Animal Acupressure is NOT intended to replace medical or veterinary healthcare.
An Animal Acupressure Practitioner cannot provide a medical diagnosis, prescribe medications,
perform surgical procedures or provide chiropractic manipulations.
Acupressure should not be used when an animal has a fever, an infection or a congestive heart condition.
Animal Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) just like acupuncture and other forms of energetic medicine. This ancient healing art is composed of a series of theories that guides the practitioner toward specifically selecting the acupoints which will most effectively resolve the pattern of disharmony a particular animal is experiencing. Dogs and cats are highly responsive to acupressure because they are very in tune with their bodies. Dogs know exactly where to scratch when they feel an itch and cat's are amazing in how they cleanse and stimulate their own energetic bodies.
