Useful for the beginner, but also for pet owners who already have some knowledge of accupressure, Chinese medicine, etc. I purchased this book to have as an ongoing reference.

Unlike other accupressure books, this book provides you with the detailed info on each point. It also offers herbal suggestions, which I think people should learn more about (ie do their own research) before applying to their animals.
