How does equine acupuncture work.

It does not work via nerves or some physical chemical or irritant response.

Here is the best way I know to explain how it works.

Consider your house. Flowing through it is air. You cannot see it but you can feel it and you certainly know when it is not there.
Within the body are also flowing airs. As you breath you are making them also ‘breath” and flow. You cannot see them. You cannot cut them and you cannot find them in a dead body. As they flow they irrigate the parts of the physical body that they flow by and have also a effect on the blood flow. They are the intelligence of the body, ‘body intelligence’. These airs are what is called chi, meaning Life or life-force.
Acupuncture has mapped these airs in detail and learned how to make use of them.

Back to our house example. If you lock the doors and windows and go away for a week or two when you return it is very stuffy . This is like an illness in the body. Clearing the illness is akin to opening the doors and windows in the house…

Treatment of abscess in horse with equine acupuncture

These points may be needled or moxaed. The result is very quick. 1-2 treatments will be needed.
Q:  What is the reason for this to work? These points are a long way from an abscess.
A: primarily abscess is caused by grief. When the tears cannot be released via the normal method they accumulate, then the toxin of the grief enters the blood and then travels down the leg trying to find a way out. Soon it is very painful. It may break out by itself externally or need help.
The points above clear the toxin from the Blood and so disperse the abscess internally.
Example; An owner came to me and said horse was lame. I suspected an abscess not yet ripened. i did these points. In morning she said,' I dont know if was the treatment or the Foot bath i gave it but horse is not lame now.'
Another example from a beginning student;
6 year old mare with a history of foot abscesses showed up dead lame. very tender a back of heel on forelimb. Diagnosis of foot abscess was made. 
Horse was needled in th…

Anatomy, fascia, chi, and the Tao , in Equine Acupuncture.

--> Anatomy, fascia, chi, and the Tao , in Equine Acupuncture.
I have a degree in Science.Western Science is still trying to catch up with what the Ancients knew, and brought down to us via Acupuncture.
Consider a recently dead horse. If you do the anatomy you will find all the parts there including the fascia. The acupuncture point LOCATIONS are still there. But there are no acupuncture points. You cannot feel them. You cannot do acupuncture on a dead horse. There is no chi. There is fascia but no chi, no life-force.
In the dead body there are no holes where the acupuncture needle could go. Actually you can put an acupunctureneedle into any part of it, it is just meat. But there will be no acupuncture effect. To be doing acupuncture and thinking in terms of a dead body is not so good. A living body is full of life, every single atom is alive, full of chi. This is very very different to a dead body.
To get an idea of what is chi, when you put your hands out and apart ,you can …
