It is finally here! The world’s first textbook on reflexology and acupressure for dogs has just been published. The book describes where the dog’s reflex areas are located on the paws clearly and in details, using both text and figures. The technique used on the paws is also carefully described. The different systems are gone through e.g. the nervous system and the immune system. The reader are introduced to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), which is the theoretical background for both reflexology and acupressure. Face reflexology, acupressure, treatment of the meridians and homeopathy are also gone through. Several experts within the veterinary field have contributed with the necessary western knowledge for the book. Read more about the book.
