Animal Acupuncture, K9 Massage and Healing Balm

Treatments

Due to the Covid-19 Virus, I’m unable to continue doing one-on-one consultations until further notice.
I’m available for consultations via Skype, Zoom, Facebook messenger. I’m able to talk you through different massage techniques suitable for your dogs’ condition and also able to show you on one of my own four demo dogs how to correctly apply those techniques.
The price is $30 for a 30-minute consultation.
Please contact me on 0278264323 for bookings or any questions.

I’m hoping that in a few weeks everything will go back to normal and I’m able to offer my one-on-one consultations again. Until then, please stay HOME, stay healthy and safe!

Dog Acupuncture Therapy:
Acupuncture is recognized by the International Veterinary Academy for Pain Management!

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture is a style of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been in practice for more than 2,500 years.
Acupuncture, in its simplest sense, is the treatment of conditions or symptoms by the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body in order to produce a stimulation and response.
Acupuncture is from the Latin words, “acus” meaning ‘needle’ and “punctura” meaning ‘to prick’.
Traditional Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, focuses on the underlying cause of disease, not just the symptoms manifested in each individual patient.

What condition can be treated with acupuncture?
* Musculoskeletal – osteoarthritis, vertebral disk disease, degenerative joint disease
* Neurological – seizures,  epilepsy, laryngeal paralysis, facial and nerve paralysis and other central nervous system disorder
* Gastrointestinal – vomiting, diarrhea, constipation
* Respiratory – asthma, coughing
* Dermatological – allergic dermatitis, any skin related problems

How safe is acupuncture and does it hurt?
Acupuncture is very safe performed by a qualified practitioner. Some animals may experience minor discomfort when needles are being inserted, but my needles are so thin that most patients tolerate them very well. Acupuncture is known to have a relaxing effect to the point that some animals even fall asleep during treatment.
