Today we have a guest post that talks about an ailment I think many animal owners can relate to – allergies. In this case study, the practitioner uses acupressure (which I have described in more depth in my earlier “Alternative Healing Modality: Acupressure” post) to provide allergy relief for a horse.
Yes, horses have allergies too. Domesticated horses are impacted by the environment we have created for them, and we are seeing far more allergic reactions than ever before. Leeann “Lu” Garnas, a 2009 graduate of the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute (www.animalacupressure.com), has written a case study that may be helpful to other horses with reactions to inhalant and contact allergens.
Meet Lu Garnas

In addition to acupressure, Lu is also a certified sports massage therapist specializing in performance and rehabilitation cases, working closely with surgical and rehabilitative teams to return horses to their careers and maintain a high level of performance. A few years ago, she added natural barefoot trimming to her tool belt to help the horses be more comfortable in their work and daily life. Lu specialties take her around the West, traveling to Colorado, Wyoming, Oregon, and California…so far.
