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!"
