Acupuncture is the practice of penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metallic needles which are then activated through gentle and specific movements of the practitioner's hands or with electrical stimulation. Acupuncture is part of the ancient practice of Traditional Chinese medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners believe the body has acupuncture points connected by pathways or meridians. These pathways create an energy flow (Qi, pronounced "chee") through the body that is responsible for overall health. Disruption of the energy flow can cause disease. By applying acupuncture to certain points, it is thought to improve the flow of Qi, thereby improving health.
Energy Healing and Pet Reiki
Because animals are masters of energetic integration, they are highly receptive to energy healing. Hands-on healing is a 2,000-year-old form of natural therapy in which universal healing energy is channeled to your pet through the hands of a trained healer Reiki may involve the use of Chinese symbols and is a complete energy healing system that heals at all four levels of an animal's being -- physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki can be especially useful for emotional healing following trauma, abuse and fear, and could also help relax your pet in stressful situations.
Emotional Freedom Technique
Emotional Freedom technique, sometimes referred to simply as EFT, is based on the same principles as acupuncture and acupressure. The process involves tapping on certain key points on the body while simultaneously verbalizing key statements in order to release negative emotions. It works on the premise that all negative emotions are the result of a disruption in the body's energy system. There are many different ways to 'tap' with an animal, and Dr. Sathish will use the technique that is most appropriate to your pet's individual preference.
Our culture has become overly dependant upon pharmaceutical drugs. As a holistic integrative veterinarian and healer, Dr. Sathish has found that herbs can be safe and effective alternatives to drugs. Many herbs have chemical and energetic effects and can be used to fight pathogens, reduce inflammation and drain toxins. Furthermore, herbs are now very useful as vitamin and mineral-enhancing supplements. Chinese herbal formulas, Ayurvedic preparations and Western culinary herbs may be recommended if Dr. Sathish sees benefit in doing so.
