Full Circle Vet, pairing Western medicine with Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine.
Spinal Manipulative Therapy is synonymous with Chiropractic, and is a study of the interrelations of bones, joints, and the nervous system. Spinal Manipulation is often used to “make us feel better,” but it is also very important in keeping our nervous system healthy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners view health very differently than "regular" or "Western" medicine practitioners. Many Eastern cultures believe that living bodies are energetic beings with channels or “meridians” of energy running throughout the inside of the bodies, as well as along the outside.
Herbal therapy refers to medications derived directly from plants and animals. The power of plants is often underestimated, both in their ability to heal and also to harm.
