Practitioner Spotlight: Beth Schneider, Licensed Acupuncturist
Beth Schneider believes integrative medicine (the combination of conventional Western care and holistic therapies) is the best option for our pets. She believes in the spirit of collaboration and enjoys working with veterinarians in the area to provide comprehensive care to animals.
Beth first witnessed the powerful therapeutic benefits of animal acupuncture while working at a holistic veterinary clinic in Sonoma County. She decided to pursue training in Chinese medicine, an ancient and complex system of internal medicine. Beth earned her Master’s degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine from the Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine College in Berkeley in 2005 and received her license later that year. Her postgraduate studies include Dr. Richard Tan’s Balance Method, an internationally recognized system of acupuncture known for its immediate effectiveness in subsiding pain.
Above, Beth is pictured treating Bella the rescue dog. With rehab and acupuncture, Bella is recovering from serious injuries sustained during periods of abuse and trauma. We are happy to report that Bella has regained sensation and mobility in her front, right leg. Bella’s mother reports a noticeable decrease in pain and improved balance and confidence. Chinese medicine is an excellent option for both physical and behavioral imbalances because it treats the whole body
