Where do I go for a session?
We come to you! If your horse is at a barn, we can meet you there! If your dog lives with you, we can can meet you there too! If you are uncomfortable with in home visits, we sometimes set up at pet stores in town to allow you and your pet to come see us there, so watch our facebook events for the next time we will be in store! If you think your dog would be calm in an outdoor setting, we can meet at a public park and have a session there. We have a soft cushion mat that can be used outdoors so your pet has a nice place to lay while getting a session!
How often should my pet have sessions?
It depends! If your pet is experiencing unbalanced conditions, you might need more sessions until your animal becomes balanced again. We recommend a acupressure and red light sessions every other day for 1-2 weeks when starting out. Then a maintence sessions once a week to once every other week. If your pet has an injury, consult your veterinarian first, then call us to boost the healing process. We are complimentary to the veterinarian's recommendations and preventative care (before anything occurs).
What does 'Poll to Pastern' mean?
Basically, it means head to toe! Since the business started services for horses, it was named after the anatomical features on the horse. Poll means the top of the horse's head, while pastern is the area right above the hoof. So, we provide head to toe holistic services for your horse, dog and cat!
Where can I learn how to use acupressure?
We teach classes for pet and horse owners! Usually, we set up classes for dog owners at local pet shops. That way you can come to the store with your dog to learn! For horse owners, we travel to barn locations to teach clinics!
Does it hurt my pet?
Both acupressure and red light therapy are pain free! Acupressure is not invasive (no needles!) and red light therapy uses cold laser technology (doesn't get hot) to promote healing!
