Mariann has been involved with animals in one form or another all her life. She was a wildlife biologist for 35 years and now has shifted to try to help small and large domestic animals. She has been a breeder of Morgan Horses for over 35 years and has bred Australian Shepherd dogs for over 20 years. She prefers to compete with her dogs in agility when she can fit it in. Otherwise they go with her where ever she goes. She and her family are partnered with several dogs, cats, horses and an African Grey Parrot.
Mariann Carrasco started Blue Island Animal Acupressure, LLC after receiving her certification and national license as an equine, dog and cat acupressure practitioner. After experiencing the many health benefits of Tai Chi and Qigong, she decided to pursue alternative healing modalities for animals including energy healing and certifications in animal communication, food therapy, equine photonic torch and equine essential oils.
Acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It is just like acupuncture but uses touch instead of needles. The goal is to restore, replenish, and maintain the natural harmony and balance needed in animal bodies to create and restore optimal health and well-being. By clearing blocked energy meridians with touch, the Qi will commence flowing and the body can heal itself. Conventional western and eastern medicines’ scientific studies and clinical observation have proven that acupressure can: relieve muscle spasms; build the immune system; benefit chronic health issues; strengthen muscles, tendons, joints, and bones; release natural cortisone to reduce swelling and inflammation; and enhance mental clarity and calm required for focus in training and performance, among other things.
