At Chava Naturals, we know the power of the partnership from horses. Be a part of our #GivingTuesday Movement and help us start the busy holiday season helping participants of Sundance Circle Hippotherapy Program.
Giving Tuesday was created to unite the generosity in all of us, to make a difference in lives. We will give 10% of all sales today to help participants receive care through Sundance Circle.
Hippotherapy is a form of physical, occupational or speech therapy in which a licensed therapist uses the characteristic movements of a horse to provide carefully graded sensory input. For clients recovering from injury or who have physical disability, Hippotherapy is an excellent exercise for improving functional mobility. Facilitated by our licensed Occupational Therapist, Ann Viviano, Amanda Saliba, our licensed Physical Therapist John Payne and our Speech Language Pathologists Jenny Guth and Ann Viviano, sessions are conducted mounted or on the ground. Patient and therapist develop goals and treatment plans for functional improvements using the horse as a therapeutic tool and exploiting the horses’ movement to benefit the rider. Goals do not involve horsemanship and are strictly focused on physical improvements in balance, proprioception, range of motion, postural control, muscular strength and endurance, and cardiovascular fitness. Participants are referred through their physicians and therapists.
