Michelle Patton, EqDt
Michelle's Motto: Changing Lives 3 Molecules at a Time!
Michelle Patton, EqDt, has been riding horses since she was two years old. Her entire life has been immersed in horses, and they are in her blood. At an early age, Michelle began searching for alternative healing methods for her equine counterparts. She earned a degree in Equine Science, and her coursework included Equine Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, and Equine Dentistry. At the same time, Michelle also earned a nursing degree.
Michelle was introduced to ozone therapy when one of her horses (Marcus) developed Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM), and every veterinarian she consulted with about Marcus’s health recommended he be euthanized. Not willing to give up, one of Michelle’s friends told her about ozone, so, skeptically, Michelle gave it a try. After the first ozone treatment, Marcus showed some improvement, and, after six months of ozone therapy, EPM Acupuncture, and herbs, Marcus displayed NO signs of EPM. Marcus’s amazing recovery inspired Michelle to learn as much as possible about ozone therapy. Her persistence in this area has resulted in a successful career in the field to which her heart belongs--equine healing.
To date, Michelle has administered over 2,500 ozone therapy treatments to horses from all around the country, many of which have returned to professional competition.
Stephen has enjoyed a long career in the service industry with over three years of experience in educating, serving, and training veterinarians on how to successfully incorporate medical ozone therapy into their practices.

An avid outdoorsman, Stephen enjoys golfing and college sports (Go Bucks!). He is married to his college sweetheart (ask him how they met sometime) with whom he shares two adult daughters. He and his wife also have a Jack Russell-Yorkie mix named Tillie (a byproduct of a scandalous affair) and a yellow Labrador Retriever named Tobias.
