The Whole Horse Podcast with Alexa Linton

Mar 23, 2023

Me and my partner in all things equine body work are back again for another deep-dive into geeky territory! Elisse Miki of Equilibria Therapeutics is back for her fourth episode as we dig right into one of our favourite subjects, cranial therapy, specifically applying to horses. If you've been curious about why cranial work is so effective, what mechanisms are actually being worked with and how they function to help or hinder our horses, the fascinating anatomical landscape of the cranium and spinal cord through an osteopathic lens, and how this work might help your own horses or your clients, this episode definitely worth a listen (or two!).

As a human and equine therapist with over 15 years of experience working with clients in a therapeutic setting, Elisse brings a wide variety of modalities into her practice. She began her career working as an Exercise Physiologist having completed her Bachelors in Kinesiology then went on to obtain her Registered Massage Therapy Licence. She has since gone on to complete Diplomas in Equine Therapy, Equine Craniosacral, and currently in the process of completing both her Human and Equine Osteopathy Diplomas concurrently. Elisse is also an Instructor of RMT at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy and a Certified Equine Assisted Learning Instructor. Some of her clients include the Langley Equestrian Academy, Cloverdale Rodeo, and the International Professional Rugby 7s teams. Her current focus lies in research and development of current standards of practice in the equine industry. Elisse hosts clinics for horse owners and will be offering continuing education courses for existing health care professionals and equine therapists starting in January 2020.
