Myofascial Kinetic Lines on the Equine Head – Affected by Training and the Bridle and Related to Cranio-Sacral Therapy, Dr. Rikke Schultz

Sunday 3rd March 2024 @ 14:00 HRS GMT

Most of the Myofascial Kinetic Lines attach on the head and can therefore be affected by the bridle and the training position of the head and neck. The anatomy and the lines of the head will be presented and the pressure points of the bridle taken into consideration to understand how it can affect the head locally but also the whole spine. The lines also surrounds the temporo-mandibular joints (TMJ) so if there are problems affecting that, it can manifest as loss of subtleness in the gaits. The attachments of the deep lines to the cranium can affects the cerebrospinal fluid and should be considered in cranio-sacral therapy.
