What are Ting Points, and how do they affect a horse’s performance? Company founder Gary DesRoches was introduced to these acupressure points during the early days of Leg Saver through the book VETERINARY ACUPUNCTURE: Ancient Art to Modern Medicine. In it, a chapter written by Dr. Are Thoresen DVM of Norway on Ting-Zone Therapy inspired DesRoches to design the ever-evolving and improving protocols that are crucial to the success of Leg Saver.
Equine Ting Points
In traditional Chinese medicine, the meridian system is a set of 12 major pathways throughout the body through which energy, or “qi” flows. Ting Points are the acupressure points above the coronary band of the hooves that relate to the beginning or end of these organ meridians.
How Ting Points Affect Your Horse’s Health
Once you get to know where your horse’s Ting Points are, you can use them as a good gauge of his health. If a Ting Point is warm to the touch or swollen, chances are a sudden health issue like a respiratory infection is occurring. If a Ting Point is cold to the touch or sunken in, your horse is most likely suffering from a chronic condition such as arthritis.
Ting Point Therapy
Leg Saver has helped ease arthritic horses, along with other chronic conditions like lung bleeding, bowed tendon repair, check ligaments, hoof lameness, stifles, hocks, OCD, whirl bone, TMJ, poll and shoulder problems. Its unique waveform combined with Ting Point Therapy has been the key to rehabilitating performance horses globally for the past 15 years.
We are in good company: practitioners around the world endorse Dr. Thoresen’s Ting-Zone Therapy, and Leg Saver’s unique waveform technology is continually improving upon these protocols to become an industry favourite for treating performance horse health issues.
