Equine Facilitated Therapy

Welcome to Healing Hooves Therapy: Experience the Transformative Power of Equine Facilitated Therapy in Las Vegas

Embrace Healing and Growth with Horses by Your Side

Healing Hooves Therapy offers a unique and powerful form of therapy: Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT). EFT utilizes the profound connection between humans and horses to promote emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Unlike traditional talk therapy, EFT provides an experiential approach, allowing you to learn and grow through non-verbal interactions and activities with these majestic creatures.

What is Equine Facilitated Therapy?

EFT is a holistic therapy that incorporates horses into the therapeutic process. It’s not about riding or horsemanship; instead, it focuses on building trust, communication, and understanding between you and the horse. Through various activities on the ground, you’ll gain valuable insights into your own thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. EFT can help you address a wide range of challenges, including:

  • Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Communication and assertiveness difficulties
  • Grief and loss
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

Benefits of Equine Facilitated Therapy

EFT offers numerous benefits for both mental and physical health. Some of the key advantages include:

  • Increased self-awareness and emotional regulation: Horses are masters at reflecting emotions, helping you become more aware of your own feelings and learn to manage them effectively.
  • Improved communication and social skills: EFT fosters non-verbal communication and empathy, leading to better relationships with others.
  • Enhanced self-confidence and trust: Building a bond with a large animal like a horse can significantly boost your sense of self-worth and trust in your abilities.
  • Reduced stress and anxiety: Spending time with horses has a calming effect, lowering stress hormones and promoting relaxation.
  • Improved physical health: EFT can involve activities like grooming and leading horses, which provide gentle exercise and physical benefits.
