Which complementary treatment does she offer?
- Acupuncture Acupuncture has been used in China for 3500 years. It is the main treatment for a quarter of the world's population.
Acupuncture is a technique for relieving pain and for improving the function of organ systems by stimulating acupuncture points on the surface of the body. Dog Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that Chi, the vital force that flows throughout the body, travels throughout the body along channels of energy flow called meridians. Acupuncture points along the meridians are treated whenever a disease condition exists that blocks the normal flow of energy along these meridians.
Acupuncture treatments elicit responses which regulate physiological processes. Acupuncture spans from ancient Chinese knowledge to Western Veterinary acupuncture. (source http://en.wikipedia.org)
Homeopathy dates back to the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates. Samuel Christian Hahnemann, a German medical doctor in the mid–1800's, developed the system we are using today.
Homeopathy works on the principle of "Similia Similibus Curentur", or "like cures like". When Homeopathya large dose of a toxic substance is swallowed, it can produce death, but when a homeopathic, diluted and energised, minute dose of the substance is given, it can save the poisoned animal. Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, minerals, drugs, viruses, bacteria or animal substances. These remedies do not mask or suppress symptoms; they treat the deepest constitutional causes of the illness. Homeopathic remedies contain vibrational energy essences that match the patterns present in the diseased state within the ailing patient. (source http://en.wikipedia.org)
- Low Level Laser Therapy
This is a more modern therapy which enhances the self healing potential by using the power of light to regenerate energy production at cellular levels. It can be used to stimulate acupuncture points as well.
