Greater Good Points who we are...
Greater Good Points focuses on Equine and Canine Bodywork which incorporates assessment skills to treat symptoms through anatomical considerations, western physiology, eastern and energetic concepts. Nancy provides sessions with horses and dogs - Body checkups show us what the body can and can't do. Primary cause analysis tells us why. TBT Alignment related to motility, fluid pressures and tensions, resets internal mechanisms back to normal (ie no muscle memory).
This specific work was influenced through study with Renee Tucker who developed her Tucker BioKinetic Alignment Technique. TBT is designed to solve problems that are considered unsolvable. TBT works with the animal's own immune system, biomechanical feedback loops, and neurovasculature mechanisms. Only by realigning the body's internal settings to "normal" can the animal return to optimal health and performance.
TBT falls under the umbrella of "energy-work". Even though we're not using our own energy, we are modulating the animal's energetical motilities.
It is a two-handed technique. That means that each hand is doing something different at the same time. This requires a strong mental focus, the horse processes and will realign. Many times only one treatment is needed. Multilayered complex issues may take several visits.
Masterson Method® - Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork and other modalities practiced include Acupressure, Physical and Energy Healing, Red Light, Cold Laser, Equine Massage and Essential Oils.
Nancy specifically teaches pre-work for owners, handlers to better their awareness, intent and connection. Equine and Canine Bodywork incorporates assessment skills, TCM meridians and acupressure points.
We are affiliated with Greater Good Ranch, LLC.

By following the horse’s responses, you are able to access that part of the horse’s nervous system that allows it to release deep levels of tension in the connective tissues of key junctions of the body. These are the junctions that most affect, and are most affected by work and performance. When these junctions release tension, the muscles around them release tension. You can palpably feel this release, and the horse tells you through his responses when this has happened. It is truly an interactive process that will improve relationship, enhance communication, and maximize performance with your horse.
First session. Mules are thinkers, they need time so take the time it takes, allow them to feel and focus on their body, and release tension. Why does light touch work so well? The Dermis, the layer below the Epidermis, contains two common types of nerve receptor cells. Thermo receptors respond to heat and cold while Mechano receptors respond to light pressure. These points are held gently in specific sequences to help the body achieve and maintain optimum form and function. Light touch also talks to the nerves. As we are aware, the discomfort problem we see/feel is not the preliminary problem, it typically is the compensation. By allowing the mule, horse, dog, person to relax muscle groups, we release the tightness/brace/tension, AKA 'coat of armor'. This allows the blood to flow, muscles to oxygenate and body to realign itself. This affects the mind, emotions and physical state of being, AKA our health.
