B.M.E. Stress Management
for Horses



Stress Relief for Your Horse

Is your horse displaying distressing physical or emotional symptoms as a result of these circumstances?

  • chronic arthritis pain

  • birthing trauma

  • medical procedures

  • relocation 

  • breeding

  • transportation

  • long term illness

Some of these symptoms of stress may be despondency, eating disorders, cribbing, aggression, skin disorders, and lack of energy.

B.M.E. Stress Management for Horses addresses your animal's physical and emotional stress to create an effective treatment plan that will help you manage their stress.

Stress relief is achieved through the use of 
situational stress assessments, environmental recommendations, Therapeutic Touch treatments, and owner/trainer after-care.  Referrals may be made to other practitioners i.e. massage therapist, chiropractor, acupuncturist, veterinarian or hydrotherapy clinic.

B.M.E. Stress Management Assessments© and treatment plans are done on location.  They involve collecting and analyzing information about physical conditions, environmental factors and emotional influences that may be contributing to the animal's current symptoms, illness or behaviours. 

Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor and re-assess the continued effectiveness of the plans and progress of the horse.

After-care may involve environment changes, physical activity, schedule changes and behavioural supports.

Client Referrals

"I came to Martha because my race horse was becoming aggressive and sometimes very despondent.  His symptoms were sore points along his withers and leg splints.  Martha was able to come on very short notice to assess and treat my horse in his stall.  Follow-up sessions helped to fully settle my horse and he is continuing to do well.  Thanks, Martha for your stress management skills."  R.

Therapeutic Touch© is a treatment that helps to release the stressful energy of tension and shock that can cause distressing physical and emotional symptoms.

Appointments are available to prepare a horse for a new situation as well as to assist recovery from a stressful experience. 

Therapeutic Touch is a stress management healing practice commonly used in hospitals and hospices to help alleviate the on-set of stress and pain associated with many standard treatments and procedures. It is used at Columbia University Hospital in heart surgery, to relieve pre and post operative stress, thereby significantly improving recovery time.
