Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
The therapeutic effects of equine acupuncture, which dates back to 2000-3000 BC in China, are produced when specific points, which are areas of increased electrical sensitivity, are stimulated. This results in increased circulation, relief of muscle spasms, improved body defense system, and numerous other benefits. Dr. Wendy Leich is certified in acupuncture therapy and Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation, a form of animal chiropractic care, and served as the USET’s 3-Day acupuncturist for the 2000-2012 Olympic Games. Dr. Misty Gray is also certified as a veterinary acupuncturist. Traditional Chinese Medicine also involves the use of numerous herbal formulations, many of which can be used in conjunction with western medicines.
Along with acupuncture, the practice offers chiropractic adjustments as an integrative service. Dr. Gray offers equine chiropractic evaluations and adjustments to enhance the health, comfort, and performance of your equine companion. Chiropractic adjustments are used to restore correct biomechanical motions and nerve functions, and to enhance the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain wellness.
