Jean's years of being a human bodyworker and her lifelong passion for horses made for a natural transition into her current path and practice of Holistic Equine Well Being modalities. In 2015 she became a certified Equine Practitioner through her studies at Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. She believes that acupressure is a gentle, non-invasive touch process that can help a horse with body awareness, gain trust, release pain and help dissipate anxiety. Acupressure requires slowing down to communicate with the horse in a non verbal, tactile way and she feels humbled and truly honored to explore and share this technique.
She values all beliefs and practices that allow for balance and harmony as living beings.
Her goals are to continue to learn and grow her craft, while offering her services to the local community.
Henrietta Laustsen, Equine Acupressure Practitioner, NBCAAM
Wellspring Animal Acupressure, LLC
Wellspring Farm, North Plains, OR
Henrietta has always been filled with a sense of wonder about the world, and a soul-deep love for animals. She grew up with horses, dogs and cats, and S brings much more than healing but a kinship with the horse that is remarkable. Her background includes a Ph.D. in geophysics and twenty-six years of teaching physical sciences. Studying equine acupressure and learning about the principles of TCM have given Henrietta a way to understand and work with the energetic connection to animals that she has always felt. She earned her Equine Acupressure certification through Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute in 2014, becoming nationally certified through NBCAAM shortly thereafter. In honor of her beloved rescued Percheron, Gabriel, Henrietta offers "Gabriel's Touch", donating her services at little or no charge to rescues and therapeutic riding centers.
