Goats make a noise that sounds like ‘Baaaaa’ and it is described as a bleat. RMSAAM Large and Small Animal Acupressure Class perform acupressure on horses and dogs and Goats. Did you know the basic function and energetic application of acupressure points are the same for humans, horses, dogs, goats, pigs, rabbits, and all animals? If you know the function and energetic acupressure point you can transpose the point location and use the point for Goats. Goats have Association Points, Master Points, Alarm Points, and Ting Points; just like all other animals.
If you learn how to determine what points to use to help Large and Small Animals, you can help Goats using acupressure points. Sometimes they will wait for you to determine which points to use and sometimes they will try to help!
But in the end remember if you learn a point such as ST36, is the Master Point for the Gastrointestinal System, you can use ST36 on a Goat to help maintain his or her GI system. So that’s what all the bleating is about!
