I've had more experience with chiro and massage, but I've seen a few horses treated with accupuncture. I myself also get occasional treatments of all of the above! I've seen good results from it...especially in combination with other therapies. It sounds like your body worker is pretty well rounded, and may do a little of everything!
One story I can share is about a Stbd trotting stallion named Chocolatier. He was a rig (one testicle retained above the ring) and was being sold as a breeding stallion after his 3yo season. Of course beinga rig was an issue with the potential buyers, so the owners tried chiro cobined with accupuncture and within 3 treatments the testicle desceded and stayed there. He's now a happy breeding stallion with all the correct parts!
I have used accupuncture to initiate labour with my first son and it worked in 2 treatments...
