Woman and dog for acupressure

Healing hands for animals

​Like acupuncture, acupressure was originally developed in China thousands of years ago. It follows exactly the same principles as acupuncture but uses the therapist’s fingers rather than needles to stimulate specific pressure points around the body to improve health and wellbeing.

​Applying gentle but firm finger pressure to the body’s acupoints helps to release muscle tension, strengthen the immune system and promote blood circulation to aid healing. Like acupuncture, acupressure can help many different species with everything from pain relief to fertility problems.

Another great benefit of acupressure is its soothing effect on stress. By helping to relax the animal that is being treated with acupressure it helps them to stimulate their natural resistance to disease and promote their overall wellbeing.
