LASER THERAPY AND ACUPUNCTURE ON HORSES: THERAPY PLANS

(by Anja Füchtenbusch and Peter Rosin) 

Acupuncture and laser therapy are energetic treatment methods which complement one another nicely and are also applied successfully in horse therapy. The book was written with users in mind who are looking for a fast and direct introduction to practical application. It therefore focuses on important indications, presenting effective combination therapies for them with laser and acupuncture which can be applied immediately. The treatments are based on recommendations by Peter Rosin, a pioneer in holistic veterinary medicine. His therapy concepts are a combination of bio-energetic methods, which also include laser therapy and methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine. They form the basis of a highly efficient, synergistic, and direct treatment approach which this book demonstrates in a compact, comprehensible way for the most important indications of horse therapy. They include, among others: wounds, interference fields, pain, laminitis, equine podotrochlosis syndrome, back pain, kissing spines, hip trouble, spat, tendonitis, horse cough, diseases of the internal organs, metabolic disorders, skin problems, tooth problems, and vascular diseases. The different therapy plans are described and illustrated in detail. A diagnosis and therapy guideline provides methods which can be used directly, even by beginners, for checking their diagnosis and the success of their treatment. Its handy ring binding and laminated pages make the book a sturdy companion for everyday practical applications.

LASER THERAPY AND LASER PUNCTURE IN DOGS AND CATS

(by Anja Füchtenbusch and Peter Rosin)

Low-level laser therapy is an acknowledged treatment method which has proven effective for decades and today is also used more and more often in the treatment of small animals with good success. Low-level lasers are employed locally for tissue regeneration, wound healing, and pain relief. However, they are also suitable for stimulating reflex, trigger, and acupuncture points. Both approaches complement one another, yielding an extremely effective combination therapy that also gives veterinarians access to regulatory treatment methods which animals otherwise tend not to tolerate. 

This is a book for users which is meant to provide a fast and hands-on introduction to the practice of laser therapy. To this end, it briefly presents the way it works before providing tried-and-tested therapy plans for the most important indications in dogs and cats in a way that is compact, comprehensible, and perfectly clear. The therapy plans are based on the insights of Peter Rosin, a pioneer in holistic veterinary medicine, who has more than 20 years of experience with laser therapy and laserpuncture in the treatment of small animals.
