Certified Veterinary Acupuncturist
Acupuncture has been practiced in China for over 2000 years, and was first brought to the United States in the mid-1880's. It has been an accepted part of veterinary medicine for the past three decades. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), everything in nature consists of two opposite, but mutually dependent states: light and dark, hot and cold, health and disease. Problems arise when these two states become unbalanced, resulting in an excess of one and a deficiency of the other. Unlike conventional Western medicine, with its focus on individual pathogenic organisms or chemical processes, a TCM practitioner focuses on rebalancing an out of balance system, thereby improving the body's ability to heal.
