Equine Electro-Acupressure: The Fusion of Equine Massage, Equine Acupressure and Modern Technology



Equine Electro-Acupressure is a must have DIY book for all competitive equestrians who are dedicated to enhancing their horse’s health and maximizing their horse’s athletic potential. This book teaches horsemen and women how to perform Equine Electro-Acupressure treatments on their own horses. Developed by Equine Performance Consultant, Donald Doran, the techniques presented in Equine Electro-Acupressure are a reflection of Doran’s 40+ years of hands-on experience working with a broad spectrum of equine athletes ranging from Kentucky Derby winners to Olympic contenders. Equine Electro-Acupressure is a hybrid equine bodywork modality that combines modern science and technology with ancient knowledge of massage, energy meridians and acupoints. The net effect is a fast, effective method of getting a horse out of muscular pain and maximizing her/her athletic performance without the use of drugs, surgery or invasive procedures. In the fiercely competitive world of equine sports, properly fitting equipment, cross training and frequent equine bodywork often make the difference between bringing home the prize money or coming home empty-handed. However, for many horse owners, regularly scheduled equine bodywork is often limited due to lack of availability and/or financial constraints. This book empowers motivated horse owners with the ability to use this new, revolutionary form of equine bodywork for the benefit of their own horses on a regular, cost-effective basis. Step by step instructions teach equestrians how to use a TENS unit to provide their horses with muscle and acupoint stimulation previously only available through a professional acupuncture session. The book provides treatment plans, full color photographs and location descriptions of muscle points and acupoints used to treat the following common problem areas in the performance horse: Upper and Lower Neck, Mid and Lower Back, Shoulders, Hindquarters, Hamstrings, Quadriceps and Stifles. When the stakes are high, Doran relies on Equine Electro-Acupressure in his own practice to treat Olympic competitors and championship horses. Doran offers training in this modality to horsemen and women as part of the Equine Sports Therapy course curriculum at Animal Dynamics.
