Rebecca has been helping me with my gelding, Felix, since 2004. At the time, she was the only one who could make him feel any better. Now he struggles with allergies and muscle tension, and Rebecca is still the one who brings him the most relief. She is without a doubt one of his favorite people! What I value the most is that Rebecca is always willing to help me find new solutions to solving Felix’s problems. Rebecca has been key in helping Felix recognize his potential as a dressage horse. I know we would not be where we are today without her and we are both grateful!”
Rebecca’s work is excellent. The time she spends on each horse is phenomenal and unlike other acupuncturists. She doesn’t just stick them and walk away. She is very in tune with the horse and we have had great results with her work. The key is to let her do it correctly by having her out multiple times to work on a horse and not to think of acupuncture as a one time thing. If you let her do her thing, it works.” – D. Capuano
Rebecca has been treating my horse for 6 years and I can’t emphasize enough the role she has played in keeping Hootie physically and emotionally healthy throughout his competitive career. I have seen first hand the benefits that regular acupuncture treatment has had on my horse and I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to invest in the health of their horse.” – M.

Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into Renzi this fall. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.” – Amanda S.
Panda is doing remarkable well. The suspension is back in her gait, she is not paddling, and Katie reports that she hasn’t been stiff in the hips. Katie has been very diligent about doing Panda’s stretches and Panda is very good for her. I do not feel the lumps on her neck any more. Katie says she is “much more solid now”. I have to tell you that this is the most remarkable response that I’ve ever seen in a horse to any type of treatment! Well done and thank you! – Cindy M.
I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping my horse, Justin. He sustained an acute injury to his left hind limb following a sliding stop into a gate while in the paddock on January 6th, 2006. He was diagnosed by New Bolton Center via an ultrasound and full body nuclear scintigraphy with a pulled semimembranosus and semitendinosus (hamstring muscles) and an avulsion fracture of the ventral aspect of the left tuber ischii. Justin was treated by New Bolton for 8-1/2 months to monitor the hematoma and avulsion fracture as they healed. He continued to experience fluid around his biceps femoris muscles and remained tender and weak in his hind end. As I was instructed to increase his flat work it seemed as though he became weaker and weaker. I was also unable to maintain his weight and he had developed a scruff type skin rash along the semimembranosus and semintendinosus muscles on his left hind. At this point I realized that he had other injuries and areas of his hind end that needed attention.
Once Justin was released from New Bolton Center, I had him evaluated by Dr. Roger Scullin. He diagnosed the scruff type skin rash to be caused by a pinch nerve. He was also concerned that so much fluid remained along the bicep femoris area as well as his drop in weight and muscle tone with the increased work. At the time of Dr. Scullin’s initial evaluation, Justin was lame in 3 out of 4 limbs. It was at Dr. Scullin’s recommendation that I call you for acupuncture treatments.
I noticed a remarkable difference after the first treatment. It was obvious that he was in much less pain. Once the nerve was released, the fluid and swelling began to dissipate, he began gaining a few pounds and the scruff type skin rash began to clear up on it’s own. The weekly treatments that followed also proved to relieve Justin’s pain and discomfort. He became sounder and sounder with each treatment.
Ten months later Justin is well on his way to being completely healed. I am currently flatting Justin in full work as well as jumping 2’6” cross rails to continue to stretch out the muscles that he held so tight for 8-1/2 months. I truly appreciate the time and care that you gave him during his treatments. It was obvious that your main concern was helping Justin feel as good as he can, as quickly as he can. Thank you.” -Sherry C.
