2000, Dr. Burgess's 10 year old German Shepherd Megan began experiencing
pain and weakness in her lower back and rear limbs that was not responding
to conventional therapy. Her search for alternative and complimentary therapies
that could help Megan led Dr. Burgess to pursue acupuncture training. As
she continued to learn about more and more complementary healing modalities,
she was led to the Nutritional Response Testing training program which utilizes
muscle testing, or applied kinesiology, to detect nutritional imbalances
in the body. Using whole food, herbal, and homepathic supplements, diet,
as well as Veterinary Orthopedic Manipulation, acupuncture, infrared laser
therapy, and cold laser therapy, Dr. Burgess guides her patients bodies'
towards greater balance and strength.
Burgess enjoys her home with her daughter, Aubry (8 years), two dogs (Noah,
14 year old Shih-Tzu, and Quixote, a 10 year old German Shepherd), Peter
the parakeet, and Clara and Popeye the desert tortoises. Cooking for
friends and family, having fun with Aubry, and learning more about healing
modalities are Dr. Burgess's favorite things to do.
