Welcome to our Website!
Veterinary Acupuncture & Complementary Therapy, Inc. provides your pets in Greater Orlando, Central Florida with alternative and complementary therapies that combine up-to-date medical knowledge with natural treatment methods. Our goal is to create and deliver a treatment plan that best meets your pet’s medical needs, and your expectations. We are committed to you and your pet for excellent, compassionate service.
We work alongside your conventional veterinarians by providing alternative medical care which compliments their veterinary practice, when in the best interest of your companion animals.
With expertise drawn from years of advanced training, our veterinarians practice Traditional Chinese Medicine and use acupuncture, Chinese and Western herbal therapy, nutrition, veterinary chiropractic, Tui-Na manipulative therapy, massage, homeopathy, and homotoxicology as treatment therapies. These therapies may be highly beneficial for many medical and surgical conditions where a conventional approach either fails to provide relief or produces unacceptable side effects.
Our patients come in with a variety of problems. Some examples are back disk disease, arthritis, hip dysplasia, cancer, liver disease, kidney disease, heart failure, and auto-immune diseases.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: TCM is a lifestyle philosophy guiding the maintenance of optimal health and treatment for imbalances. TCM refers to a wide range of medicine practices which have been developed in China and are based on a tradition of more than 2,000 years. TCM includes various forms of herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (Tui-Na), exercise, and dietary therapy. Read more here.
Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing. Originating in China over 3,000 years ago, traditional acupuncture is the oldest continually practiced medical system in the world. The fundamental principles of acupuncture are to treat the patient as an integrated whole and to identify and remedy the root cause of disease. It can be used to relieve pain or to improve the function of various organ systems in an animal's body. Read more here.
Veterinary Chiropractic: Veterinary Chiropractic is the practice of manipulating the spine and joints to prevent and treat disease. Musculoskeletal and neurologic conditions are well suited to chiropractic manipulation. These conditions include hip dysplasia, spinal arthritis, disc disease and seizures. Chiropractic is also an outstanding maintenance modality for dogs competing in agility, obedience, rally, lure coursing and other physical activities. Read more here.
Homeopathy & Homotoxicology: Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine that is over 150 years old. It is the use of diluted substances made from animals, plants, and minerals. Homeopathy activates the immune system to lead the patient gently and safely with little or no side effects. Read more here.
Herbal Medicine:Your companion may be prescribed herbal medicine for its condition. Herbs have been used in China for thousands of years. They can be used to build strength and immunity or decrease inflammation and pain. Other herbs help organs return to normal functioning. Read more here.
