Simply, traditional Chinese acupuncture has developed over thousands of years and in many ways seems rather abstract, while medical acupuncture is based on the understanding of nerve pathways and the study of substances released in the body as needles are placed in certain points. Am I saying that medical acupuncture is superior to traditional Chinese acupuncture? Not at all! I have experienced acupuncture from individuals trained in each category and have experienced the same results. Medical acupuncture just happens to be my training and what I’m comfortable with.
I now have a laser that I am able to do laser acupuncture with, rather than having to use needles. It is a portable cold laser which allows me to help with soft tissue healing and pain reduction in small and large animals.
*I prefer to do acupuncture at your home where the animal is least stressed!
“It is my pleasure to recommend Dr. Patton on behalf of 2 of my cats who have done very well from both Chiropractic and Laser treatment. One of the things that has been of benefit to the Kitty parents is the fact that Dr. Patton will work with you as best she can to accommodate your schedule. The cats love the fact that it’s like having a spa day at the house and they don’t have to ride in the car plus Dr. Patton is super gentle with them. Please feel free to ask Dr. Patton for our contact info if you would like to further discuss our experiences with her. We have seen quite an improvement with our fur kids and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services.”
“I would like to take a moment to tell about our success story. We got this cute puppy 5 years ago full of energy and life. Then when she was 2 years of age she diagnosed with seizures. The vet put her on some meds, she gained weight and wasn’t herself. The seizures still plagued her every couple of months even with the medication. We moved down to Peyton, Colorado last year. In September her meds was getting low, so went to visit Stephanie Patton, it was the best thing we did. She recommended that we put dog on a grain free diet and a series of herbs to stop the seizures. Since our September visit she has not had one seizure, she has not taken any anti-seizure drugs, and her energy level has gone up. We highly recommend Stephanie Patton as a vet as well as a herbalist.”
