These may sound like great ways to pamper your pet, but for Dr. Darla Rewers, DVM, it is about much more than pampering. Dr. Rewers uses these healing tools as well as food therapy, Chinese herbs, and Qi Gong in her practice to give animals the very best holistic care possible. Acupuncture has been clinically found, in animals as well as humans, to increase blood flow and to reduce pain and arthritis.1, 2, 3
Tui na (pronounced tway-nah), the form of Chinese massage that Dr. Rewers’ furry patients are so lucky to get, helps to improve blood and lymphatic circulation, loosens connective tissue between skin and muscles, and can be used to make minor adjustments in bone alignment similar to chiropractic care .4, 5
Food therapy is chosen and administered based on the effects food can have on certain organs and issues such as kidney and liver disorders.6 Chinese herbs have many benefits including the management of skin disorders, behavioral issues, and digestive problems.7, 8, 9 Qi Gong is the movement of qi (chi) or life force throughout the body by slow movement and breath work. Dr. Rewers both practices Qi Gong on her veterinary patients and offers classes for their human counterparts.
Dr. Rewers has been fortunate to have studied at some of the most well-known schools in the country teaching holistic veterinary medicine. She received her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida where Dr. Xie (pronounced shay), founder of the Chi Institute, taught veterinary acupuncture. After receiving her DVM, Dr. Rewers was selected for a scholarship working with Dr. Richard Panzer in Seattle on veterinary herbal and energetic treatments. She then continued her education at the Chi Institute in Florida which specializes in Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. She started practicing in the Puget Sound area in 2005 and during the summer of 2009, Dr. Rewers settled into a peaceful, funky space in the Fremont district.
