of ongoing professional development
With a 20 year background in human health as an occupational therapist and a life-long passion for horses, Paula combined the two to create PureEquine in 2011. Initially commencing with training in both human (Fascial Kinetics) and equine Bowen therapy (European School of Equine Bowen Therapy) in 2010, Paula continues to regularly review her practice and add new techniques to her tool box preferring now to consider herself as more of a soft tissue therapist or integrated equine therapist.
“Know that I will give you the best of my knowledge to assist you in reaching your goals to find balance, well-being and performance for your horse.”
