Acupressure for Dogs

Acupressure and acupuncture are key components of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), a system of healing that dates back approximately 3000 years. The only difference between acupressure and acupuncture is that acupressure uses the practitioner’s fingertips to apply pressure to specific points on the body, and acupuncture uses needles inserted into the body at those points. They are equally effective. You must be a licensed veterinarian to practice acupuncture.

How does acupressure work?

It releases blocked or congested energy, which in turn releases muscle tension and diffuses toxic buildup, promoting blood and energy circulation, allowing the body to heal naturally.

While acupressure can successfully help to resolve chronic problems, its intent is preventative, either by maintaining health through regular treatments, or by resolving a problem in the early stages before it becomes chronic or serious. The emphasis is on healing the whole body and seeking the root cause of an illness, rather than simply treating the current symptom.
