Canine Acupressure

What is Canine Acupressure?

Acupressure for dogs stimulates precise therapeutic points in your pet's body to alleviate pain, symptoms of disease and promote good health. To do this practitioners may use; finger or palm pressure, heat, friction and soothing. It is often referred to as an alternative, integrative, complementary, natural and / or holistic medicine.

How does it work?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) describes Chi as a life 'force' or 'energy' that flows around your pet's body using invisible pathways called meridians. Imbalances of Chi in the meridians can cause symptoms of 'dis-ease' in your pet's body. Acupressure points are located along the meridians. Practitioners stimulate these points to influence the flow of Chi and correct imbalances. Restoring balance to your pet, enables their body to heal itself, curing existing and preventing future 'dis-ease'.

When I come in to see you, I'm always wound up tight as a knot - and when I leave it feels like I'm floating on a cloud!
