Equine Acupressure - Sydney Areas, NSW Australia
The source of Acupressure is in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is based on the concept of Chi (Qi), a life-energy flowing throughout the body. Chi flows through energetic pathways (meridians) keeping everything functioning in the body. When these energy flows are disrupted physical symptoms develop.
Chi can be influenced at certain parts known as acupoints. By holding pressure on these acupoints, energy flow can be released and/or strengthened restoring balance and health to the horse.
