Acupuncture for your Pet

Not Just for Arthritis

Acupuncture has been used for over 3000 years to treat a variety of health conditions.

It involves the insertion of needles into specific points along energy meridians in the body in order to facilitate healing. Electricity, heat and massage can be added to improve simulation of the points. In Western terms, acupuncture helps by stimulating nerves and blood flow, releasing muscle spasms and triggering the release of natural pain relieving endorphins.
