Jodi Brassard Acupressure Clinic  - Hands on 4 hour Clinic

 May 30th, 2021

"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 look at a number of solutions for common issues.  Our equines are our friends, athletes, therapists, and babysitters, so lets get them to their best “happy and healthy” selves!"

1. Clinic is from 9am - 1pm at Scissortail Hill 9513 S HWY 183, Austin, TX 78747

Manda works with all riders from beginners to upper levels, and everything in between. Whether you are a trail rider, Jumper, pleasure, or Dressage rider (and anything else) you can benefit from Manda's eyes and teachings.
