Woof from TCM Practitioner & Responsible for 'Ommm' at work
Hello, my name is Sissa and I am a licensed TCM practitioner. My passion for animals has guided me on this incredible path of healing and I currently work full-time with Dr. Pedro Choy from the Chengdu University. My studies are constantly taking me around the world, but I am always happy to return home to Portugal, where I am awaited by my little boy and two happy tails.
Healing animals can be rather challenging, as they don’t speak to us, at least not the way we know it. It is easy to ask someone: ‘Where do you hurt’ and treatment can be done swiftly and localized for that problem. But with animals one has to get a feeling. One has to go beyond our visual world and once we manage that, we all of a sudden can ‘hear’ them. I have witnessed astonishing recoveries in my work and I know there is so much more to healing than we know.
The foundation for a happy and healthy life is simple. It starts from a natural and wholesome diet. Just as Hippocrates already knew in 400BC “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” But as our food has changed to become more convenient, less costly and sadly less nourishing, so has the food for our pets. It is not by chance that animals living with humans are getting similar health problems as we do, while animals in the wild do not.
Many commercial pet-foods are solely focused on quantity and price, while the priority should always be quality.That’s why I am so excited to be part of Cooka’s Crew.
Quality, Nature and yes, LOVE make for a great treat. Love is the secret ingredient at Cooka’s and I know that our dogs can taste it!
If you ever have a question about your pet’s health, please do not hesitate to send me a message.
