What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine developed thousands of years ago. It involves the placement of tiny needles at certain points in the body which releases certain chemicals to help relieve pain, stress, increase circulation and regulate body systems.

Conditions that can be helped by acupuncture include:

  • Pain
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve injury or paralysis
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Behavioral problems
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease
  • Skin disease

According to Chinese theory acupuncture promotes the movement of energy, or Qi (pronounced ‘chi’) in the body, which helps restore balance and regulate body systems.

Acupuncture is safe, and the needles are so tiny that your pet will hardly even know that they are there.
