Jan sought to find a way to help her Insulin Resistant horses become more balanced and healthy. Traditional Chinese Medicine has answers to chronic conditions and lameness that mystify conventional veterinary medicine. She is a Certified Equine (2011) and Small Animal (2012) Acupressure Practitioner Helping the animal heal is the goal. When there is imbalance, like disease or lameness, the body can stay in the unbalanced state out of habit. Acute problems can be addressed before tissues are damaged. Acupressure and Reiki help the healing process by opening the energy flow to health and soundness.
