In response to Gov. McMaster’s order of the closure of all non-essential business in South Carolina, Pas de Cheval Equine Services will be following the recommended closure from April 1st - 15th. Although I have been using social distancing and working on the horses without the owners present, I do still travel between multiple locations a day, touching stall doors/ handles/ gates, halters & lead ropes. If you have an appointment scheduled during the next 15 days, I will reach out to you individually to reschedule.
I love our Aiken horse community and look forward to the next time I see each of you! Stay safe & well.

To correct your seat and posture…

"Imagine your pelvis as an old-fashioned goldfish bowl. To maintain your posture while you ride, keep the water in the bowl level. If your pelvis is tipped forward, the water will pour out onto the horse’s withers. If your pelvis is tipped backward, you will pour the water out onto the haunches." —Janice Dulak

As of March 5, 2020, I am currently at max capacity and not able to accept any new clients at this time. I highly value all my clients, and quality service is my priority over quantity. I want to be able to continue to give my best to each horse on my schedule.
Thank you!
If things change and I get new openings, I will update.

The Regenerative Advantage

Regenerative Laser Therapy (RLT) is achieved when light is delivered in very short, very high-energy pulses. When these pulses are absorbed deep into the tissue, they create an outgoing shockwave (in all directions;) called a photo-acoustic wave that propagates even deeper into the tissue. More importantly, these waves can interact with the extracellular matrix, a web of tissue around the tendon/ligament that hold important growth factors. RLT can force these growth factors to be released and absorbed into injured cells when they would NOT have naturally. RLT technology broadens the scope of what can be treated to the more severe pathologies, especially in the ligaments and tendons of the equine athlete.

Injuries that will naturally cause scar tissue, which over time will compromise the elasticity of the tendon/ ligament, can now be nipped in the bud (if caught early) or even restored in chronic cases.

Call today to discuss the RLT laser & schedule your appointment

One way that Red Light Therapy can be used is as a tool to stimulate acupoints that lie beneath the skin. It's often referred to as "non-invasive acupuncture" because the RLT is used rather than a needle. It can bring harmonious flow of chi back to the body, release tight areas, relieve pain, and facilitate healing.
(Videos below show a mare responding to RLT Acupoint session today.)

Light Therapy For Your Horse - Equine Wellness Magazine

"Photonic light therapy mimics the vibration level of a healthy cell. When the therapy is applied to cells that are not working properly, it jump-starts the mitochondrial activity (cellular energy) in the cell and the cell starts functioning normally. This activity promotes accelerated healing and pain relief."

Light therapy is a broad-based therapy that can eliminate frustration and ease the burden of vet bills in many horse-related issues.

Our local equine rescue could really use a hand.

Our local equine rescue could really use a hand.

**update**we have gotten quotes for shipping and we are looking at around $1,500**

We are in need of help! We are getting in 6 ponies that fell into a bad situation. These ponies at one point were carnival and birthday party ponies and are kid safe kid friendly. We need to raise at least $1,000 to cover quarantine expenses, veterinary expenses, and we also need to help cover shipping. If anyone is coming from Leonard, Michigan area and can donate or discount shipping that would be a HUGE help. If you can we are able to provide you with a tax receipt for your help!!!

This is a hard time of year for donations coming into the holiday season, but we want to do right by these ponies and help them to safety.

TCM is fascinating. My favorite subject to study. Although... I would not be that comfortable around a snake!

Ever thought about needling a reptile?

Acupuncture proved very effective for an 8.5-year-old female red-tailed boa constrictor that presented to the University of Georgia Veterinary School with an abnormal curvature of the spine, decreased appetite and defecation. She was diagnosed with septic osteomyelitis associated with severe local muscle spams and bone pain. Antibiotics were prescribed and an acupuncture consult with Dr. Jennifer Good was recommended. Her TCVM Pattern diagnosis was consistent with local Qi Stagnation, and treatment focused on Ah Shi points and Hua-tuo-jia-ji in the affected area. Within less than a minute of needle insertion, the snake relaxed which resulted in disappearance of the S-shaped spinal deformity.

Cadence Therapy

Cadence Therapy

PSA... Over the past couple weeks of horseshows, I’ve spent a lot of time ringside. It is CRAZY how tight people are girthing up just before they go into the ring. An over-tightened girth may pinch and bruise the muscles - in particular the pectorals, trapezius, serratus ventralis muscles and latissimus dorsi (see red areas in diagram bleow). This muscle group (also known as part of the thoracic sling) is crucial for movement. Besides soft tissue, an over tightened girth may also cause bruising of the ribs, the intercostal muscles between the ribs, And increase the overall pressure of the saddle on the back muscles. Check your girth underneath their chest, NOT on the side. You will be surprised the difference one hole can make, and quite literally give your horse some breathing room.

I have been using Red Light Therapy (RLT) on myself for the past 7 months for relief from neck pain and headaches. I use both the standard light to stimulate acupoints and the pad for muscle/ fascia relaxation & repair. Red Light Therapy works by emitting red light within a specific therapeutic wavelength (660nm). The application of the RLT mimics the vibration of a healthy cell and activates mitochondrial activity (your cell's battery).
After being quite happy with the results on myself, I recently started using RLT on the horses. The horses have all responded well and seem to enjoy it.

EQUILIFE FUN FACT!

A "Prophet's Thumbprint" is a birthmark in the form of an indentation, usually found on the side of a horse’s neck, and it is totally harmless although it comes with a lovely legend...

The Prophet Mohammed was wandering the desert with his herd of horses for many days, and as they approached an oasis he sent them forth to drink. But as the thirsty horses approached the water, he called them back. Only five of his mares stopped and returned to him, and to thank them for their loyalty he blessed them by pressing his thumbprint into their necks.
It’s believed that a horse with such a mark will be outstanding, being a descendant of one of these brood mares that the Prophet Mohammed particularly treasured.

What TCM has known for centuries: ‘new’ brain-gut connection

Recent research has found that bacteria in the gut can affect people’s mental state, leading to mood, cognition and behavioural problems. But in TCM, the link between the gut and all of the body’s organs has long been recognised.
