Sessions are $75 and take 1 hour (the first session is 1 1/2 hours).
How successful is this?
Remarkably. Most animals heal in three sessions, chronic issues sometimes taking up to five. After the first session we see comfort, and within a few more sessions their issues leave together.
Are there any side effects?
Can I do this alongside Western (Conventional) Medicine?
Both Acupuncture and Acupressure use the same pathways (also called channels or meridians) and use the same points on those pathways, all of which were mapped 5,000 years ago. AcuPuncture is the use of needles on those Points. AcuPressure is the use of finger pressure on those Points. There are 12 pathways under the skin and about 360 points on those pathways. Practitioners use sets of points known to work on certain conditions, and treat blocked points on the pathways to help the whole healing system.
It is said Acupuncture/Acupressure was first observed by warriors who noticed that their horses would heal from, say, a hind leg issue, after being speared in the chest. This relationship of what points affeted what issues took a couple of centuries to map out , and the practice spread throughout many ancient cultures of the time. The most ancient text on the points are Chinese.
