ACUPRESSURE & Tui Na

The goal of working with acupressure-massage is to restore, replenish, and maintain the natural harmony and balance needed in animal and human bodies to create optimal health and well-being.

Conventional western and eastern medicines’ scientific studies and clinical observation have proven that acupressure can:

  • Relieve muscle spasms

  • Build the immune system

  • Benefit chronic health issues

  • Strengthen muscles, tendons, joints, and bones

  • Balance energy to optimize the body’s natural ability to heal

  • Release natural cortisone to reduce swelling and inflammation

  • Release endorphins necessary to increase energy or relieve pain

  • Enhance mental clarity and calm required for focus in training and performance

  • Resolve injuries more readily by increasing the blood supply and removing toxins.

I have completed the theory study of Acupressure & TCM online and their hands on practicum. I am currently completing case studies to become a fully certified practitioner. My next step is to take the NBCAAM exam to become board certified before completing Tui-Na (acupressure massage) training.

As well as working through the certification process with Tallgrass Acupressure Institute, I have learned meridian balancing and photopuncture (acupoint work with laser or red light) during my massage & cold laser/redlight certification with Dr Angelique Barbara (Angel's Holistic Animals). Acupoint work is also a big part of the Photonic Health & Photonic Therapy Institute Training that I have also taken. All of these certifications blend very well together into a working knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and its therapeutic application in equines. TCM however is a lifetime of study, and something I will continue learning more about forever!

There are benefits to using acupressure and photopuncture over needles, especially with horses that are needle sensitive.
