One of the key players on Olympian Ingrid Klimke's team is the veterinarian Dr. Ina Gösmeier, who specializes in such methodologies as acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In Acupressure for Horses, Gösmeier shows horse owners how to use acupressure, the non-needling form of stimulating acupuncture points, to help relieve their animals' minor aches and pains and stimulate their well-being.
Beginning with explanations of the concepts of TCM and a guide to determining your horse's dominant element according to TCM principles, Gösmeier provides a step-by-step guide to this noninvasive way of helping horses feel and perform better. Ample clear color photos show the meridians, acupressure points, and techniques. USDF Connection, July/August 2017
