Our Therapies

Acupuncture and other therapies

The demand for Rae’s services is indicative of the growing popularity that Eastern therapies, including acupuncture, have in the Western world.

Because of the Chinese origins of her treatments, Rae deals with concepts such as yin and yang, and the life force called Chi.

In Chinese philosophy, ill-health is said to arise from an imbalance in the Chi which, in turn, arises from an imbalance between the two polarities of Chi: yin and yang. This imbalance causes a loss of wellbeing.

Integral to Rae’s treatment is diagnosis, the determination of the causes of an imbalance and the removal of those causes from the patient's environment. With the restoration of balance or harmony in the Chi, Rae’s patients heal and regain health and wellbeing.

Interestingly though, it is the maintenance of wellbeing which is the traditional role of acupuncture and Chinese therapies.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Acupuncture as a form of treatment for ailments can be traced as far back as the stone age and the ancient cultures of India and China. However it is in ancient China that the acupuncture treatment offered by Rae developed.

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture achieves balance in Chi by communicating with body organs and tissues through channels or meridians. Although there is no known physiological equivalent to these energy pathways a Western medical analogy for this type of energy transference may be seen in the relatively recent discovery of the relationship between brain chemistry and the immune system.

When watching Rae work you will notice the use of small-gauge needles being applied to various points on the body. The needles stimulate specific anatomic loci along meridians.

When this is done physiological responses are elicited by the body. These physiological responses are integral to the treatment of almost any disease or condition and have a special place in the relief of pain. Conditions treated by acupuncture may be localised or they may have spread throughout the body.

Chinese Therapies and Massage Therapy

Acupuncture can be used as a single treatment or in tandem with other Chinese therapies, including massage. Being committed to a holistic regime of treatment, Rae’s services include, in addition to acupuncture:

    • Acupressure


    • Massage therapy


    • Chinese herbal medicine


  • Nutrition advice

Rae will often incorporate these other therapies to enhance the effectiveness of acupuncture as well as to treat specific ailments such as emotional, behavioural and skin disorders. Massage therapy covers both light and deep tissue massage and herbal remedies are individually prepared by Rae.

About Us

Rae offers a mobile animal practice for pets and farm animals.

Providing acupuncture and associated Chinese therapies to patients in the Southern Highlands and the greater metropolitan area of Sydney.

By the use of various forms of treatment: the application of needles to traditional acupuncture points, acupressure, massage therapy, Chinese herbal medicine, nutrition advice and even philosophy, Rae strives to create an environment which enhances the health and wellbeing of her patients.

The Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Chinese Therapies and Massage Therapy offered by Rae treats a vast range of animal conditions and ailments.

Rae takes a holistic approach to the treatment of each and every one of her patients. This means that, prior to developing a patient specific therapeutic plan, Rae investigates the physical, mental and emotional components of each patient within that patient’s environment.

In many cases Rae will incorporate other Chinese therapies, along with acupuncture, into her treatment plans.

In your own home

Being committed to her patients and to her craft, Rae believes that the best possible outcome for her patients can only be achieved if the animals are treated in their own homes.

About Rae

Animal health and traditional Chinese therapies are Rae’s passions which drove her to gain the necessary qualifications to practice acupuncture and acupressure and to treat animals whether it is through massage or herbal remedies.

Rae has a Master’s degree in Health Science and specialised in acupuncture at the Bachelor level of her degree.

Animal health is what Rae knows and it is what she is good at. She has been treating animals over the past 20 years.

Rae’s commitment to animal health and wellbeing also drew her to the conclusion that for animals to truly benefit from her treatment she would need to treat them in their own home.

This takes Rae in her little green car to many destinations throughout the Southern Highlands and the greater metropolitan area of Sydney. In special cases and by arrangement Rae will travel further to relieve an animal’s pain.

When Rae is not treating or driving to patients she plays in a band. To find out even more about the benefits of acupuncture contact Rae.
