Helen has been using acupuncture for over 25 years after first training in China.
It is very effective in the treatment of chronic painful conditions like arthritis and back problems. Many other conditions can benefit, including gastrointestinal problems, skin problems and epilepsy, particularly where stress or anxiety are a factor. It is an holistic treatment and brings about a feeling of well being, whatever the condition being treated. As there are no side effects it is also very useful where medicines are contraindicated or not tolerated.
Acupuncture is a specialist technique we offer at the surgery. We also welcome referrals from other vets.
This is Paddy who has been receiving accupuncture treatment since 2010 when he was unable to walk due to severe hip dysplasia.
He is now 14 and a half years old and still managing to go out on walks.
