For thousands of years, acupuncture has played a fundamental role in Traditional Chinese Medicine in both humans and animals. More modernly, veterinarians worldwide have been combining acupuncture with conventional Western and other alternative holistic techniques, to provide the most effective treatment for animals.
Acupuncture involves the insertion of needles into specific points to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. Each acupuncture point triggers a certain response from the body. Acupuncture can stimulate nerves, increase blood flow, relieve muscles spasms, and induce the release of pain-reducing hormones like endorphins and cortisol. Acupuncture can help manage and sometimes even greatly improve many chronic ailments such as:
- Acute or Chronic Pain
- Intervertebral Disc Disease
- Post-Operative Pain and Recovery
