Animal Acupressure

The body has a natural balance.  When the body gets out of balance it can result in pain and other medical conditions.

Acupressure is a therapy developed thousands of years ago as an important aspect of Chinese medicine.  It is the application of pressure with the thumb or fingers to the same distinct points on the body as acupuncture.   When applying pressure along energy meridians it creates a stimulating therapeutic effect.  There are over 361 acupressure points located throughout the body.  These points have various functions used to address issues including, but not limited to:

  • pain and lameness

  • neurological disorders

  • skin disorders

  • behavioral disorders

  • reproductive disorders

  • gastrointestinal disorders (including Colic)

  • immune system function

  • stress

Acupressure may also lead to the improvement of quality of life in older pets and cancer patients.

Acupressure is safe, effective, and non-invasive.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – “Rei” which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and “Ki” which is "life force energy".   If one's "life force energy" is low, then one is more likely to get sick or feel stress.  If it is high, one is more capable of being happy and healthy.

 

Reiki is a light, non-manipulative touch technique for stress reduction, relaxation, and a feeling of peace, security, and wellbeing.  It also promotes healing and balance throughout the body, emotions, mind, and spirit.  It is a simple, natural, and safe method of spiritual healing and it has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady.  Reiki creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Many humans have reported miraculous results. For this reason several medical facilities such as hospitals and hospice care are now using Reiki with their patients. That is why I incorporate it into each of my animal wellness sessions.
