hmmm interesting, english words and their tendency.
I suppose there is a difference between things and methode's. Maybe is technique a better word it this case??
Is there someone who can explain the difference for me? i like to hear it...who is still learning english
He explain it as a methode of bodywork that relays on the response of the horse to your touch. To release and find a release in the horse keyjunction ( i dont know if i am writing it well) which most effect the preformance.
he did first massage a horse and saw a reaction which gave him more attention at specific places. That are the trigger points which are used by accupressure, you will hear somewere in his videos the names as bladder meridian and so on.
Those are specific names which are used in that technique.
For example the bladder meridian is the great mediator, it transforms fluids through storage and excretion, Additionaly the bladder meridian has the unique facility of helping balance the entire meridian system.
It begins at a point at the inside corner of the horses eye and runs up and over the poll. it flows down the neck about 2-3 fingers widths from the base of the mane. It flows to the withers, splits into two branches and flows over the top of the scapula. the two branches follow lines parallel to the spine. The top channel runs 2-4 finger widths of the spine, the second branch runs 3-5 fingers lower. The channel flow down the back towards the tail and continue to flow down the hind leg.
You will see in several films that he use this meridan and use at specific places some pressure ( trigger points)
You will see also that he use some streching techniques and flow with his hand along some muscle places to massage that area. Which for exapmle being used by sport massage or fysiotherapy
Thats why i say he use several methods and make his own mix. This mix makes him unique. And i like it too because you can do more in one session. Or maybe in better words work more in balance of the total horse.
I think i miss some english words to describe it perfectly.
after such a session the body of the horse will work further on his own because the trigger poins are stimulated. And you will have more or longer result than only massage the muscles. It will work to in some cases, it is not wrong ofcourse, but different. Any kind of technique is good, but it depends on the horse if it will work.
