TCM Personality Traits

Albert W Lynch DVM CVCP CVA

We as humans often react to stress in very different ways. Some become angry, others exhibit signs of anxiety or try to withdraw. Many exhibit physical manifestations such as chest pain, upset stomachs, or neck and back pain.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries has recognized that these reactions to stress may produce imbalances in an individual’s physiology, resulting in patterns of symptoms, which Western Medicine labels as disease. The goal of TCM is to recognize these patterns of imbalance, correct them, and restore health and balance to the individual.

Your pet’s “personality” can likewise influence which pattern(s) of imbalance he or she may be predisposed to, and aid us in restoring his or her health and balance. Utilize the following table to assess your pet’s personality traits when he or she is HEALTHY. Often there is a combination of two patterns working together, such as Wood and Fire. Please check all the traits which are applicable, make your personal assessment.

What our Clients are Saying

Since Dr. Lynch's return to practice, my Senior dog's problem of many years has improved tremendously with VOM, Acupuncture/Acupressure and Chinese herbs. Dr. Lynch's ability to assess the symptoms and zero in on an effective treatment was remarkable. I am thrilled to have these alternative veterinary services available in Traverse City.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lynch for treatment. The acupuncture treatments that he has done for my cat, Maxx, have done a world of good. It has made a huge difference and the effects from the treatments have been immediate for Maxx. It is so nice to have this treatment option available.

Thanks to the entire staff of Companion Animal Hospital for tirelessly working with me to assist my dog with her fear of nail cutting! She is now able to have this procedure without any fears or resistance! Additionally the wellness care and the sincere interest in her from the staff is so nice. Always pleasant and professional the Doctors and staff are above average. I recommend this Animal Hospital to all my friends and co-workers and many now use them with the same satisfaction.
