Shay Shay means Thank You in Chinese. I chose this name for my practice in memory of my beloved Chow Chow, Hayle. In older age, while happy and healthy otherwise, Hayle developed hind end weakness. The surgeon and neurologist said there was nothing they could do. Knowing that acupuncture strengthens the body’s natural ability to heal, I took her to a veterinary acupuncturist. Hayle and I treasured another year of long walks and great quality of life together. I hugged her on the floor of our home as she passed on peacefully. I enrolled in the next acupuncture class so I could help other beloved pets. I received Certification in Veterinary Acupuncture from the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine in 2009 and have been helping pets in the Charlotte area since 2008.
My practice focuses on acupuncture and herbal therapy for all ages with a special passion for aging pets. As pets age, their needs change. I work with your family veterinarian to provide high-quality integrative medicine. I assist you in making an informed and personalized plan for your pet. I guide and support you before, during and after it is time to help your pet peacefully pass on in the comfort of your home.
