Restore Your Health Naturally

Animals have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. Horses especially have had a special place in my heart. I’ve always loved their innate sense of wildness, honesty, and power and at the same time the peacefulness, and ultimate presence they exude.

In my work it’s essential to look at the animal in its entirety – as a bodyworker this of course includes the animals physical state, but it is just as important to me to know the animals emotional state as well, because e-motions (‘energy in motion’) can have a massive effect on the health of the entire body.

This is why I’ve gotten my certifications in multiple different bodywork modalities, including an extensive four-year training to become an Equine Osteopath EDO®.

Why Flowing Waters?

To me, "Flowing Waters Wholistics" is more than just a name; it's a reflection of my lifelong love for water and its deep connection to healing.

Water, in all its forms, holds a special place in my heart. I've always been drawn to it, and it feels like my element. Whether I'm near the ocean or standing beside a river, the tranquility and grace of water make me feel like a weight has been lifted. It's where I can breathe more easily, where I find my peace.

The goal of any of the services we offer is to achieve a healthy homeostatic balance in the body and between all systems, so the body’s innate ability to self-correct can work as optimally as possible, bringing the body back to a healthier state. To do that we assess the mobility of every joint and the vitality of every system in the body, and then make a plan of treatment according to what we find. We have several different modalities we can use to address any lack of mobility we find in joints, organs, soft tissue, etcetera. 

We work on the body, always keeping in mind and adhering to the principles of osteopathy.

Equine Osteopathy

Osteopathy is a manual therapeutic method that focuses on finding and mobilizing restrictions that can affect all structures in the body. Any loss of mobility anywhere in the body can cause an imbalance in health.

Equine Laser Acupuncture

(Laser-)Acupuncture is powerful in addressing the energetic restrictions in the body that can be found along the meridians (energy pathways) that run throughout the entire body.

Equine Cranio-sacral Therapy

Craniosacral osteopathy gently addresses restrictions in the craniosacral system, while soft tissue bodywork addresses tension patterns across the entire body using various different techniques. Both aim to restore balance to the body.


How I work with animals during a bodywork session:

When I come to do bodywork on an animal, it is very important to me to work WITH the animal and not against it.


If you’ve ever had bodywork done yourself, you might know it’s not always comfortable – as a human we can understand that and deal with it accordingly. Our animals communicate what’s going on for them a bit differently and some animals are more direct than others. So when I am working on an animal, I take any differences in behavior or demeanor as information and adjust accordingly if necessary, but I never punish – as long as I can keep myself, the animal and the guardian safe, I just take in what the animal is saying and don’t react to it otherwise.

This means when the animal tells me they don’t like something I’m doing, I will honor what they are saying. For my sessions that means if I repeatedly get a clear no from an animal, I know there is a specific reason for them to say no to what I’m doing. And that could be as simple as the animal not being ready for that yet or it could be something else. In those instances, I might try a different approach or leave it for the next session to work on.


Bottom line is I don’t want to fight with the animal I’m working on because that won’t help achieve the healthy balance I’m striving for. Yes, I might do things the animal doesn’t like as much, but what I want to stay away from is doing things the animal's body isn’t ready to receive yet.


Fenja has worked on several of my horses and helped them feel more comfortable in their bodies. Her wholistic approach, from my perspective, has been more enlightening and gotten better results for my horses than any other type of body work or medical care I have tried. Fenja’s demeanor with the horses is compassionate and they trust her, she is clearly an experienced horse handler. She is knowledgeable about horse psychology, biomechanics, and nutrition and able to paint a full spectrum picture of their needs. I see marked improvements under saddle and behaviorally in each of my horses she has worked on. Her nutritional knowledge is absolutely on point and the best advice I have received from any horse expert, trainer or vet. I am so thankful for the work she has done on my horses and for the nutritional advice, I recommend her to every horse owner who wants their horse to live up to their full potential in comfort.
