As you may have figured out by now, there are many choices out there when it comes to “horse massage” schools. How do you know which one to choose? Is one school good enough to equip you to make it out there in the real horse world? Why do all the hours of education vary from course to course? And does it matter? To help you answer some of these questions be sure to read the articles “How to Chose an Equine Massage School for You” and ” What is Equine Massage Certification?” posted on our website.

What is most exciting is that there ARE so many options available today! The tide is definitely turning and alternative health care options for horses are becoming widely sought after!  NOW is the time to act on that shift.  You do have many choices and it is very important that you pick a school that speaks to your heart.

Once you’ve searched the internet you then become aware that there are many different ways to facilitate healing through the art of touch.

EquinePacifica –BY FAR – is not your typical “horse massage school experience”. While you will read below that we absolutely teach a strong basic curriculum, an element of the unseen and extraordinary power of love and energy predominates all topics.

At EquinePacifica we have put together a 7Day Retreat that teaches you THREE specific foundational healing modalities:

  1. Triggerpoint therapy
  2. Deep Circulatory Strokes
  3. Energy Work including: Meridian Energetic Touch, Aura Cleansing, Chakra Balancing and Essential Oils

You can use them all or each one separately and you will be amazed at the results.

Here are just a few of the outstanding features that sets apart the EquinePacifica program:

  • Extensive daily hands on practice with multiple horses
  • One on one and group instruction
  • Daily dedicated “me time” – to transform you into a vibrant facilitator of healing including beach yoga and meditation
  • Professionally prepared organic meals (gluten free and vegetarian if needed)
  • Guest speakers 
  • Personal 1 hour  professional Shiatsu massage for YOU
  • Group meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) to encourage the exchange of information and experiences

You’ll find that while it is most important to have a strong foundation to draw from – time after time you’ll be astounded at the healing benefits imparted to the horses – not only from your “smarts”  but also from the love and intent blended with the education.

And speaking of education…the EquinePacifica program is purposefully designed to let you learn in a relaxed atmosphere of love. It’s not your typical high stress, school room setting. Class time is infused with inspirational sharing, laughter and love as well as time just get to know your classmates and instructors. We like to be real here and the horses are all about that!
