Acupuncture has been performed for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese medicine. As further research continues in acupuncture, there is growing scientific evidence that acupuncture is a very useful therapy to integrate with Western medicine in helping alleviate various ailments. An additional benefit of acupuncture is that there are virtually no negative side effects, unlike medications.
What diseases or conditions can acupuncture treat/help?
How does acupuncture work?
Thin needles are inserted at specific locations. These locations are generally in areas of muscle tightness and near neurovascular pathways in order to stimulate nerve function and blood flow. This helps relax muscles, decrease inflammation, promote healing, and decrease pain.
Who can practice acupuncture?
Only licensed veterinarians that have undergone acupuncture training and certification may perform acupuncture on animals.
