So What is Balanced Veterinary Medicine

Balanced veterinary medicine is combining familiar western medicine with perhaps not so familiar eastern medicine. Eastern medicine is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or TCVM for the veterinary world. TCVM is an ancient art but relatively new to the western world. This form of medicine examines the whole body, considering mind, body and spirit. Balancing the entire body is key.

TCVM therapies include acupuncture, herbology, food therapy and tui-na. Acupuncture is a wonderful option for pain control, neurologic problems, chronic conditions and much more. Acupuncture involves placing very tiny needles in specific points or channels. This rebalances the body, stimulates or quiets organ systems. Acupuncture techniques include simple (dry) needles, aqua puncture (injecting liquids), pneuma (injecting air) or electro stimulation. The electric stimulation is not felt by the patient however the channels and body are stimulated. Acupuncture is considered to be a surgical procedure and should only be performed by a veterinarian that is certified in veterinary acupuncture. Herbal medicine uses formulas that are hundreds to thousands of years old and yet remain effective and harmless if used properly. These herbal medications are used just like any other medication, but do not have the negative side effects of some typical medications. Food therapy is used to help balance the body and treat underlying conditions. Tui-na is body manipulation through stimulating the body and opening channels.

Laser therapy is frequently used with a balanced approach. This modality can be used on acupuncture points and channels as well as over the body in general. Balanced veterinary medicine uses diagnostics and therapies from the east and the west for the best possible outcome for you loved ones.
