My lovely little friend Holly has put in a request for dogs today. ‘What about us? About us dogs? It’s important to let dog lovers know about the aspirin acupressure spot on us too!’ Holly is very funny. Five years ago, she’s the reason I returned to Canada, from working with elephants in Thailand. She had surgery and had both hind knees replaced and had requested my return to give her Reiki and acupressure to speed up her recovery. She’s a trooper, she went from slow hobble to chasing her squeaky toys in no time flat. She has aged and slowed some since, but still loves playing everyday. Every few days, she’ll sit at my feet and want some healing. So, I blend Reiki and acupressure together into a treatment. She loosens, stretches out, relaxes and soaks it up.
The benefit of being able to hear Holly, is that she often asks me to work a particular point, she will guide me through a session. She has often requested BL60, which is the Aspirin Acupressure Point. It’s a natural pain reliever, relaxes muscles, eases headaches, is great for pain in the back, hind limbs and ankles, and can assist in labor. All right at your fingertips!
