Equine Acupressure 

Equine Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is a non-invasive, deceptively gentle yet profoundly powerful modality for the benefit and well-being of horses.


TCM is based on thousands of years of clinical observation and is empirical in nature. The Chinese relied on their knowledge of how beings function within their environment day-to-day, season-to-season, and in each phase-of-life. The question they asked is: ‘How well is this animal functioning within his/her environment?’ The purpose of Chinese medicine is always focused on health and to help the body adapt to the constant environmental and internal changes.  

TCM is composed of theories that were developed over thousands of years to:

  • Relief muscle spasms

  • Build the immune system

  • Strengthen muscles, tendons, joints and bones

  • Balance energy to optimize the bodies natural ability to heal

  • Release endorphins necessary to increase energy or relief pain

  • Enhance mental clarity and calm required for focus in training

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


TCM considers health as a dynamic balance of internal physical and emotional functions interacting with external environmental factors in complete synchronicity. Equine Acupressure practitioners identify patterns and use acupressure-massage to help horses feel and preform at their best.
