"When I started EASE therapy I had been through several years of counseling, and self-help studies to try and find relief from anxiety. I was taking medications for high blood pressure and anxiety, and suffered from regular tension migraines. By the end of 6 weekly equine therapy sessions with Stacie, I was cleared by my Primary Care Physician to discontinue both the blood pressure and anti-anxiety meds. By the end of each session, I felt so completely relaxed, as though I had had an hour message. The relaxation techniques I learned have also helped reduce the frequency of tension headaches, and I am so grateful for the better quality of life I now have." -Rachel

“I felt the most relaxed ever after 1 session” 18 yr old client

“I sent a client and she returned a different person!
She even looked different, having changed her life
completely!” Shelly Wiggins, outpatient therapist
