Small points, great effects—specific acupuncture points can be stimulated gently, but extremely effectively, just by using finger pressure. Dr. Med. Vet. Ina Gösmeier, who has specialized in Traditional Chinese Medicine for over 30 years, explains how you can keep your horse healthy or help when he is unwell by using acupressure. Acupressure, as opposed to acupuncture, can be learned and applied by equine caretakers with no medical accreditation. Dr. Gösmeier shows important acupressure points on the horse and describes their effect. Using case studies, she examines concrete problems and explains how every horse owner can support horse health and well being through acupressure.
