Appt Specifics and Pix

Scheduling our house call session is the first step... I feel my therapies work best when my patients are in their own environments. Going to the vet may be fun for some pets- but there are many types of stress (positive or negative/ sights, smells, sounds) experienced in clinical settings which can overwhelm treatment- so I come to you!

During our session we'll discuss and examine our patient and if necessary I can review lab reports, x-rays, current medications, etc. In-home veterinary acupuncture is great- patients are usually relaxed and examining them in their home environment is often very revealing. My patients are typically quite cooperative during our sessions- but they do not have to remain absolutely still in order for acupuncture to work. It is fine if they are a little wiggly or nervous at first. Acupuncture is a gentle medicine and I practice it that way. For patients that are young or very sensitive to needles, laser acupuncture is another option. We normally work where the patient is comfortable: their bed, the couch, etc...

Sessions are initially spaced at once/twice weekly intervals for best results. My goal is to see improvement within the first handful (4-5) of sessions and then to maintain that improvement- often with less frequent sessions.

My range of travel is primarily within the Greater Santa Barbara area; Santa Barbara, Montecito, Summerland, Carp and Goleta. My availability is by appointment. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays are currently open for scheduling. I am usually right on-time for everyone, but I may be a little early or a little late. Also, please know that your house call appt will be held specifically for you. If you need to reschedule please give me 24 hours notice.
