A critical part of being a veterinarian is putting your hands on the animal. This should not be an ancient art, but a daily practice. By using your hands as a tool, you are able to define muscle, fascia, bone, or soft tissue changes. In my practice, I use body care during every exam and treatment. I incorporate a combination of massage, laser, and acupuncture for both diagnostic tools and therapeutic tools in conjunction with my routine examination, allowing a thorough interpretation and treatment of your pet from a whole-body approach.
