Lynn’s love for all things equine stretches back to days on her grandparents’ farm, spending time with the mules her grandfather kept. Since then, she’s gone on to own, ride, and care for several horses of her own. Several years ago, she sought the help of Marie Soderberg, then with the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute, for her Quarter Horse/Arab cross, Buck. He had been plagued with years of respiratory illness, and sentenced to a life supported with drugs. Acupressure changed that sentence, and it changed Lynn. In 2010, Lynn became a Certified Equine Acupressure Practitioner through the Tallgrass Institute, as well as through NBCAAM. In addition to acupressure, Lynn has also studied Reiki and Aromatherapy/Essential Oils for animals. She holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi, and has made a successful career in sleep studies and fatigue management, through research, writing, and teaching. Along with Diane Wilson, Lynn started Miami Valley Equine Acupressure to provide horses in their area with the best acupressure care possible. She’s available to give talks and demonstrations to local clubs and organizations.
Diane is a Certified Equine and Small Animal Acupressure Practitioner, having attended the Tallgrass Animal Acupressure Institute. She is also certified through the National Board of Certification for Animal Acupressure & Massage (NBCAAM). As the daughter of a veterinarian, Diane has loved animals of all kinds since the day she was born. In her early years, she doctored her stuffed animals with great care, and went on to assist her father as a veterinary technician in her teens. She has devoted her life to supporting animal welfare through participation in local rescue efforts and establishing a pet sitting business. She owns, rides, and cares for her own horse and assists others in training horses through natural horsemanship methods. After an introduction to acupressure, she was convinced of the power this energy work has to make the lives of animals better. She and Lynn Caldwell started Miami Valley Equine Acupressure to provide horses in their area with the best possible acupressure care. In addition to acupressure, she has studied Reiki and Aromatherapy/Essential Oils for animals. Diane holds a BA in Communications from Wright State University, and has worked many years in public relations, marketing, and communications. She is available to give talks and demonstrations to local clubs and organizations.
Note: Equine acupressure is a non-invasive modality intended to enhance well-being in the healthy horse – it is not designed to replace proper veterinary care. If in doubt regarding the physical health of your horse, please consult your veterinarian.
