     Dr. Heidi Hemmett moved to

St. Clair County in 2016.  She has two dogs, Cash and Roxie.  Cash receives regular acupuncture treatments and VSMT adjustments for her hip dysplasia and spinal arthritis.

     Dr. Hemmett first learned 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 successfully completed the 226-hour post-graduate certification course in VSMT (Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy) at the Healing Oasis Wellness Center in Wisconsin in 2017.  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.
