Dr. Mark Barnes developed the techniques and manuals for this course. This 3-day, hands-on course is designed for anyone interested in learning myofascial release techniques for the equine client. It is especially beneficial for equine health professionals and therapists to add to their treatment techniques. The course will teach you the skills to evaluate and treat musculoskeletal pain associated with myofascial restrictions such as back pain, undiagnosed lameness, limitation of motion, and training difficulties.

Tamara Thomas is the instructor for Equine 1. She personalizes instruction to complement and enhance your learning style. Tamara will tune in to your unique qualities and help you access additional pathways to learning.

"My husband & I hosted an EQ-1 class in August 2015, and I attended the class. I am an LMT and an equine therapist. This was my first 'official' MFR class and I LOVED it! We had a wonderful group of students who worked amazingly well together.

Tamara is a gifted healer and an awesome instructor. She always made sure all students participated equally and understood each technique... Tamara even stayed after class one evening to help me practice on one of my OTTB's who needed some extra work.

It is obvious Tamara loves her work, as her passion truly shines in her teaching! Looking forward to EQ-2!"

" had the pleasure of attending the Equine Myofascial Release seminar with Tamara Thomas. Her teaching style is professional, clear, supportive and authentic.

She has the ability to blend deep knowledge of both Myofascial Release and horsemanship. She can balance the technical detailed treatment techniques along with "feeling the releases",energetic shifts and the equine nonverbal communications.

Her approach fosters my love of Myofascial Release, horses and the grounding and fun encompassed by my experiences with her. I am chomping at the bit to attend Equine MFR 2."
