Equine Therapy

At Ocean Recovery Centre we take a holistic approach to recovery whether you’re staying with us because of an addiction or disorder. We provide medical interventions, counselling, therapy, complementary therapies and activities. The therapies we offer are diverse from acupuncture to art therapy, and one of the therapies we offer is Equine Therapy.

Equine therapy is also known as Equine-Assisted Therapy. It’s a treatment that includes equine activities or an equine environment with horses. Equine Therapy at Ocean Recovery Centre is carried out in order to promote physical, occupational and emotional well-being.

Equine Therapy is used for people with a number of conditions. At the Ocean Recovery Centre we use it for people having problems with anxiety, depression, behavioural problems and addictions. Equine Therapy can help to build confidence, perspective, social skills and impulse control. Horses have similar social and responsive behaviours to humans, which makes it is easy people to connect with the horse. Equine Therapy can help you with building relationships.

At Ocean Recovery Centre Equine Therapy is carried out in a safe and relaxing environment by qualified instructors at our recovery centre in Cyprus. Whether you’ve never ridden a horse before or if you’re an experienced rider we’ll make it an enjoyable and therapeutic experience.
