Gizelle, founder of Sacred Horse, is an Equine Naturopath dedicated to maintaining horse health and healing illness through natural, traditional methods that bolster wellbeing rather than mask problems. Gizelle currently offers Herbal Medicine consults and Equine Myofunctional Therapy sessions, a bodywork modality that combines massage, passive stretching and rehabilitation exercises. Recognising the innate ability of the body to heal itself, Gizelle’s methods empower horse owners to take small steps to improve the overall health and wellbeing of their horses, regardless of their circumstances. Gizelle’s focus on client education allows horse owners to become part of the solution, enabling them to maintain the health of their horses and learn to prevent illness before it occurs.
In addition to her naturopathic services, Gizelle is dedicated to the education of horse owners through speaking engagements, having presented on herbal medicine and equine physical rehabilitation topics to riding clubs and peak industry bodies, such as HorseSA.
Committed to excellence, Gizelle is a full professional member of the Small Animal and Equine Naturopathic Association, plus a full professional member of the Australian Society of Rehabilitation Counsellors, on account of her work as a rehabilitation consultant to injured workers, their employers and health care providers. This dual background in both equine and human rehabilitation gives Gizelle a unique and diverse perspective on illness, injury and recovery frameworks.
Gizelle will soon be expanding her offering to include personalised nutrition consults and energy healing modalities, which she has been studying and incorporating into her Equine Myofunctional Therapy treatments for a number of years.
