Equine Acupressure Sessions:

First we will find a place that is safe and comfortable for your horse so they are at ease and can enjoy the full benefits of the session.

The approach is key when working with horses and acupressure. Horses appreciate being given control of the session: in other words, being allowed to say "yes" or "no" to the session as well as determining the way the session will unfold. We will always honor the Horses wishes.

  • We always begin by asking permission of the horse directly, or by setting an intention that we are open to facilitate the healing process for the horse for as much energy as they are open to receive, or none at all (this is a form of permission).
  • We want to make sure the horse is in a safe, comfortable and quiet environment. Stall, pen pasture anywhere he or she feels at ease and can relax
  • We will run through the four assessments before beginning the session
  • Each session begins with the opening, then point work and the closing
  • We always allow the horse to move freely in the session space. By paying attention to what the horse is telling us by their behavior about how he or she wants to be given the session
  • Horses appreciate a passive and open approach. By "offering" acupressure in a non-assertive manner, we create a sacred space which the horse can move into and out of freely, if he or she wants to participate in the healing session
  • The length of the session is always determined by the horse; it may be as short as 15 minutes or as long as sixty minutes

After we finish the session, we always thank the horse for their participation in the session and see if they have any insight for us to discuss with their owner or trainer.
