hi my name is Jess and I’m a fifth year
center student and this is just the
whole day we’ll be interested in
occupational therapy and treatment

besides the 3b movement of a whole to
instill neurological changes to patients
along with benefits the sensory system
and patients psychological well-being
however with less than thirty trained
hypnotherapist in the UK it is clear
that this is not a well-known or well
used form of therapy in fact we found
that using conjunction with standard
forms or certain things

hypnotherapy can be effective in
achieving functional outcome as well so
two goals there I want to introduce to
you the benefits and Facebook survey in
the hope that health care professional
we permit an IV for therapy as a form of
treatment we’ve had the occasion to

ability function and sickness also it
may inspire you to train and teach to
preserve for yourself thank you to begin
I want to demonstrate some movement
points of the horses pelvis in direct
comparison to those of the rider spine
and pelvis as the horse and rider walk
alongside one another notice the
similarities in the movement at their
hips and pelvis as the rider walks along
they will experience the 3d movement of
the pelvis there will be some anterior
posterior pelvic rotation in the
sagittal plane some right and left
lateral rotation in the frontal plane
and right and left

transverse rotation in the transverse
plane we’re now going to move on and
you’re going to demonstrate some
different movements that can be
conducted in hippotherapy sessions and
how we can use different movements to
strengthen and target various areas of
the body by initially doing activities
with the horse in standing it allows the
rider to be comfortable with sitting
upon the horse and

also the warmth from the horse’s body
can help to reduce cone in the lower
limbs here you can see our rider
reaching out of her base of support for
cones this not only targets the core
muscles and works upper limbs but also
makes the task functional and fun even
for this able-bodied rider you can see
that it is difficult for her to maintain
her balance consistently a hippo

therapist can establish the cause of
this loss of midline is it kindness or
weakness for example and then adapt
their therapy accordingly in order to
address this problem

turning whilst maintaining position
involves increased amounts of motor
planning many patients will need
assistance with this riding sideways
induces more of a lateral weight shift
over the pelvis the rectus abdominals
work hard to maintain midline as do the
oblique and transverse apps and

latissimus dorsi posteriorly with the
legs hanging down this provides a
stretch to the lower limb alternatively
for low tone legs they can be supported
as well as reducing tone the warmth from
the horse can also improve blood
circulation research has found that
using Kiko therapy alongside standard
adjuncts can significantly improve
postural control and balance in
functional activities

as we begin on the circle gravity will
naturally push our rider to the outside
so the back muscles need to work harder
to counteract their and if we circled on
the other rain clearly the abdominals
and core muscles would need to kick in
the simple nature of transitions can
help to target the body stabilizing
muscles in this sideways position lats
door sight and new bleak are targeted
head control is also challenged further
during these transitions in the

forward-facing position as we halts the
horse the back muscles are initiated and
as we walk on the stomach muscles work
to maintain our riders balance
in this position you can see our riser
is leaning to the left her left side
muscles may be shortened and right-side
lengthen by doing activities that

encourage a rider to reach to the right
or by circling to the left we hope to
dampen down and stretch the left side
whilst increasing the activity in the
right and hopefully readjusting our
rider to midline riders will often use
their vision to establish their position
within space and time when the rider is
turned backwards it is more difficult to
use their vision to rely upon

therefore it is challenging their other
sensory systems such as muscles joints
and the vestibular organs for those
riders who may be less able or require
more sensory input we can utilize the
horse’s pelvis to increase the base of

leaning on hands encourages weight
bearing through the wrists elbows and
shoulders and increases proprioceptive
information through to these joints as
the rider leans on her elbows you can
see the increased amount of Swing going
through her body reaching out of the
base of support while the horse is still
in motion is difficult but for the more
advanced riders this really challenges
their balance core stability motor

planning and arm function and finally a
lot of children feel that hypnotherapy
is not the therapy but the chance for
them to have some fun and enjoy some
freedom upon the horse we need to use
this so the child can experience the
therapeutic games whilst they feel
they’re enjoying themselves and having
fun too this may include doing

activities such as puzzles or throwing
and catching for example finally these
websites include further information on
hippotherapy and how you can train as a
hypnotherapist should you wish to read
them thank you for watching
