Started with horses, which is how I started with it, but a cool part is you can use it on people, or even yourself. Or your cat or cow. It also is one of the few that has been well researched, from quite a few different avenues. I know you like to read and study, Poppy, so here's a list of research links also.

Really cool stuff to know way to go
