Autumn Animals offers a range of complementary therapies. We think that a holistic approach, combining therapies from the East and West, manual and physiological will aid your beloved friend in ageing well.
We will never advise to forego therapies with your primary veterinarian, these therapies are purely meant to supplement their prescriptions.
PHYSIOTHERAPY is a gentle, non-intrusive and drug-free therapy based on the use of manual techniques for diagnosis and treatment aimed at preserving or restoring the physiological mobility of the various structures of the body which are all interconnected.
Our physiotherapist and manual therapists achieve this by using various procedures including structural manipulations, muscle work, myofascial therapy (think Yin Yoga for animals), visceral treatments as well as stretches and exercises to bring comfort, ensuring the wellbeing of the animal.
ACUPUNCTURE is a Traditional Chinese Medicine using very fine, sterile needles, inserted into the body at certain set points. The goal of acupuncture is to release blockages in the body so that Chi (life force) can flow freely through the meridians or channels. Because this is a subtle therapy, albeit powerful, animals often fully relax and receive the treatment and end up in a state of peacefulness.
NUTRITION therapy is part of the holistic approach that be believe is one of the main pillars of longevity and good health. Just like in human healthcare, there is more research available on the benefits of a fresh diet for our pets. This does not mean you have to cook their meals from scratch! Our certified nutritionists can advise you on the perfect diet and supplements for your pet's specific situation and where needed, hand you some easy recipes to follow at home.
