an integrative practice
Combining Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and modern complementary therapies with a western medical education to improve our patients' overall health.
Equipuncture owner, Dr. Ginger Reed, grew up on a small farm in eastern Pennsylvania and can't remember a time when she didn't want to spend her days in a barn full of horses. She received her undergraduate degree from The George Washington University and her veterinary medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Reed continued her veterinary education through the CuraCore Medical Acupuncture for Veterinarians certification program, then hosted by Colorado State University, and the Integrative Veterinary Medical Institute certified Veterinary Medical Manipulation Practitioner Program. Later, she continued to broaden her understanding and practice of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine (TCVM) and medical manipulation (chiropractic) through advanced courses at the Chi Institute.
After graduating from veterinary school, Dr. Reed moved to Lexington, Kentucky, to work at the prestigious Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital. When she relocated with her family to Austin, Texas, in 2014, Dr. Reed embraced this time of change -- creating Equipuncture Integrative Veterinary Services with the intention of creating change in the lives of her equine patients (and the lives of their people). As a veterinarian, certified Veterinary Medical Acupuncturist, and certified Equine Veterinary Medical Manipulation Practitioner, Dr. Reed offers equine acupuncture and equine spinal (chiropractic) manipulation services. In addition, Equipuncture provides nutrition consultations, herbal medicine, and therapeutic laser services for our equine patients.
