The Whole Horse Podcast | Episode 58 | Chinese Medicine and Acupressure for horses with Susan Tenney

What a joy of a podcast episode! Susan Tenney of Elemental Acupressure brought her passion and expertise to our time together, sharing about how her journey with horses and acupressure began, how she works with Chinese medicine concepts and horses, some ways to begin using acupressure simply and effectively with your horses. It was a pleasure to learn from her, and I hope you feel the same.

Susan’s students and clients say that she positively shines when she works. Her love of animals comes through in everything she does. To illustrate her ideas, Susan can be theatrical – making an idea come alive by panting like a happy dog or drooping her head and sighing like a horse relaxing into a massage. These images stay with students, helping them integrate ancient Chinese Medical concepts into their modern day lives. To Susan, Five Element acupressure for animals is so insightful and powerful that it seems wondrous. She passes on that sense of wonder to her students, clients, and readers.

Susan feels strongly that massage and acupressure are for everyone – not just the “experts”. This you- can-do-it attitude carries over into her classes where she delights in demystifying Chinese Medicine and Five Element theory. Her deep experience and gentle touch makes her very popular with her students and readers as well as her four-legged clients! Susan teaches the Shiatsu, acupressure and Five Element theory courses. She is the co-founder of Elemental Acupressure along with her husband, Jonathan Cohn.
