Ultimately my search to learn animal acupressure lead me on to the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute's website. I signed up for the Small Animal / Canine Practitioner training and haven't looked back.
Caroline Dalkin, Equine Acupressure Practitioner
01 296 651301
Caroline has been training both competition and pleasure horses for over fifteen years and manages her own livery yard, Liberation Farm. The focus of the yard is on horses being able to live their own lives in a more natural environment. The success of Liberation Farm has led to the opening of a second barn specifically designed for horses in need of physical or emotional healing. As a Tallgrass Equine Acupressure Practitioner, Caroline also combines Herbalism, Reiki & Homeopathy with the art of listening. The combination of all of these sessions along with a healthy dose of laughter and common sense provides the perfect balance for the horses and their "people".
