Ancient Art of Healing
Thousands of years of observing the universe, the seasons, the elements and behavioural patterns and how they influence humans and animals, who live within their changing energies, has evolved an art of diagnosing imbalances and diseases in animals and humans.
Yin and Yang (positive and negative) energies that are in all elements of life when in harmony and balance, create happiness and health. When these energies are imbalanced then diseases in the bodies occur.
Acupuncture is the technique of balancing the body’s energy via channels (meridians) that are throughout the body and bring about balance and health.
Western medicine uses diagnostic modalities of science and western medicine to heal. Chronic use of such medicine has numerous side effects and imbalances the natural energies of the body.
The combination of Western medicine and Eastern medicine introduces another level of healing for our animal patients.
Through less use of Western medicines and through an increase of internal healing energy from acupuncture, our patients have benefited enormously from this balance in energies resulting in healing without harm.
Chronic illness and chronic pain conditions benefit from this integrated approach with fewer side effects from the continuous taking of modern Western medicine.
Dr Cliff Meyer has introduced this integrated form of medicine into the Honeydew Animal Clinic where West meets East in Integrative medicine. This facilitates The Honeydew Animal Clinic, bringing to our patients, a wider scope of diagnoses and healing with fewer side effects from chronic medication… A Holistic Approach.
Our motto is: Healing without Harm
The Four Branches of TCVM
TCVM is comprised of four main treatment modalities
Acupuncture is a treatment in which specific points are stimulated with specialized needles inserted into the body. These points usually lie along the Meridian Channels, which are conduits for Qi. Most veterinary acupuncture points and Meridian lines are adapted to animals from humans, but knowledge of "classical points" specific to particular species has continued to be used to this day.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine includes a number of herbal ingredients listed within the Chinese Herbal Materia Medica, each mixed into particular formulas or combinations in order to treat specific diseases. For cats and dogs, the herbal formula is typically administered orally in the form of a tea pill or capsule.
Food therapy focuses on using food to treat and prevent imbalances in the body. It uses knowledge of the energetic properties of food ingredients to create a customized diet for each individual animal.
Dogs and cats can benefit from Tui Na, a powerful form of bodywork with roots in ancient China. It is a simple but effective method of treating a range of health issues.
