Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine Veterinary Service in Chino Valley, AZ
Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) is an ancient practice that has been used to treat animals almost as long as it has been used to improve the health of humans.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
It consists of five branches:
- Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCHM)
- Tui-na (Chinese massage)
- Chinese Food Therapy
TCHM is based on ancient medicinal practices that rely on herbs and minerals to correct imbalances in the body that lead to disease. This contrasts with most Western medicines which seek to stop the disease or control the symptoms without correcting the underlying cause. As an integrative practice, we combine this knowledge along with more modern diagnostics such as lab work to better understand your pet’s condition and treat accordingly.
