The benefits of using animals to care for people with motor difficulties and social relationships are already recognized by Medicine
São Paulo, May 2019 – Studies from the US Cardiology American Journal have shown that living with animals helps control stress, lowers blood pressure, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular problems. The medicine went beyond and today, special patients are counting on the help of the little animals for treatments of spinal cord injuries, autism and even attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
A reality that will be presented at the 16th Reatech – International Fair of Technologies in Rehabilitation, Inclusion and Accessibility through the workshop Equoterapia and the Pet Therapy Course. According to Liana Pires Santos, a psychologist, representative of ANDE-BRASIL (National Equine Therapy Association) and director of the GATI (Integrated Therapeutic Approach Group), which will participate in both events, 100 vacancies will be offered for each activity. “The events will be open to students, professionals and visitors who are interested in the therapeutic processes involving the man / animal relationship.”
The Equine Therapy workshop will take place on Saturday, June 15. “Let’s take the news in equine therapy legislation. After all, it is a therapeutic method performed with horses that is already recognized by the Federal Council of Medicine and recently had a law passed in Congress that waits only for presidential sanction. “It’s an update workshop in the area. In addition to being open to professionals and students, it is the beginning for the interested person to know about horse therapy, “says Liana.
As in other editions of the event, the psychopedagogue remembers that there will be a track inside the fair for presentations of the therapy. “Reatech is a pioneer in indoor horse riding for riding experiences, demonstrating the three-dimensional movement of equine rehabilitation. Before we did the mounts in the outer area. But a few years ago the track was set up inside the pavilion. ”
“This is an introductory course aimed at the public interested in the areas of health and education that want to act with differentiated therapies,” explains Liana about the course that will take place on June 16 from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. “Animal assisted therapy incorporates human and animal interaction, in a formal therapeutic process, guided by professionals with specific objectives.”
The pet course at Reatech is open to all students, professionals or family members who are interested in the therapeutic processes involving the man / animal relationship. “The objective of the course is to present therapeutic methods and experiences in the area of Animal-Assisted Interventions (IAA),” he says.
