Mary Traverse, DC, has been certified in the practice of animal chiropractic by the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association, since 2007. Since that time, she has been graced by a stellar reputation in the Central Texas horse community for her gentle, effective, and profound equine (and canine!) touch applications.
“Dr. Mary” has developed a proprietary touch system that can help a horse change behaviors and outlooks. It helps that individual become more calm, more resilient, more trusting, and more flexible. It has been at the core of her work for many years, and now Dr Mary is teaching horse owners to be able to apply this work to their own horses. Her goal is to share this significant work with a broader section of the horse community, for the benefit of horses everywhere.
Dr. Mary will share her skills for enhanced tactile sensitivity, learned over her many years (since 1997) of human chiropractic practice.
What it is: Equine Wellness Touch is a simple, light touch application that helps a horse be in coherence—the natural resting state of an open, calm heart. We humans can also achieve coherence, as our horses do, and EWT helps us all get there!
EWT is a powerful tool that can be used to create calm and receptivity in almost any circumstance with a horse—-before a vet or farrier visit, for example, or prior to hauling, showing, grooming or any kind of riding, or any type of additional bodywork.
EWT is a trust-building tool that becomes a foundation for everything you wish to accomplish with your horse.
A calm, focused, and trusting horse is a more flexible, cooperative, and resilient partner with its human.
EWT is a training method you can use every day, or in demanding situations, to create ease and elasticity in your horse.
EWT allows your horse to be more open and agreeable for anything else you wish to do next!
EWT is a path to wellness—-that state of well-being and calm energy that creates the opportunity for happiness.
What it is NOT: EWT is not chiropractic. It is not osteopathy. It does not correct or address subluxations, the holy grail of the chiropractic adjustment.
EWT is not an effort to correct disease.
