Acupuncture as a Tool to Improve Your Riding

Have you ever thought about acupuncture treatments? Many of our clients are proponents of using this ancient therapy to treat their horses, but they are missing out on the advantages it offers to equestrians. Here at AED, we have all had acupuncture therapies with much success….and we’d like to recommend our clinician!

Do you love riding horses? Do you ever suffer anxiety during a ride or competition? Have you experienced injuries/pain resulting from your riding or training? My name is Dr. Lexy Ballinger and many of the clients in my practice are equestrians. I am honored to be an integral part of their path to improvements in the saddle.

Did you know that acupuncture is an extremely effective treatment for both anxiety and pain? The best part of acupuncture is it can help with many medical conditions without the need to take medications or experience their possible side effects.  By accessing acupuncture points, your body is aided in rebalancing and healing itself. In addition to the long, documented history of acupuncture in traditional Chinese medicine, studies by the National Institute of Health (NIH) have clearly demonstrated acupuncture as an excellent and effective tool for treating conditions such as anxiety, all types of pain, insomnia, headaches, migraines, and stress. If you have ever wondered if there was a different way to manage your equine related injuries or a way to facilitate calm during your rides, please call or write to me at (813) 917-1173/ so I may answer your questions!  Until then….Happy Riding!
