Shortly after graduating from massage school in 1988 I began searching for therapeutic modalities that were healing on a deeper level and in a more holistic way than massage does. I found that acupressure was one of these modalities. I frequently include acupressure in my sessions, combining it with Jin Shin Jyutsu and Tellington Touch.
Acupressure is a complementary healing art that supports your animal friends' health and well-being during all life stages. It applies similar principles as acupuncture and is gentle and non-invasive. Instead of needles, acupressure utilizes gentle touch over specific points along the meridians or energy pathways. This helps harmonize the energy flow in the body facilitating the body’s own healing capacity. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the balanced flow of “chi” or life force energy throughout the body promotes optimal health and healing. Acupressure is a complementary art that harmonizes body, soul and spirit of your animal friend.
Due to its non-invasive gentle nature acupressure is generally well received by animals who may not tolerate other more vigorous therapies.
Animal acupressure is not a substitute for veterinary care. It is not intended to diagnose, prescribe, treat, or cure any disease. Please consult a veterinarian for diagnosis, treatment and emergencies.
