Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Veterinary acupuncture stimulates the release of the body’s own pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory substances.


Relaxation of muscles at the site of needle insertion is achieved with veterinary acupuncture treatment, creating both a local and generalized pain-relieving effect.


Veterinary acupuncture improves tissue blood flow, oxygenation, and accelerates the removal of metabolic wastes and toxins.


Unlike prescriptions and over-the-counter pain medications, veterinary acupuncture lacks potential adverse side-effects for your pet’s internal organs.


Your pet’s medications and supplements will not adversely interact with veterinary acupuncture treatment; therefore, it can safely be used to treat a variety of illnesses.


How Does Veterinary Acupuncture Work?

The goal of acupuncture is to encourage the body to heal itself. Veterinary acupuncture promotes healing by correcting energy imbalances in the body. Acupuncture enhances blood circulation, nervous system stimulation, and the release of anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving hormones.


Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into body tissue where nerve bundles and blood vessels come together. These collections of nervous and vascular tissue are termed “acupuncture points,” which connect to meridians (energy channels). These meridians carry energy throughout the body, much in the same way arteries carry blood.
