Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) has four main components: acupuncture, herbal medicine, food therapy, and Tui-na (medical manipulation). Acupuncture usually involves the insertion of thin sterile needles into discrete and specific points on the body in order to cause a therapeutic effect, but may include other methods such as electrical stimulation and moxibustion. The point on the body is called "Shu-xu" or acupuncture point (acupoint). The ancient Chinese discovered 361 acupoints in humans and 173 acupoints in animals.
Dr Madeline Hammond is excited to become a member of the TCVM family and is now offering acupuncture consultations, as well as the treatments. She believes in the balance in an individual's body as well as the balance between the individual and their environment. She is dedicated to ensuring each patient receives the appropriate balance and personalized care for their overall health and wellness.
