Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

I am ceritifeid by IVAS (International Veterinary Acupuncture Society) as a veterinary acupuncturist since 1990. I have found that you can use essenial oils to stimulate and balance energy in the body by applying them on acupunture points on the body.

One of the easiest ways to do this is to go down the back of the animal putting light pressure a 1/2 inch off the spine and noting Ashi points (OUCH points) They will flinch, skin will spasm or the pet will turn around and look at you or bite you.

Once you find these points, you can massage Lavender, Valor or Frankincense into the point once per day until you see the ASHI point no longer be sensitive.

I have also done this on the reflexology points of the bottoms of their feet. You simply massage the oil into all of their pads once or twice per day, and up to the hock.

Another technique I have done, is use the TING points, which are around the nail beds of all paws. Just massage a drop either concentrated or expanded depending upon the patient's tollerance one to two times per day until the issues are resolved.
