I have shared the Bladder Meridian Technique with a number of clients, many of whom experience anxiety and post-traumatic stress.  These clients have reported experiencing a variety of benefits from the work, including improved energy and focus, mindfulness and emotional regulation, and gratitude for the ability to share something that the horse demonstrates to be of benefit to him.

After the Weekend Course, I was excited to be able to work on my horses and get releases.  After the Advanced 5-Day, I now feel I can perform all the techniques, recognize all the different types of releases and figure out what techniques to use to release specific restrictions.

It was the final steps that brought the book and the video together. Each of those are excellent as a stand alone, but my effectiveness would not be complete without hands-on learning.

Diane KoshtWeekend Seminar

The best equine bodywork modality that is easy to learn and that the horse can respond to and be a participant. A great way to build a better and more subtle bond with your horse.

Mary GilroyWeekend Seminar

Excellent Workshop! It was great to get a chance to ask questions in person and get a detailed answer. Also it was definitely helpful to get the correct method demonstration in person.

Would recommend to anyone who would like to bond and build that relationship with their horse, and for recognizing how the horse communicates.

Jacqueline GarberWeekend Seminar

Eye opening, mindset changing, and an absolutely wonderful way to create a more relaxed, happier horse. Just seeing the changes first hand, I’m completely won over by the Masterson Method. I can’t wait to learn more!

This has been a comprehensive, informative, and spiritual weekend. I will bring this new found attitude and these techniques home to my barn.

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend in Nokomis! They were two of the best days ever. Marie, you were such a great instructor and I learned so much. My favorite part was getting to go on our own and work on the whole horse. I don’t know if you remember, but I was working on Gidget, and she put her chin on my shoulder, made herself comfortable and proceeded to do Head Up all by herself. At that moment tears came to my eyes because I realized what a difference we can make in a horse’s life and how good the Masterson Method techniques can make them feel. It was also at that moment that I knew that this is what I was meant to do (as I would have stayed there for hours and worked on every horse there) and I am going to try to complete the certification process as quickly as my schedule and my commitments allow!
