Hello and welcome back to part 3 of my Horses Inside Out Conference 2020 - Anatomy In Action blog.
Today I would like to talk about the first speaker of the conference. The wonderful Vibeke Elbrond, and her presentation on understanding the profound visceral myofascial connections in the horse.
During this blog I hope to share some of Vibeke’s key facts and findings in a way that most of us can understand without taking anything away from the fascinating and detailed research she has taken out on this subject.
As an Equine Massage Therapist that focuses on the soft tissue including the fascia, this is a subject that is close to my heart and one of the lectures I was most looking forward to at the Horses Inside Out conference.
Vibeke Elbrond is a graduate of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Copenhagen and has a PhD in Anatomy and Physiology. Vibeke has focused her research in the field of the functionality and integrity of the fascia.
Some of the main points I took away from this lecture were:
I appreciate these points may not cover the entire lecture and all that Vibeke wanted to put across, but these are the points I personally took away from her lecture.
I hope this blog is useful, it certainly inspired me, so much in fact that I have booked onto a 2 day course with Vibeke in April to learn more about the Facia and Myofascial connections.
And I look forward to sharing my new found knowledge with you and using it to improve my treatments and further help your horses!
Please look out for more blogs in this series of Horses Inside Out Conference 2020 blogs to learn more.
A huge thank you to Horses Inside Out for allowing me access to their professional photos
In my next blog I will be sharing with you the some of the research from David Kempsell of WOW Saddles.
Thanks so much
