Shiatsu For Horses
Nick Goody, Shiatsu
for Horses Practitioner
||Shiatsu is a traditional
Japanese bodywork therapy based on pressure and stretches and in this set of
newsletters, we will feature specific meridians (the same lines that
acupuncture would use, except with Shiatsu you use your thumbs and fingers) and
explain how you can stimulate various parts of the body. Please note that
shiatsu is not a replacement treatment to veterinary care. Your vet is your
first port of call and should always be consulted first if you have any doubts
about your horse's health.
In Japanese shi means finger and
atsu means pressure. Literally translated, Shiatsu means finger
pressure - a pressure that gently stimulates the bodys natural healing
In Shiatsu there are twelve meridians each of
which can have a powerful effect on balancing your horses health.
Horses Back and the Bladder Meridian.
