Acupressure DVD – A safe way to give my horse therapeutic support

In contrast to acupuncture,
acupressure can be used safely by
anybody - as long as he or she has
been given proper instruction as to
how to do it. And that is exactly what
the DVD 'Acupressure - A safe way to
give your horse therapeutic support'
sets out to do.


The DVD provides an introduction to
equine acupressure treatment as well as showing a wide variety of simple but very effective treatment points which you can easily integrate into your daily routine. In many cases it takes only a few minutes a day to make a marked improvement to your horse's well-being as well as helping it to become fitter, more resilient and robust, both physically and psychologically. The exercises are also an excellent way of increasing your awareness of your horse and how it is feeling. This in turn improves your confidence in each other.

  • Troubleshooting: possible causes when a condition fails to improve

Acupressure can be applied by anybody who has been given proper instruction. The DVD 'Acupressure - A safe way to give your horse therapeutic support' provides a straightforward introduction to acupressure treatment which you can give to your own horse. In the acupressure seminars participants receive personal, individually tailored guidance and further instruction to extend the range of support and treatment which they can give their horses. The seminars can be held in English.
