Acupressure, a bodywork technique based in Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a non-invasive approach to preventive care and pain management. Providing acupressure to your own dog and to the dogs in your care will allow you to play an important role in their overall mental and physical health and well-being.  Acupressure can be used alone or combined with other modalities and is ideal for any dog at any stage of life.  This workshop will provide you with the basic tools to immediately give the dogs in your care a simple, but effective, acupressure session using points that deliver a boost to the immune system and specifically focus on musculoskeletal soreness, calming, and overall relaxation and comfort care.

This is a Continuing Education course that can be taken at any time.  No prerequisites.  Appropriate for pet professionals and pet parents alike.
