Tuscon teen, Holly Hitchcock describes how hippotherapy helps her find relief from tics-
"I have less tics, fewer muscle spasms and am sleeping better at night since starting hippotherapy.
At first I wasn’t sure how hippotherapy would help me. But I’ve discovered I can get into a mental “zone” where I can let go and almost forget I have Tourette’s for periods of time!
I am very grateful to Mary Vardi, Cheryl North, TROT and the Dillon Foundation, which helped pay my scholarship fees."
