Healing Hands: Equine acupressure and first aid by Dominique Giniaux, DVM
This book is about equine acupressure: the art of alleviating your horse’s physical, and even mental problems by applying pressure with your thumb or index finger on specific points of acupuncture. Without interfering with your veterinarian, whose intervention remains
necessary in most cases, you will in this way be able to check the course of colic, help your mare in foaling, help your horse overcome heat stroke, a crisis of emphysema, a hemorrhage, a bout of “tying up,” and more.
Just as human first aid does not compete with, but rather complements medical care by saving precious time before the intervention of the
physician, equine acupressure first aid can spare your horse the worst as the veterinarian is en route to your barn.
Read the indications given by Dr. Ginaux carefully, apply them tactfully, and you will be astounded by the results!
Enthusiastic, curious, and brilliant, Dr. Giniaux is a researcher who passionately tries to understand, not only with his brain but also with his heart and senses, the exhilarating phenomenon called “life.”
Dominique Giniaux D.V.M. is also the author of Equine Osteopathy: What the Horses Have Told Me, [Xenophon Press 2014] a natural complement
to this book.
Dr. Dominique Giniaux started his career as an allopathic veterinarian in 1968 and went on treating horses in a “classical” manner until 1981. Although very respectful of, and adept at, this established knowledge, he later turned to “holistic” medicines, like acupuncture and osteopathy, which he studied first on humans. Dr. Giniaux was the first in the world to practice structural osteopathy with the equine. His fame soon became international when he was called to lecture outside of France to the United States for the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society.
