In this newsletter I teach you how to find and use Governing Vessel 26 (GV 26), an acupressure point that’s been shown to restart the heart and breathing in cases of shock and cardiac arrest. It’s also used to relieve pain and calm the horse’s spirit. To explain the benefits of Governing Vessel 26, I share writings from four veterinarians and tell the amazing stories of horse owners who used the point to help horses in distress. Be sure to read about Tilly, a quarter horse mare who collapsed on a mountain trail. Acupressure by horse woman and equine body worker Tamara Yates was the key to Tilly’s survival.
All the best to you and your family for a great 2014 –

Help Diana find Casper the Rescue Horse a New Home

Casper is a young quarter horse gelding that Diana has been helping for the past 18 months. He suffered injuries during a difficult birth that left him with odd gaits at the walk and trot and choosing to avoid the canter completely. Veterinarians concluded he would never perform as a cutting horse and euthanasia was suggested. Fortunately, Casper’s owners contacted Diana for help and Casper has responded beautifully to her rehabilitation program. He is now moving almost normally, carrying a rider with pride. He will be four years old March 5, 2014.
Diana is creating a comprehensive instructional DVD that will show horse owners how to do equine acupressure.

New review from Cheryl Schwartz, DVM, author, Four Paws, Five Directions, A Guide to Chinese Medicine for Cats and Dogs:
"Diana Thompson’s book Acupressure Point Charts for Horses is fabulous for all horse people who want to learn about keeping their horses vital, flexible and healthy. For veterinarians and other horse professionals interested in Chinese Medicine, acupressure and massage, the book offers some of the best photos I’ve seen for locating meridians and points. For lay people, this book is user friendly, with its layout and practical, precise explanations. Being an educator and author for twenty years, and a holistic veterinarian for thirty, I fully appreciate the work and effort that went into the making of this book. Hats off to you, Diana!"
