Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) has been practiced in China for over 3,000 years. TCVM includes four branches: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Tui-Na (a form of medical manipulations massage and acupressure), and Food Therapy. Dr. Van Dyke will determine appropriate treatment on an individual basis after conducting a detailed history, examination and personality evaluation of your animal.
TCVM treatment principles are based upon ensuring the free flow of the life’s force or vital energy called Qi. When Qi does not flow smoothly along the body’s meridian pathways, stagnated Qi develops. This can manifest as pain, dysfunction or even tumors.
