Acupressure, a bodywork technique based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a non-invasive approach to preventive care. Providing Acupressure to your own dog will allow you to play an important role in your dog’s overall mental and physical health and wellbeing. The goal of this work is to restore and maintain the harmonious flow of Chi energy in the body, thus helping your dog achieve a state of balance. Acupressure is ideal for any dog at any stage of life.
In this 2 hour introductory hands-on class, you will learn the basics of Chi energy and how it flows through energetic pathways called meridians. You will also learn how to apply gentle pressure on specific superficial acupressure points to enhance this energy flow. The class will provide you with the basic tools to provide your dog a simple, but effective, at-home session using acupressure points that specifically focus on musculoskeletal soreness, calming, and overall relaxation and comfort care.
