Kinetic Balance was created to provide a holistic, pain free approach to physical therapy, focusing on finding and treating the cause of any problem rather than simply managing its symptoms. With a passion for teaching people how to improve their flexibility, balance and posture at any age, for working with equestrians and their horses, and for finding solutions to chronic conditions that were not resolved by traditional therapies.
I provide Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy. PEMF therapy works at the cellular level to produce optimum cellular energy and health which is necessary for proper or accelerated healing of every anatomical part of the body. If we help the cells, we can help everything! A pulsating magnetic field or PEMF is said to produce one main result: stimulating cell metabolism and increasing oxygenation. This action is thought to cause a chain of processes in the body that leads to improvement of health without side effects. Some of the effects of PEMF are: increased circulation, enhanced muscle function, decreased inflammation and pain, increased tensile strength in ligaments, increased healing of skin wounds, enhanced capillary formation, accelerated nerve regeneration and bone healing, less tissue death, stress reduction, and bone healing. In equines, PEMF therapy can be used for: back pain, abscesses and bruised foot soles, muscle soreness/fatigue/atrophy, stifle osteoarthritis and synovitis, fetlocks and pastern joint osteoarthritis and synovitis, white line disease, carpal pain and bursitis, flexor and extensor tendonitis, suspensory ligament and ligament branch desmitis, sesamoiditis, coffin joint synovitis, navicular syndrome and navicular bone bursitis, poll osteoarthritis and nuchal ligament calcification, EPM, Anhidrosis, Cushings disease, laminitis, and founder.

Riding to Recovery
Horses and healing for sick children
Riding to Recovery is a program now open under the direction of Lucia DiBenedetto at Stonelea Farm in Aldie, Virginia, providing emotional and spiritual healing using the horse. This program is dedicated to serving children with illnesses versus disabilities as one would find at a traditional therapeutic riding center. Children faced with acute illnesses, where medical treatments and endless hospital visits are an integral part of their life, need a mental as well as physical reprieve from their pain.
Riding to Recovery provides children with a much-needed pleasurable outlet and gives them an identity outside of being ill. Horseback riding, along with the close relationships children build through working with horses, is a life-affirming journey toward wellness.
We want to take care of your horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, and zebras for a long, long time. That’s why Total Equine Veterinary Associates has a singular goal: provide the very best healthcare and service to our equine patients and their owners. We’ve haven’t failed to notice that our health care approach ensure our patients live longer, healthier lives. It’s what drives each member of the TEVA team!
