Jock and Ivanna Ruddock

Equine Touch is a myofascial release therapy for horses that they teach horse owners all over the world.

Dr. Groves has completed levels 1-4 of Equine Touch with Jock and Ivanna Ruddock. She uses the Equine Touch moves to relax muscles before applying osteopathic techniques, and to release muscle spasms.

I would like to pay tribute to the late Jock Ruddock, who was instrumental in my move toward holistic medicine. He was a great man, a fabulous and inspirational teacher, and my good friend. His wife, Ivanna; continues their work in Equine Touch. For more information on Equine Touch for horse owners and veterinarians go to:
