About me

Dorine Erkens
Guasha Therapist for Human and Horse

Since 1998 I am the proud owner of my own horse, Jaurena (Joki) In the beginning she had a lot of injuries, she was at least a few months a year lame or injured. When she was 10 she is diagnosed with osteoarthritis in the lower joints of her feet. The advice I got was to just walk and ride straight ahead to tax the joints as little as possible.

In Dutch we have a saying for people: ‘Rest rust’. That is of cours the same with horses, so I went looking for a stable with a lot of movement possibilities for Jaurena. Via via I found the stable De Maesberg where horses are outside 24/7. Jaurena liked it very much and because of the combination of lots of movement and focused training in Straightness and Classical Dressage, I could ride her untill she was 26 yeras old. At 27 years it was her time to let her go.

How I discovered guasha

During training I ran into physical blocks of myself and my horse and because of that my attention was drawn to the Guasha treatments of Greetje Hakvoort at the Human & Horse Academy. After receiving some treatments myself, I was convinced by the effects of Guasha. This is how I want to help humans and horses to feel and move better!

In october 2014 I graduated from the Guasha Therapist training course at ‘Guasha Opleidingen Santai‘. I am very proud to be one of the first Guasha Therapists for Horses in the world!

In february 2015 I also graduated as a Guasha Therapist for Humans. Since 2015 I helped many people with all kind of pain related issues.

Happy horse owners

“I greatly enjoyed it, and was able to put my knowledge to immediate use, first on myself and my husband, next on my horse. I really get a lot of pleasure treating my horse, and I also like the feeling of the stone in my hand and all the different ways it can be flipped, turned, and used. It’s like a jade puzzle!”

“I really liked the fact that I got to practice on me before going out to my horse, so I could feel what she would feel.”
