Acupuncture is a 3000-year-old Chinese practice utilizing hair-thin needles to stimulate the body’s nerve centers, improving blood circulation and releasing pain-relieving hormones. This virtually painless process relaxes muscle tissue and oxygenates the surrounding area, allowing the body to heal more rapidly.
Many disorders can be treated with acupuncture, including:
- Neurologic and soft tissue pain
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Musculoskeletal systemic problems
- Skin conditions
- Respiratory distress
Acupuncture is one of the safest veterinary treatments available and can be used in conjunction with most other traditional and alternative treatments.
