Who are we
Yang Sheng Tang - integrating the best of Chinese and Western medicine
Looking for an alternative medical treatment for your dog/ cat? Try traditional Chinese medicine and therapies! According to Traditional Chinese belief, we are interconnected with nature and affected by its forces. The body is seen as an organic whole in which the organs, tissues, and other parts have distinct functions but are all interdependent. Health issues and diseases are related to imbalance of the functions. TCM treatments aim to cure problems by restoring the balance of energies and enhancing overall wellbeing.
With a history of tens of thousands of years, TCM and Chinese therapies are proven to be successful in treating illnesses in animals too, written in Chinese literary works like Shennong’s Materia Medica and BoLe’s Classic of Needling/ Acupuncture.
Based on the philosophies behind Traditional Chinese medicine, all illnesses are caused by an imbalance of vital energies inside the body, such as body dampness, Yin deficiency, Yang deficiency, blood deficiency, Qi deficiency, and others.
The method of TCM diagnosis is composed of inspection, auscultation and olfaction, inquiry and palpation. It enables our practitioners to comprehensively assess the health conditions of your pets, which can otherwise be difficult because unlike us, they cannot articulate and tell you what is wrong.
One of the most common Chinese therapies used on animals is acupuncture because results are impressive. It is believed to be able to tackle most kinds of health problems by stimulating ‘acupoints’. These ‘acupoint’ connect to different parts of the body via meridians, pathways through which energy flows within the body.
Besides relieving stiff muscles and easing joint pains, it is also extremely useful in treating age-related health conditions, particularly skin problems, cardiac diseases, and endocrine diseases.
The procedures are pretty much the same as that for humans. With attention and care, our acupuncturists will gently insert very thin needles into specific ‘acupoints’ on your pet’s body. These needles will stay in for 10-15 minutes to stimulate circulation.
Our acupuncture treatment typically consists of 4 weekly session. They may be complemented by electroacupuncture, acupressure massage, far-infrared therapy, or other TCM treatments if necessary.
To ensure that your furry companion is receiving safe and high-quality therapy, our acupuncture sessions are performed by licensed vets with internationally acupuncturist qualifications.
