Dental Alignment of the TMJs
Techniques for dental work are based in Natural Balance Dentistry™/ Neuromuscular Horse Dentistry™ current progressive concepts. Dental Alignment of the TMJs includes an initial evaluation of TMJ movement patterns and natural occlusion, followed by dental adjustments to the incisors and molars using hand floats and a speculum. This service is suggested for most horses 1-2 times each year, to promote balanced movement and optimal neuromuscular function through the horse’s whole body. Most Dental Alignment sessions are about 60-90 minutes.
Changes made to the angles and texture of the horse’s teeth during floating, affect posture, neuromuscular health and movement patterns through the entire body. Dentistry is also the primary factor determining healthy eruption and wear patterns in the teeth, throughout the horse’s lifetime. Please ask questions – your horse, and all horses can benefit from our understanding!

Whole Body Balance: Techniques are based in Masterson Method® Equine Performance Bodywork, blended with Reiki, additional acupressure points and horsemanship. Sessions include an initial evaluation, establishing relaxed communication with the horse, identifying and releasing tension, and improving range of motion through key junctions of the body that affect performance. You may have the opportunity to learn easy techniques to practice, and to discuss key components affecting Whole Body Balance for the individual horse. Most Whole Body Balance sessions are about 60-75 minutes.

Combined Services: Dental Alignment of the TMJs and Whole Body Balance in one blended session, includes initial bodywork evaluation and releases before full mouth dental adjustments. After dentistry, bodywork follow up to release stomatognathic and craniosacral connections, is most valuable at 3-6 weeks. Packages may be offered on a timeline suited to the individual horse. Combined sessions maximize the efficiency and longevity of results, initiating new neurological pathways and lasting changes in movement and performance.
