More Information

This dynamic course is very different from the Equine MFR I course. In the MFR I course where emphasize is placed on the use of the right brain for listening to the body and using intuition, in the MFR II course students will be using the left brain to investigate the possible causes of certain restrictions. Additionally, the course will cover specific rehabilitation situations. This is a three-day course and will run on from the Equine Level I MFR course.

Venue: The Hemel en Aarde Farm, Hermanus www.heafarm.co.za

Price: R 10,950.00 per person

We are privileged that this course will be presented by Ruth Mitchell-Golladay, owner of the Equine Therapeutic Center in Virginia.

Course Duration: Students attend class daily for three days from 8am to 5pm.

This course is part of the Equinology® Extension Certification Modules and is required for the Equinology® Equine Body Worker Myofascial Release Certification. The EQ1110 Equine Myofascial Release Level Two is also required in addition to the Equinology® Equine Body Worker certification to attain this MFR certification. However, students of all levels are invited to take this course as long as they meet the prerequisites listed above.

This course is designed for those individuals who have participated in the EQ1100 Equine Myofascial release level I course. Ruth will expand on the MFR techniques and will present exercises to address the body’s dysfunction enabling better recovery. There will be loads of problem solving with various labs and lots of discussion. Each participant is asked to share one case study using Equine Myofascial Release Techniques (this is not required if you are doing the two MFR classes back to back).

Documentation including initial exam, sessions completed and outcome will be needed. Any visuals are welcome; please check with the office at least 3 weeks in advance if you require equipment which we may have on hand for your presentation. Ruth will direct class discussion over each case study.

In an effort to enhance the seminar students are requested to bring the following to class (again not required if you are doing the 2 MFR classes back to back):

  1. A list of common or consistent problems/restrictions you have encountered while performing MFR in the pelvis/hind end
  2. A list of common or consistent problems/restrictions you have encountered while performing MFR in the neck/shoulder/front end
  3. A list of rehabilitation challenges you have faced
