The art and science of Chinese Medicine is based on the principles of the yin and yang, the balance and harmony of the universe and the 5 element theory to recognize the patterns of disease. Chinese medicine attempts to find the root of the problem and treat it to bring the animal back to harmony and good health.
Sport horses live a stressful life of travel, exposure to disease, physical and mental exertion. A wellness program is essential to keep your equine athlete happy, healthy and competing at the highest level. Dogs, Cats and other animals experience stress to their immune system and qi from the environment, lifestyle and changes in the household.
A combination of Acupuncture, chiropractic, Tui Na, Food and Herbal therapy can be very effective for disease treatment and to alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and chronic pain.
5 Element theory can also help you understand the personality of your animals so you can have a more rewarding relationship.
