Did you know that we now offer acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine for pets?
Our own Dr. Elizabeth Gambel is certified in veterinary acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCHM) through the world-renowned Chi Institute. She has extensive experience integrating these therapies with conventional western medicine to help your pet feel better faster.
As you may know, acupuncture is an ancient practice utilizing hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. TCHM uses customized herb and mineral formulas to address imbalances in the body. Both are very safe, and can be effective for many disorders including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Skin conditions
- Respiratory distress
Dr. Gambel also has a special place in her heart for geriatric patients suffering from degenerative conditions such as arthritis and finds that these pets benefit greatly from acupuncture. They often find the experience very relaxing.
