AT MIDWEST NATURAL HEALING FOR ANIMALS WE DO FULL BODY BALANCING
Equine Massage is not the ‘end all be all’ modality to help horses to recover from injury! It is  one of many modalities needed to get the animal on the road to recovery.  I do use it as the Cornerstone of my Classes-but for those who use it, and only Massage, they are missing out on so much that is necessary to do this and do it Well!!  This is why I teach so much more-so my students Excel!

CESMT/BIOMECHANICS LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION Amassage Method

You must do the Level 1 Amassage Method before most other classes are allowed. There is information in there, that is a must for you to know before going to the other courses. We might allow you to test out, depending on what other School you went to and if you are a LMT.

Biomechanics is the science of movement of a living body, including how muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments work together to produce movement. Biomechanics explains the negative impacts upon a horse’s body caused by incorrect riding and training methods, such as Rollkur, and riding above the vertical

Invitation to the Secret Facebook group to network with my other students!

PLEASE CHECK YOUR STATE REQUIREMENTS FOR MASSAGE FIRST-I will say I do not agree with several states making this a ‘vet only’ practice, as we all know that vets aren’t about to do any kind of Massage Therapy on a horse! In fact, it’s not even taught in their classes. They will do chiro, but not massage. I feel this needs to change, as well as those teaching Massage. If your state has it as a ‘vet only’ practice, you might want to get involved and find out why and see what you can do to change it, or find other CESMT’s in the state and see how they handle it. Many times, if you have a vet you can work under, and not ‘upset the cart’, do good work many will leave you alone. But do your due diligence to find out.

    Hi Beverly, I’m very interested in your coarses. How do I get started? Also I live in Idaho, do you know the law for that state? Can I practice if I’m not a vet?
    Thank you,
    Sue Duncan

    • thebunch1 says:

      Sue…I also sent you an email…you can get started by sending in your application to me, on the ‘sign up page’. Choose your class and send in the payment to get your February Special! I did check, and Idaho is fine for the Equine Massage!

  2. Rachael Lesslie says:

    I would like to know do you do chiropractor work to? Is that part of the classes

    • thebunch1 says:

      No, to be a chiro you first must be a vet or a human chiro-no state legallly allows someone to do chiro work without being a doctor first. There are new laws being passed right now, if you are doing it, you can be fined, or put in jail for practicing medicine without a license. So, you must do that first, to work on other peoples horses.

  3. Abby says:

    I am not understanding the cost of everything total?? Do students need to find a hotel close by? Thank you for your time. Lisa

  5. Cindy says:

    I would like to clerify & just make sure I am understanding this all correctly. So that I will have all my ducks in a row..
    You must first take the Level 1 class (which is $1175 plus lodging and food) which is a 3 day course. Before even coming to the class you must do 18hrs of studying the muscles, etc.
    Then IF you select me I can go on to the the Level 2 course (which is $1000 plus lodging and food) but it must be 6 months after the Level 1 is completed.
    And The. If selected again, I could move on to the Level 3 course (which is also $1000 plus lodging and food).
    Do I have all my information correct?

    • thebunch1 says:

      Most of it, the first level is a 4 day class, and the selection is based on what you have done. You need to have worked on enough horses to continue so that you have the experience needed for the next level. You don’t have to continue, you are Certified in Level 1 and I have several of my students working in Level 1 right now, and doing great work.
      Any course you choose will be additional for lodging and food.

  6. Cassandra Potts says:

    Hello I am interested in your level 1 course. I would like to know your schedule layout as I would have to get approved for days off work, I live in Arizona. Please let me any detailed info I would need to know to plan a trip to take your course. I.e location/places to stay while there etc. and of course an application as well. Thank you!

    • thebunch1 says:

      Cassandra
      Thank you for your interest in my class. I will post the schedule here for you, it’s all on the Sign up Page as well, if you need more info. Or just email me and I’m happy to answer any questions-as I know there’s a lot on the website. I’d rather have too much than too little info lol.

  7. Emily says:

    Hey Beverly-

    I finished the Equissage at home course earlier in the year but feel I’ve missed out on the wonderful hands on experiences and also am interested in the saddle fitting/gait analysis/biomechanics, etc. I was wondering if you required continuing ed credits for your certification or is it still only for LMT? If so, I may be interested in taking one of your courses! I’m torn between the level 1 and doing the rehab though!!! If I understand correctly you have to do the level 1 before you can do the rehab?

    Thanks!

    • thebunch1 says:

      The saddle fitting I will tell you is a very basic ‘does this saddle fit this horse’ and saddle placement, which is a big problem. To get this and the gait analysis, ‘eeyballing’ etc, yes you need to come to level 1 class. YOu can do the Ala Carte classes, but I only teach my Rehab, cribbing and BTV correction to those who come to all my classes.

    Hello! I am located in Massachusetts and I am in the Army National Guard. becoming a massage practitioner for horses is a dream of mine and I was wondering if you could email me more information on if this course is accepted in MA as well as how to go about signing up and if you take military payment as an option ( if not that’s no problem!) Thank you!

  11. Holly Awald says:

    Very interested in Certification. starting at level 1 and moving up to different levels. I am in Northern Indiana. Where is the best place for the 4 day portion and as far as I seen Massage Therapy is O.K. in Indiana without being a Vet? Thank you and I am hoping to enroll soon!

  12. Rylee Rich says:

    Hi! I am interested in getting my Certification. I am located in Nebraska but plan on moving to Kansas sometime soon. Can I work in these two states without being a vet? Thank you so much! Hope to be talking to you soon and getting enrolled!(:
