Animal Acupressure Programs

amyTallgrass has served the human and animal community for over 25 years through animal acupressure books, manuals, meridian charts, videos, and extensive Hands-on and Online training programs. We are constantly expanding our programs and products to increase everyone’s knowledge of acupressure and other forms of energetic medicine. Our intent is to provide the best learning tools and training programs to give animal guardians, trainers, and healthcare practitioners access to this powerful healing modality.

The goal of practicing acupressure is to restore, replenish, and maintain the natural harmony and balance needed in animal and human bodies to create optimal health and well-being.

Conventional western and eastern medicines’ scientific studies and clinical observation have proven that acupressure can:

  • Relieve muscle spasms
  • Build the immune system
  • Benefit chronic health issues
  • Strengthen muscles, tendons, joints, and bones
  • Balance energy to optimize the body’s natural ability to heal
  • Release natural cortisone to reduce swelling and inflammation
  • Release endorphins necessary to increase energy or relieve pain
  • Enhance mental clarity and calm required for focus in training and performance
  • Resolve injuries more readily by increasing the blood supply and removing toxins.
