ABOUT

ABOUT

Mochi 

Mochi is a 3lb female Pomeranian, part of our Animal Assisted Therapy program. She is usually present during treatment as a complementary therapy provider.

Research has found that pet therapy can alleviate pain, reduce  stress, improve overall  cardiovascular and psychological health to people of all ages with a wide range of health problems.

Your well-being is our priority. Should you have any issues with dogs we can make arrangements for her to be absent.
