Established since 2010, Karen has become an internationally renowned Equine Osteopath EDO, living in Portugal and working throughout the EU, offering:
  • Equine & Canine Osteopathy
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Veterinary Nutrition
  • Laser Therapy & Acupuncture (Photobiomodulation)
  • Sports Massage
  • Myofascial Release
  • Reiki
  • Kinesiotaping
 
Clients include domestic pleasure horses, riding schools, sports horses to Nation's Cup and Olympic level, and Lusitano horse breeders. 
The key to success is being able to address the whole body, not just part of it. Osteopathy does that by focusing on the neurology, biomechanics, anatomy and physiology of the body's 3 major connecting systems:
  • Parietal - muscles, tendons, ligaments
  • Craniosacral - head, sacrum, spinal cord
  • Visceral - organs 
Karen also works closely with veterinarians, equine dental technicians and farriers in order to achieve the best results possible.
