     Dr. Heidi Hemmett moved to

St. Clair County in 2016 when her wife, a Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, was relocated to Scott Air Force Base.  They have two dogs, Cash and Roxie, and    Cash receives regular acupuncture treatments and VSMT adjustment for her juvenille hip dysplasia and spinal arthritis.

     Dr. Hemmett first started learning about acupuncture and VSMT during her fourth year of veterinary school in 2008, in Madison, WI.

     She received her acupuncture training and certification through the Chi Institute in Florida and has been treating patients since the fall of 2015 (see pictures below).

     Dr. Hemmett recently completed a 226-hour post-graduate certification course in VSMT (Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy) through the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Wisconsin.  This is the only program for VSMT that is accredited by the US Dept. of Education.    

     Dr. Hemmett is thrilled to provide acupuncture and VSMT for pets and to bring veterinary acupuncture and VSMT to Southern Illinois and the Greater St. Louis Area.
