Traditional Medicine in Montgomery, AL

Dr. Johnson is proud to be trained in the practice of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM). It is a medical system that has been used in China to treat animals for thousands of years, which adapted from similar practice on humans that originated over 4,000 years ago. Chinese Medicine is a complete body of thought and practice channeling the body’s energy force (Qi). Like any medical system, TCVM continues to evolve and current research on acupuncture and herbal medicine is beginning to shed light on how it can benefit all animals. Acupuncture is the practice of using needles to stimulate specific points on the body in order to manipulate the energy force (Qi), which runs through the body. If the flow of Qi in the body is unbalanced, insufficient, or obstructed then a disease may result. By needling specific points, balance can be restored to the body and allow it to heal itself.
