked. A saddle should never be decided on by static assessment only. The horse is the one true judge of the saddle’s sure fit, so a movement trial is also needed to truly know that the right match has been found.
Tina will do a complete analysis of the horse’s back shape, saddle fit in static and dynamic situations, and create templates for the client to use while shopping for a saddle. These templates are appropriate to send to a saddle maker who is doing a custom fit. A full saddle fitting will include watching the rider in the saddle, how the horse’s movement is changed by adding the saddle’s weight and if the saddle impinges on movement. Video is often used to assess in slow motion what the saddle and the rider are doing as a unit per session.

Come to my meditation room at our family farm and experience a channel healing. During your session you will receive a channeled meditation from your guides. This intense session will bring you clarity and exercises to take home and continue your journey. Your healing journey will be aided by crystals and sacred Tibetan meditation bowls as you are guided through your meditation and/or hands on healing. As you take this time for your emotional body you will awaken your spiritual body and feel the oneness as your vibration is raised and a true holistic experience of bringing radical joy to mind, body and spirit is, undertaken.
Once seated in the meditation chair I will place the crystals whose properties are best suited for your individual healing around and on your body. Once this sacred grid has been completed, you will join me on a channeled meditative healing journey and look into places of fear, lack and low vibration that the guides will help you to heal. Reminding you of your true self worth and internal wonder that is just waiting to shine through. The guides want you to shine and to see yourself as they see you; whole, perfect, wondrous, loving and complete.
Sessions range in time from 45 mins to an hour+ or just over.

Come and experience a channeled group meditation night, held once a month at the Watkins farm in beautiful southern Alberta. During this event, Tina will channel a guided meditation that will promote wellness, healing, joy, love, and an increase in the vibration within your spiritual, emotional, and physical being. You will receive programmed crystals to use for the evening to support your healing and essential oils will also be used to clear low vibration energy and allow you to be more present during the event.
Meditation is a non-denominational practice that will bring you to the centre of your being, introduce you to your higher self and allow you to shed fear and low vibration energy. By starting to go within, one can truly discover the being that they wish to be, quiet the ego and thrive.
Meditation is a non-denominational practice that is recognized by all beings as the true way to understand and connect with one’s soul. Once a being can start to love themselves from the inside, then that being can express that love to those around them, as well as the universe. Tina feels meditation has benefited her immensely and feels by teaching others she can help them others find their soul’s path.
Crystals and stones have been used since ancient times for their healing properties and beauty. Placing crystals and stones on one’s body invokes a palpable feeling. The wellness properties of crystals and stones vary from creating joy to healing malfunction of tissue and ridding the body of low vibration energy. Placing crystals and stones on the energy centres of the body (chakras), can help to clear these centres, restore energy balance and promote healing.
During my journey of learning about crystals and their healing properties, my scientific side kicked in and wondered why and how this works. I conducted several experiments where I would weigh the crystal on a digital food scale prior to placing on the client’s. Recording this weight I would then place the crystal on the client and it would remain for the entire healing session. I would record each crystal’s weight as I took them off the client. Remarkable results were seen from this experiment; the crystal would weigh more where it was taking in low vibrating energies from the client. The client would express that pain in that area was reduced and the area physically and emotionally felt lighter. In areas where the healing qualities of the crystal were being absorbed by the client, the crystal would physically weigh less. This was remarkable to me and proof for a scientific mind that the crystals were working.
Temperature changes in crystals beyond that of the body’s temperature were also noted. In areas of pain the crystal would come off the tissue hot with a noted sweat mark where crystal was placed. Horses and dogs are not able to tell you if they feel a pain reduction, but the commonly-accepted methods of autonomic nervous system release were noted. Licking, chewing, lip wiggling and passing gas, deep breathing and relaxation were all present.
Since adding crystal and stone therapy to my therapy tool kit I feel that my massage is easier to perform. The horse or dog seems to release easier and areas of soreness are less guarded. Animals, unlike humans, have no placebo effect, so to hear from clients that horses feel great after their session that included crystals is the pat on the back I needed to confirm that this is a valued modality to have in my practice.
