  1. Kathy Kellison

    “My horse is an extremely sensitive thoroughbred. He lets you know right away if he doesn’t like something. Remarkably, he relaxed with acupressure on six of the eight points in Diana’s new book Acupressure Methods for Horses.

    When I follow the how-to instructions and touch the points my horse lowers his head and then he softens. I can feel him slow within himself. There is a softness and stillness that comes over him. Thank you for your work and the opportunity to learn from your book. This is a useful new resource that I’m adding to my horse care program.”

    “Acupressure Methods for Horses is well written. It progresses logically and is easy to understand. The photos are good and the frequent reference to other pages is very helpful. The reader is given the option of diving into the hands-on portion very quickly, without having to wade through too many pages, or digging down deeper into the mechanics and concepts. I rate this book very highly. I can see where as a writer it would be easy to get bogged down in the minutiae of details and lose the reader without ever getting to the point – Diana succeeds in avoiding that. Bravo!”

    Julie Rogers, Gilroy, California
