Veterinary Acupuncture Procedure
According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body is composed of several pathways called “meridians,” along which energy flows. When disease is present, energy is interrupted, or unbalanced.
In fact, traditional Chinese medicine practitioners would say that interrupted or unbalanced energy is the definition of disease. Stimulating acupuncture points along the meridians can restore energy flow, resulting in improved or cured health problems.
Our veterinary acupuncturists have advanced training, and are experienced in using the proper technique to stimulate key acupressure points for optimum results. The needles used in acupuncture are extremely thin. They cause minimal or no pain and are generally well tolerated by pets. Most pets become more relaxed during their acupuncture treatments, and some may fall asleep.
Please contact us to determine if your pet’s health may be responsive to this treatment modality. One of our qualified veterinarians will conduct an exam, and discuss your pet acupuncture options.
