Sue John, Renmark SA.
In a lifetime of horse interactions, it is delightful to stumble across the occasional diamond among the pebbles.
Janine Gow is one of those diamonds.
In an industry known for ego and competitive drive the quiet achievers often go un-noticed as they calmly work their magic for the equines and humans that need them most.
Janine re-entered my life as a client of my agistment centre. She and her horse became part of our day to day activities and her soft caring personality began it’s valuable work with my beautiful horses.
I am a breeder, coach, trainer, rider and competitor who likes to give every horse individual care and consideration. I am no stranger to alternative healing methods and regularly use chiropractors, trigger point therapists, herbalists and nutritionists in conjunction with mainstream Veterinarians.
Janine has worked with my Medium Advanced Dressage Mare, my brood mares, my school horses, as well as casually working with the foals and yearlings who love her healing touch and calm energy.
The individual approach Janine uses along with her sensitivity to the horse’s particular needs allows her to help the horse on a level it needs most at that moment in time. Her calm manner soothes the patient under her hands and allows the horses energy to work with hers to encourage the horses body to respond as is needed.
The most remarkable of the treatments Janine has provided to my horses are not the ones that involve action or strength but ones that result in complete relaxation and relief of tension for horses plagued by pain or discomfort due to injury or muscle soreness. One such incident was a treatment given to a pony suffering from Wobbler Syndrome. He was in great discomfort, had not rested well in weeks and was not laying down to sleep. He yawned and stretched and promptly sat down… as if to say, thanks Lady, that feels great, I might just take a little break!! Observing the relief he felt was very emotional for me.
Janine has worked with several of my horses now, some more demonstrative in their pain and relief than others, but all grateful for her healing energy and deep knowledge of her chosen subject.
I have no hesitation in recommending Janine to any serious horseperson wanting a gentle approach to healing for their equine partner.
