Acupressure is very different than massage.

Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and focuses on imbalances that may be leading to mediocre health.  The practitioner uses finger pressure on acupoints (rather than needles used in acupuncture) to rebalance the energy along the 12 major meridians.  Rebalancing the energy can eventually help the horse to achieve improved health.   

Acupressure tends to address chronic issues, or even unexplained symptoms that keep recurring. Chinese Medicine may be able to explain puzzling symptoms because of how it connects organs and bodily activities. 

Did you know?  There are over 361 commonly-used acupressure points on the horse’s body.  Knowing how and when to use these points is a practitioner’s expertise.  Be wary of anyone who says that they are “using acupressure points” while doing other therapies especially if they have never been trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine. 

For chronic conditions, consistent biweekly or monthly appointments may be recommended.  For newly-diagnosed conditions, just a few sessions may be enough to reverse the course of the imbalance.   Never call for acupressure in emergency situations where veterinary attention is required.

Appointments are convenient.

Flexible scheduling allows for daytime, evening or weekend appointments.

On-farm appointments are offered around the Reading, PA / Berks County area as well as in the surrounding counties of Lancaster, Lebanon, Schuylkill, Lehigh, Montgomery and Chester.  Long-distance travel to other locations will be considered.

Appointments are affordable.

You are essential to a successful massage session.

  1. Plan an acupressure session during the quietest time at your farm

  2. To avoid distraction, do not schedule a session too close to feeding time

  3. Many owners find watching the sessions to be equally relaxing for themselves

  4. Allow 24 hours of rest and recovery prior to resuming activity
