Tom is the creator of “Integrated Equine Therapies,” a highly effective approach that addresses the core causes of lameness, metabolic and emotional dysfunctions. Tom Mayes was born and raised in the mountains of the western United States. Having the freedom to explore vast open spaces left an indelible mark on him, his sense of adventure, and his great love of the natural world. Tom’s fascination with science and healing has been influenced by his father, Darrel M. Mayes, who is noted for developing the first accurate tests for hormones and was a world-renowned researcher in the field of Endocrinology. In fact, he was considered for nomination for the Nobel Prize in Science. He instilled in Tom a deep respect for scientific methods and research; and emphasized the importance of verifying results. At the age of 12, Tom would sit in lectures at the medical school near his father’s lab. He realized that for all the great achievements of modern science, something was missing, something deliberately set aside, something core. Since those days of budding awareness, Tom’s life has focused on defining and illuminating that missing essence through teaching, healing, and sharing. He continually explores weaving technique with intuition, integrating the left brain with the right brain and merging Newtonian physics with quantum physics. Regardless of the approach, however, it all comes from the heart and trusting one’s intuitive intelligence. Tom has degrees in Environmental Science and Medical Anthropology and in his previous career, spent 20 years teaching science and math to children. He has received numerous awards and is recognized as a four-time recipient of the “Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers Award.” Tom is well known for his ability to turn around chronic undiagnosed emotional, metabolic and lameness dysfunctions in 1000’s of horses. Toms’ passion is teaching Clinics and Workshops. He and his wife Yolanda; Craniosacral Therapist for the rider, teach horsemen/ women and equine professionals how to assess and clear acute and chronic conditions once thought unattainable. Graduates of Integrated Equine Therapies are among the most efficacious equine practitioners in the world. Today, through his teachings, Tom is determined to shift current paradigms and redefine and extend the boundaries of what’s possible. He specializes in communicating deeply with equus, and helping people connect and truly grasp the message their horses have for them.
