Underneath the shade trees in the middle of a forest is an alternative therapy center that uses horses to treat patients with various diseases and disabilities. It was because of Facundo that Melania began her current career. Made by 5e Creative Labs. The natural sounds of the Nicoyan forest help patients relax as soon as they step out of the car. Horses are very sensitive and can perceive when someone is nervous. When that happens, they also become nervous.
At the start of a session, a therapist must transmit confidence and safety to a child so she can adequately receive the benefits. If a horse feels at peace with the team, it will react accordingly. Not any type of horse can be used for this kind of therapy.
Horses need to be calm and docile with broad, smooth steps. Height also plays an important role so that therapists can hold and provide security to the patient. He has attended therapy twice a week since March.
His mother says it has helped significantly improve his posture. He also has begun to form words, his mood has improved and he sleeps better. Lucas enjoys the rides and takes advantage of the equine-assisted therapy that his mother offers in the middle of the forest. For three years, Castillo traveled every week with her son to the province of Alajuela, until one day she decided to become an equine-assisted therapist, traveling to Mexico for training.
Caleb Venegas, 2, began therapy a month ago. At first he was untrusting and frightened, but the team was patient, allowing him to become comfortable with the animal.
After 40 minutes, Caleb completed the exercises with no problem, and he even smiled. Diana Arnaes, 29, who has congenital glaucoma, muscular atrophy, bone malformation and cerebral palsy, began attending in May.
Her mother says Diana loves the contact with her horse and finds the energy contagious. Her favorite part of the therapy is being in nature with the horses, flora, birds, monkeys and the different sounds of the forest, which transport her to a calm and peaceful place. Related Content.
