Equine Acupressure Benefits

Acupressure originated with Traditional Chinese Medicine and from thousands of years of studying and mapping of how the body, whether human or animal, remains in balance internally and within its environment.  Ultimate health is achieved when one is in balance physically, emotionally, and mentally.  When any of these are out of balance, illness and disease can set in. 

For over 4,000 years, acupressure has been used to maintain the health of horses.  Its many benefits include:

  • Improving body flexibility and mobility
  • Strengthening muscles, tendons, joints, and bones
  • Relieving pain by releasing endorphins
  • Reducing swelling and inflammation by releasing natural cortisones
  • Increasing blood supply and removing toxins to assist in resolving injuries
  • Enhancing mental clarity required for focus in training and performance
  • Reducing fear, anxiety, and stress
  • Dealing with issues of aging and past injuries
  • Building the immune system

Acupressure is not, nor intended to be, a substitute for traditional veterinary care.  It is a complementary form of health care.  The client should regularly consult a veterinarian in matters related to his or her horse's health and especially in regards to any symptoms which may require diagnosis or medical attention.
