... a journey that takes you to the goal
AM-EN has introduced in Ecuador and other Latin American countries a new and innovative methodology called "Integral Rehabilitation on the basis of Hipotherapy".
In this method riding therapy (can also be performed with lamas or donkeys) is used as basis for other therapies.
While riding therapeutically, the alpha waves of the patient increase, he/she relaxes, learns more easily physically and mentally, taking full advantage of the following therapies.
- Conventional Therapies:
Physiotherapy, language therapy, occupational therapy, among others
- Alternative Therapies:
Theatre therapy, music therapy, hydrotherapy, digitopuncture, energy therapies, art therapy (clay, painting), aroma therapy, therapy with dogs.
Complementing or instead of therapies (standing up, walking, boxing, playing with amimals, among others)
GLOBAL REHABILITATION HAS THREE PHASES:
The patient establishes contact with the horse, donkey or llama, the therapists and woluntaries, also getting to know the environment.
The patient rides on a horse, lays down on the horses back, in different positions or sits on a horse together with a volunteer. There have been similar results with other riding animals.
Application of other therapies and/ or exercises
Conventional therapies (physiotherapy, language therapy, among others), alternative therapies (theatre therapy, music therapy, clay therapy, art therapy, energy therapy, ampng others) and exervises after riding therapy.
