Try some Cranial Massage for your Horse

About a month ago, at the request of several horse listeners, we started a private LTYH Facebook group. Of course, if you’re reading this blog, you are welcome to join!

The thing people enjoy about the private group, is that you can share pictures or videos of your own horse, brainstorm ideas with other like-minded people, or ask for help/advice. So one of the members shared some issues she was having with her horse, where the horse suddenly started spooking at things. Güliz Ünlü suggested that cranial massage might help – for the reasons she will explain in the video below.

What I love about this video, is the way Güliz teaches us to follow our own bodies and our FEEL, rather than learning specific spots or techniques. She starts with some purely energetic work on Juno out in the field and you can see how he drops into processing his trauma just from having us focus our attention on it, combined with the intention of him releasing and balancing his head.

Next, Aude comes forward for some quick work – also related to a past trauma. I begin to receive pictures/information from her about the trauma, as Güliz applies light pressure/holding to a couple spots. Güliz is supporting her physically, I am voicing her old story that she is ready to release, we’re both supporting her energetically… AND she’s done. Very quickly. She walks away.

We walk into the barn and Montaro is waiting for us – already sunk deep into meditative state. And so the deeper work begins…

If your horse has issues with spooking, or head injury, mouth pain, teeth issues, poll sensitivity, headaches, or if their face is out alignment (Güliz shows you how to check this) then perhaps some gentle cranial massage is just what your horse needs.

    Hey there,
    It is so beautiful the way you and the horses flow.
    Thankyoufor sharing this as my horse had a traumatic experience pulling back frantically, when he was stupidly tied by me, causing the lead to get caught under something and he freaked. My fault entirely gulp!
    I was able to get him through the fear, and mine as well, to where he was calm in the end. V scary as he’s a big boy just under 17h and I haven’t had much experience with situations like that eek! We were both traumatised!
    I have had the impression that since then he isn’t moving as well as he could be, so I am feeling it may be due the pulling on his head,after watching the vid.
    I will try the method and observe.
    Thankyou so much for sharing info. Jarrah will certainly be thankful too, as it helps me to better help him.
    I love what you guys do! I knew somewhere inside me there was a more respectful way to connect to horses and I found your website. Yay!
    And it helps me enormously, as I am new to having a horse and want to do the best by him.

    Btw- I feel your horses touching my heart when I watch certain vids, I cry and yawn alot.
    Would you mind passing on my heartfelt thanks to them please.thanks.
    Much Love
    Erin 😊

      That is so cool Erin! And I think they’ve already received your thanks 🙂 And yes, do let us know what you perceive or what happens when you do this massage for him. Love the name Jarrah!

      p.s. I got your other messages too and took care of the privacy issue.
