Susan believes that hands-on body work can be important complementary practices for healthy riding. The results are a more complete integration of body awareness, and release of stiffness and pain resulting in the rider becoming more relaxed and skilled while riding.
Her years of studying and experiencing The Feldenkrais® Method have provided Susan with another tool to enable her students to perform with minimum effort and maximum efficiency. It uses gentle movements to reprogram the nervous system. The result is increased awareness, greater ease of movement, and increased ability to move with your horse. Although Feldenkrais is already incorporated into Susan’s riding lessons, she works closely with Sam Nelson, RochesterFeldenkrais.com, who is available for weekly classes in Geneseo.
A Reiki Level 2 practitioner, Susan also can apply Reiki healing sessions to humans or horses. Reiki is an ancient art of natural healing. Its gentle non-intrusive, yet powerful hands-on approach restores the natural balance of the body. Intensive instruction days, or weekends, are also available; please click here to contact Susan by email or phone to schedule your private session.
