Guasha is a scraping technique that is more than 2000 years old and has been developed in China to a highly valued therapy, which can be used in hundreds of diseases / complaints. The Guasha technique is aimed at the removal of blockages in the body, caused by waste products and toxins. This creates a better circulation and Qi flow in the body. Two important factors for a healthy body.
In 2012, we were the first in the world to apply the Santai Guasha therapy to horses. Every horse lover in course looking for a good cooperation with the horse. The mental and physical well-being of both parties are essential. This applies to the horse in sport, but also for recreation. The challenge in the anatomical field is enormous and it is our job to take care of this as well as possible to eventually take new steps. The body of a horse, like humans, is subject to ‘waste’ and ‘toxins’. Often caused by problems / traumas from the outside and in the course of time developed into blockades. These blockages result in a reduced flow of QI (energy) and blood. In addition to the attention for practical challenges, there is a lot of attention for the theory of Guasha Therapy, given by Harris Sleegers of Guasha Santai. Besides information, demos and information there are many practical moments. In the beginning, emphasis is on learning the basics, techniques and getting to know Guasha. The floors will gradually come out during the course of the year. More specifically, the operation and refinement are discussed.
Development of horses
Only when a horse is loose in its body, it is only able to develop muscles in a correct way. Cramped or stiff muscles can not develop, because tightening only works if it first relaxes the muscle group. The horse will compensate and use the wrong muscles as support (domino effect). Just think of ‘irregularity’ in a horse. The cause is often not found in the legs. Horses with complaints often express this in behavior. They become nervous, angry or scared. As a result, they stop or run. These symptoms can usually be traced back to mental and physical blockages. Guasha gives a good insight into the ‘problem area’ and ensures a further development and a better flow of Qi and blood. It has a big effect on the development of the muscle mass and on the mental calm of the horse. Only once the horse is relaxed can work be done on a better relationship (harmony).
