Acupuncture is a terrific complement to conventional veterinary medicine, and can be especially helpful in challenges that older pets face, including arthritis pain and hindlimb weakness, digestive problems, allergies, and other chronic issues. I was inspired to pursue certification after hearing many stories from friends and clients about how acupuncture had helped their pets; and especially after I had experienced the life-changing benefits of acupuncture for myself.


I completed a rigorous 130-hour acupuncture certification program at the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in Florida, and received my CVA (Certification in Veterinary Acupuncture) in 2016.
