Jodi Brassard Acupressure Clinic - Hands on 4 hour Clinic
Acupressure is a safe and effective way to participate in your horses health, internally and externally. It works off their pressure points (same as we have) and can influence the flow of blood, joint fluids, immune system boosting, etc. This is a noninvasive, yet very powerful way to get and keep your horse healthy. Acupressure derives from Traditional Chinese Medicine, and in our seminar we will specifically look at a before and after riding mini session to ensure the best and healthiest experience possible for your equine partner. Our hemp derived CBD is from the Cannabis Sativa plant specifically. We use “Full Spectrum” product only and not isolate or broad spectrum. Full Spectrum is the most pure and is a whole plant CBD, meaning that it contains CBD and other cannabinoids (less than .3% THC) , as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and active essential oils. Some benefits include reduced pain from arthritis, reduced anxiety, reduced stress, gut health, healing from surgery or injury, helping the immune system, appetite regulation, helping with inflammation, and helping with insulin resistance.
