Dr. Gazda has been practicing acupuncture since her 3rd year in vet school (2019), where she chose to attend the Chi Institute (now Chi University) to begin her certification process. Acupuncture is a treatment option for issues such as arthritis, lameness, pain, and much more. A consultation visit is required in order for the doctor to evaluate the pet, review patient history, and make an informed diagnosis. In acupuncture this is called Bian Zheng or pattern differentiation. There are many ways to stimulate acupuncture points including hand manipulation, electric current, heat, and laser for example. The selected points depend on the symptoms/conditions of the pet and other factors. The session generally lasts for about 15-30 minutes. The goal of the treatment is to restore the balance between the body’s yin and yang, dispel pathogens and to stimulate the flow of qi (pronounced chi), the body’s life force. Frequency of sessions depends on the condition being treated and the response to treatment.
